It organizes (and saves) your pre-designed descriptions for future use, and your items disappear from the program only if you delete them.

I like Turbo Lister because it's simple and easy to use, with a built-in WYSIWYG (What You See Is What You Get) HTML editor that makes preparing your eBay listings offline a breeze. You can also copy and paste in your pre-made templates made in SeaMonkey (see Book V Chapter 3). After you've input your items and are ready to list, you can just click a button and they're all listed at once. You can also stagger listings and schedule them for a later date (for a fee).
