End of That Experiment...

It occurred to me the other day after I paid an extra $2 for signature confirmation for a plate that I sold on eBay for $2.99 making my total profit drop to about a buck and thirty cents, that maybe selling crap on eBay wasn't the way to go. Nobody has bid on any of the coins, and while I did sell the textbook, now PayPal is being difficult about "releasing" the money for it because they think I'm shady. Seriously? I've sold two things and both people are happy.

So whatever. It's easier to make ten bucks by NOT eating lunch out on any given day of the week than it is with all this listing and watching and packaging and shipping. So I think the big eBay experiment is officially over.

Which is fine. I checked and my raise does take effect this Friday, which is cool. We're in great shape financially, and I expect that by next Spring we'll have a flush savings account and a golf cart in the garage and a crew of people putting a new liner in the pool. And then maybe, just maybe, we can even plan a vacation.

So I'm going to keep saving, keep paying down the debt, and keep the belt as tight as possible for the next few months. We can do this, and it will be so awesome when we've finished. I can see the light at the end of the tunnel already, and I'm pretty sure it isn't a train (derp derp derp).
