Just wondering how people go about their collecting.



Do you go thru the D&D auctions every day/weekly?

Do you look at all the auction or just those ending today or new today?

Do you use saved searches?

Etc.

I do a combination of all three methods. Since I'm earning my money with my computer I'm constantly online and take a glance at eBay at least daily. I am constantly scanning the German eBay website for (every) AD&D auctions with the help of my own software and add the ending prices to a database. I started this in March and am planning to do it in the future for the UK market, too. I look up special items which I cannot get easily from these markets on ebay.com using manual searches.

I search every day or so using choice keywords. No search engine beyond ebay's search because I haven't found one that searches listing text too. Anyone know one?



Only search new listings. never going going gone or today stuff.



Saved searches yeah I use. however they are very slow and kinda annoying.
