Wylie Mom's Weekly Recap - Week 26

Wow, it's hard to believe that 2009 is already half over! As far as last week's tracking it was a slow financial week, but a very action packed week personally (son's birthday and family visiting!). Here are the numbers:

Savings - $55.52

- saved $12.68 at Walmart (didn't was boring)
- saved $2.89 at Sonic (free Wacky Pack printable coupon from Sonic Birthday Club)
- saved $24.95 at Albertsons
- saved $10 at Party City ($10/30 Party City coupon)
- saved $5.00 with Papa Murphy coupon (I got 2 family sized "take and bake" pizzas & some cheese bread for my son's birthday feed 14 people for $21)

eBay Sales - $122.45

Misc. Income - $16.99

-$2.00 cash at Half Price Books (I took in 8 magaiznes, that I got for free)
-$5.00 from Synovate Research (surveys and product trials...e-mail me for a referal)
-$9.99 rebate from Centrum

Weekly Impact - $194.96
Yearly Impact - $9,284.26

I'm happy (and thankful) about the eBay sales. A total of $122.45 in sales and only $9.99 was made at auction (one item!!) and $112.46 was from my store (9 items!!).

My favorite item that sold was this cool Pottery Barn plate. I found 4 of them at a garage sale a few weeks back and paid $1 a piece. I listed 2 of them auction style first, starting at $9.99 and they went unsold after 7 days. So I moved all 4 of them to my store and priced them at $13.97. They all four sold, 12 days later ($55.88)!! I paid $7.44 to eBay ($.70 original auction listing fees, $.03 store listing fee and $6.71 final value fee) and $2.27 to PayPal. So, $55.88 minus $4 for the plates minus $9.71 in fees equals $41.91 profit. I cleared $10.47 per plate, and my goal is $10 per item. I paid 7% in cost of goods sold and 18% in expenses and made 75% in profit. Very nice!

Have a great week!!
