Garage Sale FAIL..

Yeah, so ummm... Don't ever have a garage sale the weekend before Christmas, ummkay? Cuz I did that today and all I got was a whopping $45 bucks! :( GARAGESALE.FAIL I coulda slept in and lazed about today! It was my fault I was sooo gungho on having a sale.. BUT in my defense, I wanted to have one like 2 weeks ago but hubby worked the weekends the past two weeks so he said NO. (He has to be there for garage sale day because I call him eleventy million times to ask questions about his crap, HA!) so this was the only weekend he pushed his schedule around to be off.. Annnnnyway... I am $45 dollars richer so I can't be all mad. Plus I am having another decent week on eBay.. Nothing like that Care Bears weekend but I'm doing ok, I know I will make atleast $300 this weekend and I am gearing up for another serious listing fit, so hoping to make atleast another $300 next week. Gotta keep the momentum going! Nothing much to report on Operation: Babydreams 2012 just yet. My SIL & BIL are having their testing done next week and then it's just more waiting.. I paid $800 to the clinic so far for consults and testing, I definitely don't miss this part of the journey, LOL! But I know with each payment we make, we are getting closer to our baby!

In holiday news, I am SUCH A ROCK STAR, if I say so myself...AND I DO! I use this website called Swagbucks and it's a search and win type site, (I dont know how to explain it really) Anyway. instead of using say I use them to search for things and I win points every now and then for my searches. For every 450 search points I accrue, I can trade those for $5 in Gift Card credit! So I have been searching, getting points (sometimes they give out codes that are worth points) and doing my little thang... So I have been a member since last year probably and I have managed to squirrel away $290 dollars in ama.zon gif.t ca.rd credits! HUGE help for shop.pping this year! I didn't really have to spend much money at all thank GOD. So this definitely is helping keep our spending down and we are still able to add to the IVF Fund!

So that's all my little news for the weekend. This week I plan on couponing my heart out at the grocery store to get the items I need for Christmas Dinner and we are baking cookies, cake, brownies, pie, etc. getting ready for the eat-a-thon, LOL!

Til next time!
