April Ebay

April 22nd, 2010 at 08:36 pm

I don't want to talk about the recent personal issues in my life but I do want to blog a finance update.

All my April auctions have ended. I do have a few that will end next Friday which is technically still April but since I count Saturdays (the day I ship) I will consider those the first week of May.

I had a person pay $38.50 for a 2 disc cd. I had another person pay $18.50 for a 1 disc cd. Who knew that the random collection of old cartoon soundtracks I had in my basement gathering dust was this valuable?

Anyway, the grand total for April wound up being...


Best month yet. I am $138 away from my $6000 savings goal. Then I am going to hold off on aggresive saving and get toward aggresive debt payment. That 12K loan will be gone in no time.

Prior to December of 2009, I had no savings. I literally had $0 cash. Now I have almost $6000. I am excited.

I also still have over $840 in checking and all my expenses for the month have been paid. I get another paycheck April 30. So that $840 is basically checking account buffer for now. Once I pay everything due the first two weeks of May, I'll probably make a transfer of $138 to savings. Wink

    That is awesome! It's hilarious how much some of the things we find gathering dust are worth to other people, and it leads to profits. I hope that you have some insurance of other things lying around like that! Before we moved overseas I would sometimes find great things at the second hand store or closeout store to sell at a tidy profit on eBay. (My favorites were a coat that I bought for $50 and sold for nearly $300, and some shoes that I bought for $3.99 that sold for almost $70!)
