    13 different foods from the addiction store. I can't wait to give them to my 3 lucky crabs. Once I get them I will post what I got and what my crabs seem to like. I of course can't remember what I got now I was so excited that I just clicked on stuff and checked out.

    Oh my goodness...you just wait. I couldn't wait to open my box when it came! I don't know who's more excited each night at feeding time, the crabs or me. They love the food---I'll deffinitly be ordering from there again ( and again and again):)

    Thats quite a bit of food their Hermez, thinking that our crabs eat better than us humans, (well at least mine do, if not very close to it.) LOL. I have all kinds of food for them, and they all (6 of them) enjoy it.

    I basically feed them what I eat but of course no spices. I only order stuff online when I sell stuff on ebay then I use that money in my paypal account for the payment of my crab food, then my husband doesn't say anything about more mouths to feed on our 1 income. I have tons of stuff to sell on ebay so I know they won't starve. I was a partylite consultant up until this month when I decided I will no longer be selling and sold off my whole kit that I got for free for $150, so I used it for 2 years and made a profit. I have other stuff to sell too so I know they will always have food especially when I go out of town which I will be doing the first weekend of October when my 10 year old daughter will be feeding them and my husband will be helping her change out the water dishes. I know they won't feed them non spiced foods since my husband puts spices on everything he cooks and even if I tell him to leave a small piece he forgets.

    Wow that is a ton of foods, I hope to get my stock up like that. I only have 3 crabs however currently so that stash you have would last me forever. Will any of that ever go bad?

    I sell stuff that I find around the house that we don't use or want anymore. I hate keeping stuff around the house so I find stuff to sell. I had on there some cute small hermit crab shells but no one bought them and I put them up 2 times. I got them in the 3 pack from the crabbage patch but they were the small ones that are too small for my crabs. I put that partylite stuff on that most of it sold. I never have any one set thing just stuff I find around the house and sell it on ebay if I or my family no longer need/use it. Then I take that money and transfer the shipping into my account so I can ship the item(s) and use the other money in paypal to buy stuff for the crabs from online stores like the addiction store and the crabbage patch or whoever takes paypal that has what I want. Some times I put kids clothes and toys on there too. I have to go into my stash and see what will be next to sell.

    I love shopping for things on Ebay. My youngest are still ok with getting used things from Ebay. But I have found the neatest things to get them from there.

    I got them today, they rock, I gave a small sample of each to my crabs tonight and will see what they seem to like better. I loved getting that package in the mail. All the extra samples are great too.
