I knowwwwww that traditionally, Christmas is not over (the 12 days of Christmas have just started!)
But in my world, Christmas is basically over after December 25th, so I am considering this a post-Christmas edition of FFT. Mmmkay?
Roll with me here. 🙂
1. I sold some Hallmark ornaments on eBay
Due to…events (!), some of my Hallmark ornaments did not make sense to hang on my tree any longer.
It occurred to me that perhaps some people might be interested in these particular ornaments, though, so I listed them on eBay and promptly sold two of them.
This is not the type of eBay transaction that will make me rich (we’re talking less than $10/each here), but I feel happy that I was able to do a sort of match-making.
If I just dropped these ornaments off at Goodwill, they’d probably disappear into the abyss. But listing them on eBay ensured that the ornament went specifically to someone who wanted it, and that makes me happy.
2. I made a ham and egg sandwich
I used a leftover Christmas roll and some leftover ham (plus some sauce and spinach) and while yes, this made only a tiny dent in the ham, every little bit helps. 😉
As A. Marie likes to quote, “What’s the definition of eternity? Two people and a ham.”
So I figured a prompt start on using it up would be wise.
3. I bought a book on eBay
Someone had recommended a book that would be helpful as I pick up the pieces from what I’ve been through. But my library did not have a copy.
I forgot that an inter-library loan was an option (whoops!), but I did find a copy on eBay for a good price.
And you know once I’m done with it, back onto eBay it will go.
4. I used a 50% off coupon for some puzzle ModPodge
Zoe and I did a puzzle this summer, and she wants to hang it on the wall.
So, we needed some puzzle Modpodge, and before I checked out at Michael’s, I google and found a 50% off coupon to use.
5. I used some frozen milk to make cinnamon bread to give
I wanted to give a loaf of bread to my neighbors (they’re the ones who let me borrow their lawn equipment and helped Lisey with car repairs) but I was short on milk.
Luckily, I remembered that I’d frozen some when I had extra, in exactly the amount I needed for this cinnamon bread.
So, I thawed that and made two loaves.
