A Sale and A Credit

October 25th, 2017 at 11:42 pm

I made an eBay sale today. It was an item I have been trying to sell for several months. Netted just $6, but I'll take it. I do have four new items to list soon.

I requested to trade in my old cell phone (well, really my daughter's old one) with Verizon. I was offered just $20 as a credit, which is perfectly fine. We got 3.5 years use out of it. Verizon is sending a box for me to mail it in.

I also checked our account and noticed my husband received $48 for per diem on a one day trip. I think he spent less than $20, so we netted $28 at least. I'm counting the full amount towards the Big Goal.

We are just two months until Christmas. Time to start saving and making a budget now. In fact, I've learned November is the best time to shop and prepare for the holiday. The more you get done before December the more enjoyable it can be.

    I think you are smart to plan for Christmas in November. I have never understood folks who procrastinate and wring their hands with worry at the last minute. Personally, I think they like the drama.

    Good scores on the Ebay sale, the phone refund and your husband's per diem profit. It all adds up.
