Yeah sold some things...

January 12th, 2008 at 03:06 am

at the second hand shop and made $42.86 so I put $21.43 into the EMF and kept $21.43 for gas.
New EMF total: $40.43

Then I took the retractable washline and got vouchers for $28.57 which I will use for food.

Also got vouchers for $8.57 and $10.71 - these I will use for meds and whatever else we need during the rest of Jan.

All in all not a bad day and I feel Blessed.

My brother offered to take us shopping for food this morning - I think he really worries about how we are scrimping through the days at the moment. So we are going later to get some more substantial food than I have been buying over the past few weeks.

Although it is a challenge to live like this, I am trying to make it fun as well. DD has friends over today (twins) and they come from a home where money is just not an issue - I think they were amazed when I sold the stuff. They asked why and I told them - not a bad thing for them to know how "the other half lives".

Have still got to get going on all my household chores but just wanted to do a quick update because I know I will forget the details if I don't.

    Great that you were able to get some relief on those returns!

    Nice brother!!

    Here's a place you might find interesting:

    Of course, you've got to be able to cook from scratch! Learning how to bake bread,cookies and cakes and such from a recipe might be fun for you to do with your daughter.

    Hope you have a nice weekend!

    Thanks for the link - just before coming back here I was just looking for recipes - synchronicity????
    We do a lot of cooking from scratch - it is the biggest way to save on food expenses and stretches the basics to the max.
    Have a good day

    You did a great job! Sometimes it is so iffy when you go to the resale places, cause you never know how picky they will feel like being. I am so glad you got so much! Your are doing a great job at making "do". Have fun with your sweet brother!
