Shake Your Money Maker

I know that my sister Gabi has only been gone for 13 days, 18 hours, 13 minutes and 2 seconds, but I miss her :(  So naturally I want to go to USD Family Weekend in October. One problem...

$$$  MONEY  $$$

I don't have enough, and I need some. So naturally I am doing what any sane person would do, selling my possessions. Let me explain, I won't be having my kids wearing the same outfit everyday, but we have lived with my parents for 3 years. Milton says we will be out by the end of the year, but I am not holding my breath, so I am selling all the things we have had in boxes for over 3 years. I am having a virtual garage sale on Craigslist. I am selling girl clothes, newborn- 6 months, kitchen stuff (pots, pans, etc.), a Coach purse, books, blu-rays, a blu-ray player. You get the point, I will let you know how much $ I can raise, I need about $700 for us to go to San Diego and I FULLY intend to raise that in the next 4 weeks, wish me luck! Do you have any ideas for quick money making? No I will NOT be shaking my money maker, that is simply a title people. Get those minds out of the gutter ;) 

Question of the Day: Do you want to donate to my cause?Truly kidding, but do you have any suggestions?


  1. Good luck! I hope you are able to come up with the $ needed for your trip!

  2. i would love to help with your cause! :) you have a link?

  3. yea that's what I was about to ask-- Do you have a link to CL? As far as idea-- do you have any talents? Baking,crafting, cleaning ect.-- if so, play off that.

    Good luck girlie and I processed my ad through PF

    For some reason I can't comment using my name so I have to use my hubby's blog

  4. We have solds LOTS of stuff through craigslist when we downsized houses. It's all about the appearance of the ad and the price!! We've never tried Ebay, but I know clothing lots are BIG on there -- so maybe selling the clothes that route might be good. You can do it! The key to selling in craigslist is posting a handful of times a day so your post stays at the top. So I do it before Kiki wakes up, at nap time, and right after bedtime. Hope that helps!!

    1. Good ideas! I didn't know you could post multiple times in one day, I am going to try it for sure :)
