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!!!
