Wylie Mom's Weekly Recap-Week 3

I was a bit surprised (not in a good way) about my numbers this week.

Grocery and Drug Savings - $94.94

eBay Sales - $123.85

Misc. Income, detailed below - $23.99

-$20.00 from a confidential panel hubby and I are on
-$3.99 back from Excedrin rebate (I'm not counting the savings/earnings from rebates until they are received)

Weekly Impact - $242.78
YTD Impact - $529.63

Grossed up that is $323.70 for the week or $8.09 an hour (at 40 hours a week).

I really need to get my eBay numbers up! I only listed 12 new items this week. So, this recap is actually turning out to be a good thing. It is the perfect tool to let me know where I stand today and where I need to be going tomorrow.

Also this week, I earned $10 in ECB for doing a quick 10 minute survey. This was not tracked yet, I'll do that when I actually receive the ECB which will be next month. I also earned some random points, etc. at MyPoints, Inbox Dollars, Swagbucks, etc. Look at those surveys and point programs daily!! I have mine all set up to go to one e-mail box. That way, when I have a few minutes, I have a "one stop" survey shop ready to go.

And, I went to Goodwill this week. I spent $22.16 and got 5 things for the kids (clothes) and 9 things for eBay. There is really no good way to track those savings, but when you buy name brand clothes (my son got yet another Janie and Jack sweater from Goodwill) for your kids at $.99 to $1.99 do the math. Savings $75-125......? But again, I won't plug those numbers in. Just something for you to think about.

Have a great week and remember to think of the financial impact of all you do!

Angie, I want to sign up for Swagbucks. Do you have a referral link so you can get some bucks from my sign up? Lemme know.
