Sold Our Table & More

April 10th, 2014 at 05:47 am

I sold our old table and chairs on craiglist for $150 yesterday! I have now seen that new $100 bill. SmileInteresting look. I have not decided if this money is going to the mortgage or to save for some other furniture upgrades. We still have a couch and loveseat to sell for a similar amount. That money could easily buy a new entertainment center for our basement. So it is tempting to hold on to.

I also sold an item on Ebay, too. It is already in the mail. My net proceeds were $10.71. That money WILL be going to the mortgage to pay down the principal. I'm expecting a Pinecone payment into my Paypal account today or tomorrow. I will withdraw both amounts after that occurs.

I was notified yesterday that our gift cards from our Southwest Rewards are being delivered tomorrow! Just in time, since I heard both my girls mention their need for clothes. This means I can use those Kohl's gift cards! Smile

Yesterday was not nearly as busy as the day before, but I did have an appointment in the morning. I also had to get my daughter to a late lesson last night. I did manage to fit in some small decluttering tasks, which I documented on Your Organized Friend. I also noticed my husband must be a little inspired by my decluttering. He pulled out 5-6 shirts and a pair of sneakers he no longer wants. I think he may have put those items in my garage sale pile, too. That makes me happy!

Did you sell anything recently? Do you plan to have a garage sale this spring or summer? What decluttering task could you get done today? Should I keep that cash for a future furtniture purchase or put it on the mortgage?

    Send it to the mortgage! I love to see the big amounts you manage to come up with every month Smile
    Don't you have the savings challenge money that you haven't designated for anything yet? Maybe that could go towards new furniture as needed?

    @just a thought, it is so tempting! And yes, I do have my challenge money. I have enough already to purchase a entertainment console, too. I was hoping to get to goal before I spent it. I appreciate your input!! Smile
