Postage Due

November 14th, 2013 at 07:23 pm

Oops! One of my Ebay customers ended up with postage due. It was $0.54. The buyer chose to inform me so it wouldn't happen to another customer of mine, and didn't expect or want a refund. I did refund the money because I sure didn't want that to happen. And it is just the right thing to do!

My $25 from Swagbucks arrived in my PayPal account. I have requested the money to be transferred to our bank account. I will make another mortgage payment with my recent snowflakes soon!

I did go to Snapfish yesterday and made a 4x6 collage photo as our Christmas card. With shipping I paid $3.75, since they were having a 50% off sale. I purchased 25 cards. I will now need to find a good price on 4x6 envelopes!

The sewing project was slow today. Unfortunately, I had to take it apart. It was too small to fit the case of the piccolo. I will have to make the fabric a little bigger. It was a good experience and I expect as a result I will be able to go a little quicker tomorrow.

I talked to a friend on the phone today. She organized her daughter's closet and dresser and I found things in my basement to donate while we talked. A great use of time!! And the phone call was free because I called with the Ooma. Smile

That is the news from here. Do mail Christmas or Holiday cards? Anyone send New Year's cards?

    If I send any cards, they'd be ecards. I was at the PO on Friday and was waiting in line to get some packages. The lady in front of me (a volunteer at our school) was buying stamps. The guy who works the counter (I *think* he's the local postmaster) is a real hoot of a guy. He was giving her this big spiel about all the different choices of stamps she could get. Then when I got up there he tried to get me to buy stamps - when I told him that I couldn't remember the last time I'd used a stamp - he told me that I still should think about getting some before the price increases to $.49. I told him I'd think about it. Smile

    Good way to get several things done at once (talk with friend/ declutter.)

    I like sending cards and I really look forward to getting them.
    I'll be using Costco again - 50 cards for $10 while on special (otherwise $15).
