    I tried uploading a few things last year but ran into technical difficulties and gave up. I've been on TPT a lot lately. It really seems to have blossomed, and such a great concept! If you have stuff for sale, do you actually make money, or is it like a $5 check once every few months. I'm not in it for the money, I'm just curious if anyone has made "real" money on TPT.

    I've thought about it. I have a ton of material I made for Government as well as for a Social Studies OGT class I co-taught. The problem is my wariness dealing with PayPal.

    I do, but not very much. I have a few free items, and a few items that are listed for $1 that sell (classroom library book bin labels and a metacognition bookmark). I have made a total of $16 in the 2-3 years that I have had it up and running haha My goal is to create more activities for my students and to then list them.

    I have several items listed. I usually make about $100 per quarter, so not a ton, but I think it's a good amount. They pay through paypal, so I always just keep that money in my paypal account and use it to buy stuff from ebay or amazon or somewhere--usually gifts for others.

    I think the clutterfree classroom teacher just reached the $100,000 or $75,000 milestone recently.

    I have a few things and make between $50 - 100 a quarter. I haven't been putting much time into my materials there lately; perhaps when things settle down a bit and I get back into the swing of dividing my time between classroom and office I'll be able to get more posted. It's fun to get those e-mails about a product being sold!
