Throwing Water Out of a Life Boat

February 21st, 2019 at 03:28 pm

So I've got a nice long to do list of things to complete while I'm off. (#1 is to enjoy the baby, but while he sleeps I can be productive too!) One of my primary tasks is decluttering this house we have lived in for four years now. I feel like I'm constantly tossing stuff only to barely make a dent in the clutter--and we are NOT hoarders by any means! It's like using a bucket to toss water from a sinking life boat. Five weeks from now, I hope to report that our life boat is in a better place.

I posted a number of items for sale on our local Facebook garage sale. It appears that the group is not as active as it once was. I'm a little concerned I will get no interest. If that is the case, I will try Craigslist and possibly ebay. The money earned from sales will go into my Christmas Challenge account.

After over a year of using Achievement, I am finally within 600 points of earning a $10 reward! To be honest, I struggled to wear my apple watch last year so that could be part of it (FYI...watch was inherited not purchased by me). I will be excited to add those earnings. I am also looking forward to getting out more and using my Ibotta app too. I am halfway to a reward there as well.

I updated my current unsecured debt total as of today's date. That should be lower once my statements close for a few other accounts. Love to see that number go down!

    Congrats on the soon to be $10 reward! Nothing like free money!

    Hope you can generate some sales to make some extra money for your Christmas challenge.

    I see you have Ibotta on your sidebar. Have you had much luck with it? I made $60 in the year I've been with it. Sadly a lot of the stuff I buy doesn't earn a lot of credit, but every so often I get lucky.

    As far as some of your "clutter" is there any way you can recreate some things with it for gifts or even to sell? I"m just trying to be a little creative here.
