Ebay Sale on A Dark Day

November 5th, 2013 at 07:42 pm

I sold a book on Ebay today for a profit of just over $4. I already sent it off in the mail. I will pull the profits from PayPal later this month when I am done selling!

I think we have decided to sell our old couch and loveseat. They really do take up too much room in our basement storage area. The plan is to list them on Friday afternoon and hope someone is willing to purchase this weekend. I think we will ask $100 for the set.

Our Ooma Telo arrived today. I hope to get it set up tonight or tomorrow. It should only take 15 minutes according to the directions. We will be getting a new phone number as our current one is not available for porting. After I determine it working as planned I will cancel the regular phone service and contact everyone with the new number.

After I voted for mayor, city council and a proposed tax, I spent money on new bathroom rugs. Our old set was coming apart in the dryer since they had those rubber backings. I bought two new cotton ones without a backing and spent just $16 out of pocket after using my Kohls cash.

About a week ago, I redeemed some airline miles for a three month daily newspaper subscription. The first issue arrived this morning. My oldest daughter dove right in to read the news! We took advantage of this last year and it said one per household, so I wasn't sure if we would actually get the paper this time.

It is rainy and dark here today again. This is not helping my transition to less light in the evening! Any great ideas for handling the dark days of winter? Is there anyone else with a VoiP phone system? Did you vote today in your local elections?

    The only thing on our ballot was a school bond measure...DH and I both voted last week and mailed them in.

    Dark days make me hibernate! At least it is good for fires in the potbellied stove, and warm cocoa. Make things in the oven to warm up the house. If you get sick of cookies, make french fries (sweet potato) or mini pizza or single person pot pies with crusts.

    Vote for city council here, important to keep the environment a priority in my seaside town.

    Let me know how you like the bathroom rugs. I bought some earlier this year (after old ones disentegrated in the wash - UGH). I had washed many times, but will be more careful in the future (checking the wear and tear before washing). Anyway, I bought some rugs that were kind of glorified towels (no backing) but they started to come apart on first wash. I am so disappointed! All of the above are "machine washable", and our washer has extreme delicate cycles.

    I am thinking just throwing a regular towel by the showers will work better. Not as pretty, but more functional. But if Kohls has nice ones, I might try one more time.

    @@MM I have another set for another bathroom that I have washed a few times with no problems. This set from Kohls is their Sonoma brand. I hope they hold I'm hoping to wash them more frequently than the ones with the rubber backing. I think the towel route is a good one if is frugal and easy to wash!

    We had a ton of stuff to vote for here. And a lot of council seats up. Both sides of the ballot were filled with choices.
