5 days $500

or not. So far I'm at $110. $50 for my weekly maid service for my mom and $60 for cat sitting from Wendy. A boatload of almost sales, to bad they don't matter til I get cash in hand. Back listing on ebay, oh joy. Still no sales but lots of useless hits! So, as of tomorrow I'll be down $490. At least I have my $50 maid money to look forward to. Applying for a State Fair job, I'm officially pathetic :)

My challenge, make $100 a day for 30 days.

I need to jumpstart everything, the daughter is going to be expensive again, I'ld like to replace the red bomb I'm currently not driving and, most importantly, I'ld like to put away at least $10k so I can talk to my parents about buying their old house. I need the money on hand to start making the house livable again.

So, that's my goal, make $100 a day for the next 30 days!I know I won't make it every day, but perhaps I can come close after I average it out. Odd jobs and bargain sales, here I come, lol. The hardest part will be no more thrift store shopping!

Oh yes, my other immediate goals, get a couple new pairs of glasses and replace my digital camera. Need to remember to get a eye appointment next week. Clearing out the extra room and hallway for the glasses, getting rooms ready for Papa.

For Barter, Trade or Sale

Have just enered the world of Craigs List Bartering, lol. My sewing machine has gotten more interest now than the enire 4 months previous that its been for sale. So, starting wth my Consew 18 industrial sewing machine. Needs to be refurbished but has motor, table and machine. Offered a table saw, countered with radial arm saw. We'll see where it goes from here!

lazy summer days......

Like to many other things, I let this blog lapse this summer. Its been wet, hot and lazy. Had a yard sale last weekend, now remember why I don't have yard sales! Jordan made about $15, I made about $35. Sigh, at least I got rid of some stuff. CraigsListing and Ebaying the rest. It needs to go!

Cat sitting the boys, back home to the Lillydog today. Start working on some rooms tomorrow. Need to get Jay moved and at least 4 rooms rented so the place is breaking even. I wonder if we could strip them down and rent them out as artist spaces, but I'm just the peon. Of course when I was running the property it made money!
