My Saturday

Borrowed books at the library.

Six hour sale at the local grocery store. Stocked up on quite a few things. Only spent $32.

Found 10 things to sell. Listed them on craigslist. With pictures. Hoping for some quick sales.

Crockpot smells of something good to eat for dinner. Will throw together a salad. Easy!

Funny. No mail for us today. No bills, no junk. No complaints here!

Money, Money, Money

Yesterday, we received our Verizon rebate of $50 in the form of a Visa debit card. I guess I'll have to incorporate this to be used as part of our spending money. More money in our pocket is always a good thing!

I was hoping for the Army to pay my husband's travel voucher today. I checked and it is not there. It may be delayed because the travel was for last fiscal year and now we are in new fiscal year. My fingers crossed for Monday!

Geez...another sale!

It's getting to be a bit comical, how many sales can I make on craiglist this week? Today makes 3!

First the ugly couch sold on Sunday for $100. Then Monday night, I sold a wall shelf for $10. Today, I sold a pair of tap shoes for $10!

The interesting thing about the tap shoes is that I gave them away to my neighbor last year. I even thought her daughter was wearing them last season. No. Last year they were too big for her daughter. This year they are too small. So, she returned them to me! Her daughter IS wearing the ballet shoes I gave her.

This week I heart craigslist. Hmm...I wonder if I will sell any more. Right now, there is only one item left.

Getting Closer

I made a nice big payment to our emergency fund today. Those braces are almost paid off and she's only had them on for 4 weeks!!

I made a payment in the amount of $1,224.00. Yipee!

This money comes from the sale of our couch, refund from the orthodontist, extra money from last pay period, sale of a wood shelf, and our current paycheck that arrived today.

As soon as the Army makes our travel payment this debt will be gone!! Yipee!
