Mission May: Day Twenty

I am starting to dread these May Challenge updates, because I'm not doing as well as I had hoped.  I've made some progress in the last five days, but I'm going to have to pick up the pace if I'm going to meet my goal of earning $1000 in May.

Here are the changes since I last posted:

  • Sold a basket on Ebay for $14.  Still need to ship, today!
  • Have a Girl Scout uniform item on Ebay.  Currently bid:  $4.75, with two days to go.
I've gotten an email about the car ramps I have on Craigslist, and I need to call the guy.  This Craiglist thing makes me feel a little uncomfortable, especially after this particularly horrific incident.  I've got a lot of stuff to sell once we are packed out (clothes washer, toaster oven, crock pot, etc.) and I am not particularly  happy about using Craigslist to do it.

Current earnings:  $215.  Lots of clothes at the consignment shop, plus one item on Craigslist and one item on Ebay.  I have a long way to go.

I guess I should spend today gathering things and posting them on Craigslist or Ebay.  Or Freecycle, if it isn't of monetary value, but just needs to leave my house.

I hope you are doing better than I am.
