Our first week of the kids and I selling on Trade Me has been a great success 34 sales totalling $492.00
That is more than 34 items from our home PLUS we have a boot load to drop off to the Sallies.
It really is rather addictive once you get your mind set to it.It's amazing how we look around the house and say - mm I'm ready to let that go. It is a bit of work listing on trade Me - but what items can be posted we try and sell on Trade me before we take to the Sallies. I struggle with some of the CHEEKY people on Trade Me (like E bay) who want to offer you nothing....
I often feel like replying like Mrs Brown..... but I haven't had elocution lessons so I say nothing.
If you have never watched Mrs Brown, we highly recommend it. The show is soo funny!
NB kids it is a R16....
Items that you list are still treasures - there is often a lot of emotion and memories in the items. I think that is why people find it really hard to let go of things. I know I find it hard to let go some of my books, the memories are wrapped up in our years of homeschooling. But it is nice to know other kids are going to get the joy too. As my kids are syaing to me as I ask shall we keep this book? They say no - educate another child (this has been especially for my books of women who have made a difference in the world - Rosa Parks, etc.. )
I'm buying Bonus Bonds with my funds.
Abbey is saving like crazy for books.
Stella the poodle...
Training for Stella is coming along really well. As you can see Stella loves the attention and is doing great.
To begin jumping through the hoop you start off in a door way (otherwise Stella went around the hoop. poodles are clever dogs!) The doorway stops her being able to go around the hoop instead of jumping through the hoop.
Treat training is a huge motivation and Stella looks forward to her special treats as well as the fuss re praise and attention.
Abbey might have to work on lady like jumping - LOL Stella thumps as she jumps and lands back on the ground - any ballet teachers watching will Tut Tut ... LOL
Minka and I have a game I pick up all her toys every morning and night and then she hides them for me to find again.
I tried to capture Leo in total bliss - relaxing on his back prodding in the air purring at full steam ahead with fur flying from Brent's rough grooming hands.
Don't yea just love Brent's foot wear.... Stella has a big interest in shoes and likes to take them from the back door. Thankfully she doesnt chew (Destroy) shoes like our Dobermanns and Mastiffs did.
