Well, May is gone and I’m still trying to reach my $1000 goal. I’ve made some money, cleared out some things, and learned a lot.
The two major things that happened at the end of the month were also the two things that made the most money. First, I took 15 minutes one day and listed 7 things on eBay. They had a deal where there was no listing fees so it didn’t cost anything. I made $40.00 and got rid of several unwanted items.
Then we decided to have a last-minute yard sale on Memorial Day weekend. I usually hate to have yard sales because it seems like a lot of work and we rarely make more than $40 or $50 dollars. This time was a little better – all the kids pitched in to make it easier, and we made about $130!
I still have lots of clothes at the consignment shop and I’m not sure what might have sold, so I’m not going to count that money right now.
Still remaining is a huge tub of consignment, plus all the electrical things that we’ll sell just before we leave: microwave, toaster oven, washer and dryer, etc. Plus two cars!
Altogether, I earned $370.00 in towards my $1000 goal for May. If you were participating, how did you do?
