I really really wanted to start a week in review segment today, but of course I left the house without my flash drive today… My flash drive that had all my blog notes on it and all the pictures I wanted to upload to Craigslist and my Facebook yard sale groups today. Guess I’ll be up late posting photos tonight to try to catch up and it looks like I will be winging this first week in review. Not really the impression I wanted to make with it, but oh well, that is how life goes these days.
Let see if I can remember everything from last week.
We did pretty well with selling things. Lacy finally sold one of her large terrariums and made a few extra bucks by delivering it. I was nickle and dimed to death all week and kept making little sales, but I guess it is better than nothing! We both sold a few items that we had listed on Amazon and I had my socks sell on E-bay (yes, socks, that will be a whole blog post of it’s own soon). I quickly discovered that the socks were missing and I had to e-mail the person this morning telling them I would have to issue them a refund or a replacement (super lame).
We planned on having a yard sale this Sunday and I spent all night Saturday preparing for it. I pulled out a bunch of bakeware and glassware and cleaned it all up and priced it all. Then we decided that we needed a break and slept in instead. I still had the intention of having a mid-morning yard sale, but that didn’t happen either. Instead I watched Alaskan State Troopers on Netflix all day. I did sell a wallet for $3.00 via Facebook Yard Sale though. Woo Hoo! Big money! I did also photograph all the the items to list online this week (and left it all on my flash drive at home today).
Saturday was at least a productive day. I took the car in to American Tire and they rotated and balanced my tires. I love American tire. They take such good care of you in there. I made an appointment for 9am and got there a few minutes early and I was out of there by 9:15! After American Tire I went to PepBoys and got an oil change an new windshield wipers. All of these things are just steps toward selling my car. Earlier this week I replaced the windshield in it. All I have left to do is get it detailed and then I can put it up for sale. It makes my tummy do a little flip flop to actually say that I am going to sell it. It’s kind of funny the things we get attached to.
The rest of Saturday was spent with mom, who brought down a bunch of purses and wallets and other goodies for us to sell. Thanks Mom!
I’m sure I am leaving out something interesting from last week, but I guess that is just how it will have to be for now. Hopefully next weeks review will be a little more organized. We can hope anyway!
