Wylie Mom's Weekly Recap-Week 14

Here's my weekly recap of my savings and income (random $ and eBay sales) from last week.

Savings - $110.46

- $19.46 at CVS and $1.75 at Target and $1.00 at Redbox
- $30.00 at Texas Roadhouse with Gift Certificates (we only had to pay $1 and the tip!)
- $15.00 at Kohl's (hubby lost the receipt, so that's my estimate rounded)
- $42.25 at Kroger

eBay Sales - $286.29 -$4.99 unpaid item = $281.30

Misc. Income - $2.00

- $1.00 in Extra Care Bucks printed for my Winter spending
- $1.00 from Dollar Surveys

Weekly Impact - $393.76
Yearly Impact - $5,526.17

My P&G coupon book, with $120 in coupons finally came. Yay! I also received a few samples and requested more samples as well. As far as eBay, I only listed 14 new items. Ugh!! My goal was 30. But, here's why. Easter is next weekend. I didn't want any auctions ending Friday through Monday of next week, since people won't be sitting on the computer shopping. That all said, my goal will only be 15 auctions for this next week. Since I don't want to list until Tuesday, but will be out of town Friday. Sales wise, I had a great week. Listing more than 30 items a week has been paying off.

As far as eBay, I thought I'd add a new feature to the weekly recap. I thought I'd share my favorite sale from the past week. It could have been a good money maker, something totally weird that actually sold, something I got for free, etc. So, here's my favorite item from last week:

Dish Satellite Receiver - We dug this out of the attic a couple of weeks ago (we've been doing lots of cleaning and organizing the past few weeks). I almost tossed it in the Goodwill pile. Good thing I didn't, I made $20.49 on it.
