Spare money everywhere!

A few weeks ago, my boyfriend ordered a blender from Sear's. But over the past week, he decided he didn't want it anymore. And since it was still brand new, not opened; he tried to sell it on Ebay. Well, he got no hits. So before he left my mom gave him the $10 he wanted for it. Mainly because I wanted him to shut up about no one buying it; lol. But also because I knew I could get at least $15-$20 for it selling on Facebook. And I did! As I sold it for $18 . But - when my mom and I met with the person's son at Kmart's plaza; he handed me a twenty and said to keep the $2 for using gas to get there. . So my mom got her money back, and we made $10. Then on our way home we stopped at the grocery store to see if they had any more roast beefs on sale. They did! So again, instead of paying $25 we only paid $15. Which is still kind of high, but the only part of it that ever gets wasted, no matter how big it is, is the fat. And we don't buy them if they have much fat on them. So it's really the perfect price for us! My mom also found $20 in one of her sweater pockets, and we wrapped up $10 in quarters - which we didn't think we had enough to do. And about an hour ago, I came back on here and saw that we were paid! . Holy awesome-sauce! Thank you so much MyLot! Today has just been full of spare money! And I'm / we're so very grateful! Plus, we have another person looking to buy the bag of brand new babygirl clothes we got for free last year from using our Kmart points, this weekend. (Fingers crossed!) ** ** Ps: I'm here for fun, and interacting with people I get along with. Not debates and jerky comments. So if that's all you want to leave, don't comment. It waste both our time.

@Courtlynn Oh I was thinking something different. You have quarters your going to wrap. I thought you were changing a $10 bill for quarters. Ok I got it. I use the coin star and like you I spend it. I walk to the dollar tree and buy goods. It's time to begin saving up again.

@sharon6345 it cost money to do the coin machines, so we have always wrapped change and brought it to the banks, when we have over $10.

When it rains it pours, except in this instance, it was for the better. Hope the change keeps coming your way.

@Courtlynn Check the ground. I swear, this past week or so I have found at least 30 cents in change in parking lots. Not enough to call my broker...but into the change jar they all go.

Yay what a great day it must be with all that savings and earnings! I list things for sale on Facebook now and then as well it's easier then bothering with eBay and all the shipping fees etc.

Being serious is always what I am. I never say anything I don't mean, or act like I care about someone if I don't. but I don't play the debates, and bullying games.

Don't care for a good price, just have no reason for them and could use the extra money. But thanks.
