Hello friends :) Today's video is a montage of every single trade in the Nothing to Bubbly series, minus the commentary. It's gonna be shorter, faster, better, stronger.

• Where do I trade?
For the series, I mainly used Rocket League Garage, my favourite website for trading. It's extremely active, easy to place, edit and update adverts, and it's got a graphical user interface which makes things more convenient.
I also used rl-trades, which is a fantastic website for searching for offers, since it looks through Garage, Discord, Reddit and Steam all in one place.
Finally, I used the Steam forums occasionally, only because it takes like 10 seconds to place an advert and sometimes you get a bite.
• How do I find prices?
I've got an entire video talking about this, but the jist is that I use rl-trades to search for what people are buying and selling the item for, and the middle value is roughly what the item's worth. If I'm selling the item, I'll go with what most people are selling it for, and the same for buying. I'll also use rl.insider to compare my findings, as a price sheet can be a great second opinion, but I always suggest that one doesn't rely solely on price sheets (I talk about the issues in my video on finding prices)
• How long did this series take?
If you summed up all the time actually spent trading and creating/bumping adverts, I'd guess maybe 6 hours in total. However, this is 6 hours over several weeks (I think 5). There are a lot of days where I didn't trade because I was busy with other stuff - YouTube, university, etc.
Also, when I do trade, I always do something else with it. So I'll accept some invites, do some trades, update the adverts and that's maybe 5 minutes. Then I'll do something else for maybe 30 minutes while I wait - play another game, study, etc. I trade quite passively, waiting for people to come to me, and I find that's the best use of my time.
