I worked two days this past week. I could have worked three, but I had something to take care of one day and if it pans out, I will tell you all about it next week. :)
Now onto what we did this week...
We ate ALL of our leftovers from last week. The Potato Soup, Spaghetti, Apple Crisp, and cooked apples, all gone.
I sold a pair of shoes for $10 on my Facebook yard sale group, which meant I removed them from Ebay and saved myself from paying Ebay and Paypal fees.
I picked up a Bananagrams game for $1.00, which was complete with all tiles and instructions. I bought these because I need the Scrabble-like tiles for a project, but the game looks like fun, so I might keep it and look for more tiles. Either way, this was much cheaper than Scrabble tiles are going for on Ebay right now.
I picked up four cds for $1.00 each. We will add any songs we want to our i-Tunes account and then trade them at McKays making them free for us to own.
I found a bean pot here in Tennessee! I've not seen one of these here at a yard sale before and was excited to see it. I only paid $2.00 for it too, which was a sweet price. ♥♥♥
Lastly, I found a brand new Wilton Mini Cake Pan in the heart shape for $3.00.
My daughter had her own stash of goodies she picked up too including a really cute lime green jacket. No photo of that today.
Afterwards I took her to the mall to spend her birthday money. My "little girl" turned 17 years old on Friday. Afterwards I took her out to eat at her favorite restaurant and bought her dinner, which she loved. And by the way, I did not buy anything at the mall. LOL
This month I've not sold very much on Ebay. I don't know if it's because people are afraid to spend their money due to the economy or if they are saving money for Christmas. Either reason is understandable.
I feel like I spent more money than usual last week on gas and meals out and dd's birthday. I need to go to the store for my Mom today and pick up some things for her and I need to get the Sunday paper for the coupons today, but after that I am going back into gazelle mode.
Did you have a good frugal week?
