Counting (spending) Chickens...

Before they hatch!
Guilty...and now I am stressing about money.  Gah.

I just booked our family trip to Disneyland in December! 
 I always use Get Away Today - they are simply hands down the easiest company to work with when booking a trip to Disneyland.  (And no, they don't pay me a dime to say that, but they should, I tell everyone I know!) 

I have always paid for our Disney trips in cash from my ebay store earnings.  It's a great feeling knowing that the trip is paid for before you go, down to the spending money, etc.  

So I need some money for that.  Just a little.  ;)

And I bought this on Friday:
Two dressers, a mirror and two nightstands.  We've been using cardboard boxes around here since our remodel and I'm ready for furniture!  We have been married 13 years and have never bought a bedroom set - before we used my set from Ethan Allen that I got when I was 12.  TWELVE.
It's in my daughter's room now.  

I got a great deal on the set at 45% off 
(otherwise it would have never had been in my price range
and paid for half of it in cash upfront.  Which means I need the other half of that money in four to six weeks.  


I currently have 503 items listed and not a lot of money to buy inventory.  So I am going through a lot of stuff lying around the house and trying to list those things first.  I'm also listing a lot of things on local yard sale sites on Facebook.  We have some pretty good ones here - I made $40 yesterday just selling some soccer cleats and a fish tank.  Small change sounds like just that until it starts adding up!

I have a few high priced items in my store right now - it would be REALLY great if some of those would sell and quick!  

I did get my check from the JBF sale - I made $664.00 this time!  LOVE that sale!
