Easy Cash

April 22nd, 2015 at 02:01 am

I sold some kid's clothes over the last week via a FB group, and today saw someone wanting to buy iron patio chairs. We replaced our patio chairs a couple years ago and have exactly the chairs she's seeking gathering dust in the garage. I'm going to inspect them tomorrow, and hopefully have them out the door by the end of the week.

More decluttering was done in the office and master bath. I listed a couple books on Amazon, but my ebay items failed to sell. I also have a box of postcards (gees, maybe I am a hoarder) that a co-worker's daughter would like, so I hope to get them out the door soon too.

We've just received the information about DD's school trip to Washington DC next year. It's a groaning $1200+, and of course, all her friends are going. So--in a burst of inspiration, we're doing the 52-week savings plan which will fund it nicely. There are also fundraisers along the way, but if we have overage, she can use it for spending money.

And today was a NS day!

    I used my 52 week savings to fund my daughter's band trip this year. It worked great! The DC trip for my youngest was close to $1200 too. She did have a really good time, so I think it is well worth it.

    Great work on your decluttering!!

    Ouch! That is an expensive trip, but it sounds like it'll be worth it.

    On my local FB group this week someone was selling a metal chair and table patio set. Looked nice. Glad you might have found a buyer for your patio chairs!
