How to always outbid others on eBay

I know, I haven't written on here in a bit. But here's something. Isn't it pretty cool when you outbid someone on eBay? After being outbid once, I decided that the next time I saw that iPod I liked, I was going to take it! So later on the same night, I closely watched an auction as it came near its end.

I already had the highest bid for most of the night, but with about a minute left, someone came in with a higher bid. Oh, I didn't panic, okay, maybe just a little, but I planned my strategy well. Having learned from my previous experience, I waited until about 14 seconds were left on the timer. Knowing that other potential bidders were doing the same thing, instead of just entering a dollar more (like most people would) I went for the win, I entered about 3 dollars more. And just like that, when none of those other people expected it, I got my iPod.

"I won!!" I yelled to my wife, who lovingly cheered me on.

It was awesome.
