Good Monday to you, friends! I know not everyone feels this way, but I love Mondays.
They’re like a mini New Year every seven days…a fresh start! A week of possibilities stretching out in front of me!
1. I helped Lisey list a bunch of books on eBay.
She’s been cleaning out her room, and she found 7 book sets she wanted to sell (Sonia and Zoe have outgrown these books too, so no point in keeping them.)
She hadn’t ever sold anything on eBay before, so yesterday I got her started with the first two, and she took over from there.
One set sold within just a few hours, so we’ll pack it up and ship it today!
2. I helped Lisey do her taxes for free.
This is her first year filing, and I helped her learn how to use Turbo Tax.
Turbo Tax is actually free for people who, like Lisey, have simple returns.
(She has exactly one tax document. Lucky girl! I have around 9283725.)
Joshua also has exceedingly simple taxes, so he should be able to use Turbo Tax for free as well.
3. I planned out my meals for the week and made an Aldi list.
I squeaked by ok last week without visiting Aldi, but I don’t want to do that two weeks in a row, or my budget will suffer!
4. I listed a Star Wars movie on eBay.
Mr. FG and Sonia and Zoe have been working through the Star Wars movies, and instead of paying $20 for the digital version, we’ve been buying the physical copy because it’s cheaper.
(This makes zero sense to me. How is it cheaper to buy a manufactured copy than to get a digital download? What gives, Amazon??)
Anyway, they’ve been watching the movies and then I list them on eBay. Thus far, we’re just about breaking even, which is pretty great.
5. I used my Old Navy card for 40% off.
Lisey needed some new jeans and a couple of other things, so I used my Old Navy card to pay.
(They were offering a 40% off discount if you used that card.)
I also had a $20 reward on the card, so I used that toward my purchase.
Of course, I’ll pay the credit card right away. Because interest will negate a discount in a hot minute.
