The Saved Quarter Challenge Week 4,Saved $13.00

The Saved Quarter Challenge Update #4, Saved $13.00 of my grocery budget. This will go into the savings account towards our emergency fund.

We sold 5 books on eBay this week. After fees for pay pal and eBay we net $33.90 before cost of books. Take away cost of books and we net $27.40.

From this of course you have the cost of supplies and gas to hunt and go to post office. Not much really made when you take everything in.

Key is to sell more expensive books but of course they are hard to find.

This money we made from eBay will go for ink, end of the month eBay store fee and is helping to reimburse the pocket book after taking oldest step son and his family out to lunch after church.

This was a special treat since his birthday was 2 weeks ago and we had not celebrated.

Not much added this week to savings but we are putting away $13.00 and that is something.

How are you doing with saving money.. My goal is to work harder on my Internet business and to make more money that way.

  1. It's $13 more in your emergency fund than you had before :)
    Good job!

  2. Every little bit helps, right?

    When I did Ebay before, I bought packing materials on Ebay and it was much cheaper than the office supply store. That may be worth checking out. Also, see if your library has a cheap book sale to stock up on stuff to sell that ships easily!
