Where on earth has August gone? I feel like I blinked on August first and when I opened my eyes August was half over.
First Thing I am LOVING Lately…
Getting back into reselling items
Once our family started planning our RV trip I decided that one major way I could help add to the savings for the trip was to start reselling things again.
When I started this blog, I put reselling aside for the most part. I needed every second I could scrounge out of my day to do all I could do to make this blog profitable enough to be worth the hours I spend on it–otherwise it isn’t worth the hours it takes me away from my family.
To date I have sold $4454.78 worth of stuff out of my home. My largest item was our pair of 20+ jet skis that sold for $3500 but still you take that sale out and I have earned $954.78 from smaller items we were not using.
I honestly feel my results are not uncommon chances are your home has around $1000 of items you are not using in it too!
Visit my reselling page for how to sell your items successfully using various methods including, yard sales, buy and sell Facebook Groups, eBay and more.
Second Thing I am LOVING Lately…
My Gerber daisies
I am so glad that I grabbed these Gerber daisies this spring and planted them in my front porch flower boxes.
They have provided beautiful blooms week after week. I have my daughter to thank for these beautiful blooms , she picked out all the flowers with me and when she picked these daisies up I wasn’t so sure they would do well but I trusted her and I am so glad I did.
Third Thing I am LOVING Lately…
Doing some baking again
I don’t know if has been the busy year we have been having, or perhaps it might have been my plantar fasciitis that made it hard to stand for long periods whatever it was I have not baked as often as I have in the last week in quite a while.
The baking isn’t lasting long though. I made a double batch of chocolate chip cookies and they were gone in two days. I made these brownies pictured one afternoon and by evening only half of the 9 by 12 pan was left.
I think my family is loving that I am baking again too!
Psst….one more thing
This year I really wanted to put myself out there and get to know exactly who reads this blog and let them see who writes it. Lately I have discovered that Facebook live is a great way to do that. I am doing a short 5 minute show each weekday between 10 a.m. and noon EST. I know that is a big window of time but you can sign up to get notified by clicking at the top of any of my Facebook videos and if you join in be sure to leave me a comment and let me know you are watching–or press like so I can see that big thumb zoom across the screen.
