Bath and Body Handsoap Deal

October 12th, 2019 at 03:20 pm

Bath and Body always sells great for me, it’s not a huge money maker but it’s fast and consistent! They had their handsoaps on sale for 5/$15, plus $10 off $30 online. They are normally $6.50 each so this is a great price! I got 5 for myself and 5 to sell. I have a few buyers who always want these so I didn’t even have to post them for sale, I just message my buyer and she said of course she wanted them!



Bath and Body Foaming Hand Soaps (Bought 10)
Regular Price $6.50 each
-5/$15 Sale Price
-$10 off $30
+$7.68 Shipping, Handling and Tax
Total = $27.68 Just $2.77 each!!
*I kept 5 for myself
(Marked $4.00 each for rummage sale)

I will update them to sold once they are picked up!
Quick and easy $6.15 profit without even leaving the house!

$20K Update - Getting back on track

October 9th, 2019 at 01:54 pm

While the blogs were down we had a really fun vacation to MN. We went to 2 MN Twins games, and also went to 3 casinos! MO had great luck and had two handpays so we came home way ahead. I planned on putting some of the money in savings, but it looks like it's going to be going to a bunch of bills instead, which in the long run is keeping us from taking money out of savings, so that is good. We had a $700 vet bill, 4 new tires on the old truck, poured a cement patio at one of our rentals and paid a bunch of medical bills. Thankful we have the funds to cover all of these expenses. We also caught up the 52 Week Challenge Bin.

My car is dead

April 11th, 2019 at 12:02 pm

Well my Malibu finally died. It was a 2002 so it's definitely had a long life! I got it in 2008 for $4000 and it made it to 230,383 miles and over 11 years!!



We don't have anywhere to scrap it close to use, but MO was able to take it to the dump for free.

We took the license plates, CD player and battery. We were able to move the battery into MO's old 1997 Cavalier and we will now drive that as our commute car until it dies. Our other two vehicles are our old truck and our new truck, and with being an hr away from town we definitely need a car for mileage/fuel costs.

FB Sales Week of 3/31/19

April 8th, 2019 at 08:12 am

It was a great week for sales, but a hard week as well. We sold the twins stroller. I was lucky to get back what we spent on it since it was a used stroller. It was taking up a lot of room in the garage and was painful to see it there. We still have so much other baby toys, clothes and furniture to deal with too. For now most of it is crammed in a closet, but it won't all fit so some is taking up space in one of the extra bedrooms.

Well anyways.....sales total for the week was $606.50!!!
