Our yardsale yesterday turned out okay. Our neighborhood has two designated dates each year where the whole neighborhood holds their yardsales, and the housing association does all the advertising etc for it. All I had to do was open my garage and put out my stuff (although I did make a few signs for the event). It was a rainy weekend so not a great one to have a yardsale, but for minimal effort we did manage to sell some baby clothes and a few other assorted items, and came out with $44.10. Oh, and I am supposed to mention that my spouse sold $1.50 worth of computer junk he has been faithfully saving from yardsale to yardsale. This is supposed to make his not getting rid of it worth it. We have another yardsale in August, and he promises he will get rid of it after that (and I also will purge all the stuff we don’t sell then too).
So $44.10 to restart the student loan payoff fund, now that we’ve emptied it to buy a new furnace. Hurrah!
This link love is short and sweet, just where to find the carnivals I was in this week, because I’ve got more link love coming soon in the form of April wrapups. So why don’t you visit a carnival or four and see what else was going on around the financial blogosphere this week? Thanks to all the hosts that included me in their carnivals:
- The Carnival of Personal Finance was at Lazy Man and Money
- The Carnival of Debt Reduction was at Broke Grad Student
- The Festival of Frugality was at Sound Money Matters
- The Carnival of Money Hacks was at Money Hacks
Have a great Sunday morning!
