IF packages get lost in the mail, they don’t go away forever – and eventually someone else can buy them.
A YouTuber shared her recent experience of buying $500 worth of lost packages from other buyers who originally bought on eBay.
Sarai Jones has 3.5 million subscribers on her YouTube channel.
Her story of taking home $500 eBay packages is already garnering a lot of attention.
She explains: “Lost packages end up in a postal recovery center. If a postal package is not picked up within 30 to 90 days, it will most likely be auctioned off or donated.”
She attended one of these auctions and took home several boxes full of mysterious items.
One of the first items she opens is a plain black phone case, which is worth $18.99 on Amazon.
The second box she opens is filled with tons of oversized dresses and shirts.
Sarai jokingly tries on one of the dresses from the box and spins around for the camera.
Overall, the apparel collection came in at $272.88.
The next box she opens is filled with various items, including a $5.25 sound-activated disco light.
It also includes a 6-inch studio light with a tripod, which is also worth $5.25.
Another item she finds in the box is a $10 LED car light.
Sarai also grabs a $17.99 mullet-style wig from the bottom of the bundle.
Star Wars-shaped night lights that stick to the wall for $22.89 each were also in the box.
After opening every single package she bought at the auction, Sarai tallies up all the dollar amounts.
It turns out she walked away with $850.17 worth of items after spending $500 on lost packages at the auction.
People in Sarai’s common area on YouTube are very amused by her fascinating shopping experience.
One person wrote, “Sarai listen to me… Buy an abandoned storage unit!”
“Love these! Will watch as many of these videos as you are willing to post,” added another.
