eBay Sale and More

March 20th, 2015 at 07:41 am

I made another eBay sale. Item was $32.95, so my proceeds will be less than that. We also found a toy in my daughter bedroom to list online. I hope to make at least $10 on it. I might also have two skirts I could sell as well. I haven't decided on those yet though.

I took advantage of a couple Target offers this week that provided $5 gift cards. There is an offer to spend $20 on various health care type items, such as hair care, razor blades, lotion, sun care, soap, deodorant and more. Over two days I bought $40 worth of items, using $13.50 in coupons and received $15 in gift cards. In the end all the items cost me $21.50, and actually probaly even less since I used my Target Red card for the 5% off. I love it when deals, sales and coupons align!

My husband has been fully reimbursed for his portion of the move. We received one payment for the actual travel entitlements which amounted to $628.29. I used about $128 to reimburse cash taken out of our savings account, the remaining $500 went to cover some of the clothing purchased for my husband, gas for travel, and the one night in a hotel.

We received a second travel payment which was for moving some of our household goods. It was primarily all of his clothes and army equipment. It is a taxable payment and was reduced by 25% for withholding. The net amount was $365.90. I will also use this money to pay off some more money we have recently put on credit cards in the last couple weeks.

I feel better when money is flowing in!

    Nice eBay sales Smile Will you get reimbursed when you and your daughters move?

  2. creditcardfree Says:

    Yes, we will get reimbursed to stay in hotels and the mileage on my van. If we remember to weigh our van before loading we could get a little payment for the items we are hauling...including the cats (so dreading that long of a trip with them).

    That's great! Hope the cats manage ok. My auntie travels from England to here with her dog, and that's only 8hrs. Yours is longer isn't it?

    The trip will be over 16 hours of driving. I think two overnights for us, although DH did it in just two days. The cats meow the entire time on the two hour+ trips we have had with then in the past. It's obnoxious!!

    I hope they're ok when it's time.

    Good luck with your cats in the car, my cat does the same thing too! We have a cat cage for her and like the vet suggested, we cover it with a blanket so the cat can't see the movement and feels more comfortable. It kind of works. Instead of madly trying to escape the cage she just meows nonstop. Hope it all goes ok Smile

    For Kari I had to get her some anti-anxiety meds - kept her somewhat calm most of the two 8 hour days, and sleepy too. Otherwise I would have been unable to endure 16 hours of her meowing .. and she probably would have had a heart attack or something. She HATES riding in cars.

    I may get the anxiety meds for the cats. I will have them get updated rabies shots in mid May so I'll be at the vet anyway. I will definitely try the towel over the cage...just wonder if they would get too hot! I just bought some of 'calming spray' that got good/but also mixed reviews online. It was less than $6 so I thought I'd just try at home in the next few weeks and see what effect it has on them in a normal situation. Even house selling can be stressful for cats.
