Wylie Mom's Weekly Recap - Week 23

Last week shaped up pretty good thanks to a nice eBay week. Since my stock piles are so full, I'm not as shopping much these days, so no drug store trips last week.

Savings - $148.28

- $43.54 at Target and $55.27 at Albertson's
- $20.00 cut hubby's hair at home
- $29.47 (my last 2 Bzz kits, Neutrogena and Off)

eBay Sales - $318.51

Misc. Income - $9.00 from Survey Spot (read my survey post here)

Weekly Impact - $475.79
Yearly Impact - $8,323.12

Now that I'm looking at the was a great week! Woot woot! If I "gross up" my weekly figure to account for gas, taxes, etc. (to pretend I worked outside of the home for this $$) I would have had to made $634.38 or $15.85 an hour at 40 hours a week. Not bad for staying home with my kiddos, is it?

My favorite item from last week is still pending, but in it's place I have my SUPER FAVORITE eBay item of all time to share! McDonald's Happy Meal toys. Yup, you read that right, Happy Meal toys! I list them straight to the store for $4.97, new in package. That means they are unopened/still in the sealed plastic. I've been selling a few every month for a while now, but this weekend, I sold 19 toys to one person!! That was almost $95!! I only have a few left, and sold another last night. Here's what I figure, after paying for the Happy Meal (prices vary per market and Happy Meal type), eBay fees and PayPal fees I break even (a few cents to no profit). But, I did feed my kids (and usually myself) and let them play with some kiddos. So, basically I use McDonald's for a "FREE" lunch and entertainment in rainy weather.

Yes.....I'm crazy! Have a great week! :)
