1. I sold Zoe’s school books.
She finished school last week and I listed, sold, and shipped her non-consumable textbooks.
(The nice thing about your youngest kid finishing books is that you can get rid of them! No more schoolbook storage once she’s done with them.)
I’m not super motivated re-seller, but books don’t feel super overwhelming to list and sell. And that’s why this was so prompt.
I used eBay for both of these sales; I tried Facebook but got no bites.
2. I used up condiments from the taco truck.
Mr. FG and I had gone to the taco truck for a date night (food trucks can make for a nice cheap date!), and we had been given more salsa and hot sauce than we needed.
So, I used the extra on some some eggs and squash that I cooked for my lunch.
3. I got a boogie board at Costco.
We’re planning a beach vacation and discovered we needed a new boogie board. I remembered Costco carries decent boards in the summer, so I picked one up for $29.99.
When I got home, I googled the board and discovered that it sells for around double that elsewhere.
4. I used $20 of Old Navy credits.
Sonia needed some shorts, so when I saw that Old Navy was having a 50% off shorts sale, we headed over.
I had two $10 Old Navy reward certificates, so I used those toward the shorts too.
packed a lunch for Mr. FG (leftovers in reusable containers), cooked dinner at home, and batched errands in conjunction with Sonia’s allergy shot.
