Oops haven't checked in for awhile. We sold $10 in comic books and $27 in baby clothes. Here's our current list.

$535 comic books
$40 diapers
$175 collectible comic character figurine
$2.50 baby shoes
$27 baby clothes

So we are at $779 for February. I have listings ending this weekend- I should get $75+ from diapers (my last lot), $10 from comics and $5 from baby shoes. I need to list my coach purse (should get $60 for that), a Guess wool coat, and more baby clothes. Hoping that I can get all these listed this weekend to end next weekend which should round off our month. DH is off this weekend so hopefully more comics will be listed too.

Crib sets are hard to sell I sold my whole baby lion kings set with all accessories for $75. Your right that they are only worth what someone else will pay!

Re: Earning/Saving Extra Money ~ Check In Here ~ Feb 1-14

Hey ladies-
I would LOVE you join your chat I've be casualy buying and selling on CL for several years. I've never sold on ebay but I am thinking about giving it a try. I have several NIP diapers which just aren't selling on CL and I'd really like the space back. I am considering selling my personal stash too - one too many rashes and I am about ready to call it quits. I've been lazy about posting things lately so my goal will be $100 and getting at least 5 ads on before the end of the month.

That's awesome! Way to go!

It's such a great feeling to clear some space of stuff you don't need, as well as getting some $$$ for it! I've been listing quite a few baby things for cheap, I figure I make a little cash and room and help out a Mama.

Re: Earning/Saving Extra Money ~ Check In Here ~ Feb 1-14

Everyone's doing so well!!

I haven't made much progress, but I did sell another dipe.

$140 for wings-> This is the missing check
$5 for inserts
$5 for paint**
$30 for bedding set
$12 for flowers
$14 for flowers
$5 for tiara
$5 for message board**
$20 for wings**
$10 for car seat pads
$35 for 2 diapers
$95 for 5 diapers
$35 My check
$211 DH's OT
$22 for 1 diaper

** are pending

Hoping to get together with pendings this weekend to clear those up.

Also, I have the best mom ever. She's an ebay wizard (no, seriously, that's all she does for a living, it's amazing). Anyway she decided that this week (her birthday week no less) she was going to do nothing but list MY stuff for me. I took her three boxes of stuff and she had at least one other box of stuff that was mine. It's her way of helping us get ready for the baby and I am *so* grateful!

Our tax return is supposed to come in next week, and that will give us enough to pay off the last CC, pre-pay our CSA for the season and a tiny bit extra for savings... assuming nothing else falls apart in the meantime! (both our chest freezer and lap top are threatening... I don't get why everything is falling apart at once! Rgh!).

I should have another craigslist sale today and this will bring me over my goal! YAY! Hopefully she shows up. I am still waiting on payments from the books and movies I sold as well as the threadup bag of clothes I sold. I hope they come through soon. Now that I am over my original $500 goal (once I receive all the pending payments) I am hoping to make an additional $100. Here's to hoping! I'm just not sure what else I have around here to sell. I have LOTS and LOTS of kids clothes but I am planning on them all going to a large kids consignment sale next month.


Make $500

Selling totals -
1. Glider $60
2. Nursery bedding $100
3. dvd's $20 (waiting on payment)
4. rug $100
5. 2 books $25 (waiting on payment)
6. bag of clothes to thread up ? (waiting on payment)
7. CL clothes $125
8. Fetal Doppler $50
9. bag of infant clothes $25

total so far = $505!
remainder = $0
Above goal = $5 +
