Money Spent and Closing the Antique Booth

Money made today: $18
Money spent today: $31

Another day of more spending money than making money. Hoping sales pick up soon. Money spent today was breakfast with Dad and a trip to the pharmacy.

I went by the antique booth today and decided to give my move out notice.  Although I enjoy going, its just not profitable enough to continue spending my time there. I decided its time to move on to hopefully bigger and better things. I'm relieved actually.

I didn't list much today but I did declutter some. I have a small pile left in our bedroom that I have to go through which I'm excited about. I can't remember the last time my home felt like a house and not a thrift store. LOL!

I hope to list 5 items tomorrow and possibly sell some clothes for cash locally.

Have a great evening!

Money Spent and life update

Money made today - $0
Money spent today-  $125

I decided to start noting my money made and spent on each blog. I'm interested to see what is actually coming in versus going out. As you can see, I'm in the red for the day.We are in the process of preparing for a summer trip so I'm trying to keep spending  LOW.  Today's spending consisted of $115 for my doctor copay and a balance that was due from my last visit after insurance. The remaining $10 was for fresh flowers for my mom's gravesite. I try to take some at least once a month. She loved growing and receiving fresh flowers when she was alive. It was one of those things she hoped we would do for her when she passed.

Ebay was a bit slow at the beginning of the summer but sales have begun to pick up this month.

We took a trip at the beginning of summer and paid it completely with cash! Woohoo for us. For this next trip to see my inlaws, I'm trying really hard to budget with cash. Keeping fingers crossed!

Things at the antique booth are okay. I'm able to make my rent and then some but I'm considering closing up shop because its just not producing enough for me. I think my time would be better spent branching out on different social media platforms.

I'm off to continue listing before I make dinner. Hope everyone has a great evening!
