Misc. Income, detailed below - $40.59

- $.53 BigCrumbs
- $32.50 check from confidential panel (hubby and I both)
- $3.75 Caregivers Marketplace rebate

Weekly Impact - $256.38
Yearly Impact - $6038.52

It was not a huge week, but I'm not feeling too bad. Last weekend was Easter and I was out of town. Not to mention I had very few auctions ending because of that same reason. I did sell 6 store items. I'm very thankful for my store sales!! I listed 31 new items last week and will aim for 35 this week.

As far as something fun I sold, here's a cute Tommy Hilfiger dress that went for $9.97, the week before last. Another store sale. I bought this dress last year sometime at Once Upon A Child for about $5 or $6. I remember it being on sale and I got a few other things and used a $5/$25 coupon. Anyway, my daughter wore this dress a lot last year, and I still turned a profit on it! I will admit, I do spend a bit of time on the kid's laundry, I wash inside out in cold and hang to dry. And it wasn't a huge profit, but you can shop smart for kids clothes!!

For example: I'd rather spend $20 on a new Gymboree outfit ($15-20 considering a good sale at Gymboree!) and sell it later on eBay for $10 than get a new outfit at Target for $10 that has no resell value after it's worn. Both outfits "cost" $10, but why not get the better quality (and way cuter!!) item....? Just another crazy way I look at things, using the power of eBay. :)

Have a great week!
