$20K Update - Received Insurance Check for Hail Damaged Roof

October 23rd, 2019 at 09:12 pm

We had hail damage to the roof on Rental #2. Our home insurance covered it and sent us a check for $6994.45. We put it into savings, but since it is being held by the bank until we actually work on the roof, I am not adding it to the savings totals yet. We won't even think about doing the roof until next spring as we live in the Midwest and it is already cold and snowy.

I won football picks last week and won $60! MO won this week, but we haven't gotten his check yet, so I will add his once we get the check.

We also got our yearly dividend check from our local gas station and added that to savings.

Bath and Body Handsoap Deal

October 12th, 2019 at 10:20 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

(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 08:54 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.
