I've been inspired by the girls over at My Dear Trash , thanks girls!!! I have sold on ebay in the past. But I've never done it with a goal in mind. Kelly at My Dear Trash, has inspired me to set a goal, and then work towards it. I have twin daughters that are going to be seniors at the University of AZ. They are both taking 2 summer school classes starting in July. That means that we have to come up with an extra $4000! So with only 3-4 weeks to earn this money, I started looking around my house to see what I could list. I realize that I will not be able to come up with the entire amount, but anything is better than nothing!
So here is what I've sold so far:
This Michael Kors watch is currently listed on ebay, and is at $80.99. I've had it for a few years, and I just never wear it!
I also went garage-saling last Friday, and I spent $54 on about 20 t-shirts at $1 each. Many were Hollister. I also picked up some Chico's, J. Jill and Talbots clothes. We'll see how it all goes!!!
So far I have approximately $420 in my summer school fund. I opened a new checking account at a local bank that offered $125 to open the account. So really I have $545.
Thanks Kelly and Laura for inspiring me to do this!! I think my daughters at the UofA are also thinking about selling trash!
Hope this inspires you to recycle your things and clean out your closets!!!
