Determined to Recoup

August 28th, 2017 at 10:02 am

Yesterday's garage cleaning did mean I found some more items to sell and declutter. I've sold DD's red wagon from her childhood days (kind of sad?), and it's awaiting pickup with the bathroom light fixture.

I've also cashed $25 out of Swagbucks which is being transferred to my Big Goal UK house fund.

In other frugal news, some of the fridge veggies found a new home in a pot of soup, and I've made extra brown rice and quinoa for salads this week. DH is taking soup to work for lunch all week.

My adjunct class starts tonight, so it's good to be back in the earning cycle. it's just composition, but maybe I'll have another superstar like my ex-con from two terms ago.

    Man, I wish we had something worth selling so I could chip away at my own dang sinkhole! AS and I cleared out about a bushel of old clothes, but they're not good enough for anywhere but Goodwill (if that).

    You can donate clothes that are not so nice to Goodwill and they will donate them to companies that recycle textiles. At least I've heard that.

    Kids' clothes, ceejay? I've sold lots of them over the years.

    My kids are pretty hard on clothes! They go through both of them and usually came to us as a hand-me-down or thrift store find. But we are due a clearout of their stuff, so maybe I'll keep an eye out for anything still in decent shape...

  5. Myfinancekits Says:

    If you have growing kids, you will always have some clothes to hand out or sell

    Snow boots, skates, and that sort of stuff usually has some life left in it, ceejay. Good luck!
