Day 22 of Money Challenge #1: $500 in 31 days – Half Way There

Okay, so work got a little crazy and no one wanted to buy my stuff on Craigslist. Let me take a moment to share how frustrating it is to have 4 people in an hour email that they are interested in buying your stuff only to have none of them follow up with when they’d be able to pick it up. 

Luckily, I worked two small shifts at my PRN job and was able to make an extra $76.79 this week (after taxes). That brings me up slightly past the halfway point. Which is invigorating! But I only have 9 days left to make almost $250. Frankly, I don’t think it will happen. But I’m going to try hard to recoup that money streak I had the first week I started this challenge. 

My plan? 

Scour the house for valuables I can part with. Pretty original, huh? I just need to find one or two things that can go on ebay for a fistful of dollars. My goal is to pick 4 things tomorrow evening that I believe will sell and list them in hopes of recovering the final $250. It’s the FINAL COUNTDOWN.

Yes, I expected you to watch the whole video. Why wouldn’t you? G.O.B. would be proud.
