ducks-in-a-row-121207

This week I:

  1. Made $1.45 with Google Adsense
  2. Sold 3 books at Half.com
  3. Nearly finished my test site for a Candy Buffet business
  4. Almost finished sewing 36 tres chic cocktail napkins (sorry, meant to have pic. will post later) for an Etsy shop
  5. Decluttered my Closet & drawers by 50% (but found nothing worthy to list on Ebay)

Total made: $27.49

Minimal progress. But this week was more about setting up the my ‘ducks in a row’. Getting ready for take off.

I plan on making progress by:

  1. Writing another article or two for ehow.com
  2. Opening my Etsy store & design banner
  3. Continue collecting and recycle my aluminum cans
  4. Clean out kitchen clutter and post on Ebay & work’s Eboards
  5. Continue to think of more ways to produce money πŸ™‚

How is your progress?

ps – Be sure to check out Coupons.com for your free grocery coupons. This weekend, there is like huge sales at the grocery stores due to the holiday. I am getting my California Pizza Kitchen’s (CPK) pizzas for $1 cuz I am armed with my coupon(s).

      Right on Girlie! I love the goods. The pillow is soooo cute. And the wedding favors are such an exceptional personalization. Very cool πŸ™‚

      I have to make myself do a lot of it. In the nights I come home wanting to put it off until ‘the next day’… I must pick up and chug along. πŸ™‚

    If there is nothing worth selling on Ebay from your closet, would any of the items be worth taking to a consignment store? Most stores pay between 40-50% of what they earn. If there’s nothing that will sell at all, donate your cast-offs to a charity. You can use it as a tax deduction. Just make a list of everything you donated. The charity will have a standard list of what the items are typically worth.

      No, I don’t think any are worthy. Basic tees, basic blouses, etc… thank you for the tips. I am, however, delivering 3 big bags of clothes to charity. And claiming my write off. πŸ™‚

      Speaking of, I need to go check out the consignment shops. Now that I dumped 50% of my clothing I need to replace with a few good pieces.

      Oh thank you. My friend and I are still toying with the candy buffet idea. I still need to research the cost to get started. Shouldn’t be too out of place. Especially because I have 40% coupons for the candy jars. πŸ™‚

    Really a very good start!
    I have also tried aluminium cans recycling at my home n I was able to collect many cans. This weekend I will be going to local market to sell them.

      Oh thank you.

      I am so glad to hear that you are applying a win-win situation of helping the environment and recieving a payment at the market. I look forward to hearing how it works out for you. πŸ™‚
