Craigslist = Money + Decluttering

August 7th, 2013 at 11:54 pm

We finally sold our two carseats on Craigslist. F is in a booster, so no need for them. We got $75 for both (into savings! yay!).

I also got $40 for teaching at the gym. (Savings, also!)

I have more to put on Craigslist before we have our garage sale in two weeks.

Today we went to the pool, which has been a bargain in so many ways. You have to go a lot to justify the membership, and because we go a lot, F has become a great swimmer! I feel so much more confident about her in the pool. And it's starting to feel cooler (maybe it'll warm up again, but right now it's raining at least once a day, and that cools the air temp off a lot), so I'm really appreciating the last few days of summer and the pool (it closes on Labor Day).

Lots of free summer and fall activities coming up, though. I might go by Indian Market this year (we have a downtown office, so we can use our parking space) and there are all of the parades associated with Fiestas (September). Hope you're all enjoying the end of summer, too!

    Great job on the savings. What do you teach at the gym?

    I teach spinning - it's fun, and teaching forces me to do it once a week. Plus I get a free gym membership (so I end up doing a weightlifting class another day each week). And they pay me a random amount of money each month!

    Nice you have a pool to go to! I think learning to swim is so important for kids...glad you dd gets the opportunity! Smile

    It's a local outdoor pool, open only for the summer (Memorial Day to Labor Day) and you can join for the summer. They have deck chairs and barbeques, foosball and a pool table and a ping pong table. My daughter takes her evening shower there so we save on water at home. It is a pretty great place! I agree that learning to swim is so important for kids!
