I would do them all at once, or at least break them down by category. If your parts are rare and or priced low your private messages will start distracting you from the posting you are trying to make. Just my 2 cents

I do all my pictures first. Then I put them and the text in a word document so I can edit as I want. Then a quick copy and paste into a window here and done.

^^ Spot on. Make your post, including the image tags, in a word processor. The simple Notepad provided with Windows works well.

If you have more than 10 pictures, only include 10 pics in each post, and make all of your posts in the word processor before copying and pasting each of them. That way you get all of your items posted at the top of your thread before people start posting replies, breaking up your sale posts.

Ask Bacci. He is a damn pro at this.

A lot of stuff you have is probably similar to the stuff bacci likes and resells on his site. Might be smart to just see if he's interested in a bulk purchase.

Otherwise, group all the similar stuff together and take a pic. Repeat until finished. Then make a numbered list with prices per pic. Keep the numbers going across pics. eg...

PIC1
1. something $5
2. something $20
3. something $10

PIC2
4. Something $8
5. Something $8
6. Something $8

In a huge post one thing that's important IMHO (and I hate to say it) is the rules. When you start getting posts and PMs at the same time wanting the same items it gets confusing. I'd do a "posts only" or "PMs only" so you can sort through easily.... Unless you're hyper organized.

personally, i hate people that don't label or at least group things together for reference. i'm sure that if you think about how you like to see a sale post and don't, and just make it like you want to see it. a huge group pic with no details sucks, especially if you want to sell this stuff. so don't get lazy and spend some time making it. it will pay off in the long run.

I feel like the convention is items list and THEN the pic, but pic then list also happens (I think that's how Bacci does it). Either way, as long as it's organized somehow.
