Saving, purging, donating, etc.

January 14th, 2010 at 03:29 pm

The biweekly savings transfer happened, just the required minimum of $25. I'm putting it toward the birthday fund.

Still waiting for my dad to cash my payment to him, LOL. I gently nudged him by letting him know I'll have another $1000 ready for him on payday (tomorrow), and he said he'd cash $2000 tomorrow or Saturday. Whew, finally!

We purged three items by selling them! A textbook (netted about $34), an indoor plant-growing lamp ($40) and our old laptop ($400). Sold the book on Half.com and the other two items via Craigslist.

We used the textbook profit to buy a new set of sheets to replace some really worn-out ones, since our textbooks fund is already at $200 and I'm confident we won't need more than that (we sell most of NT's books at the end of each semester and make back nearly all the money we spend). We took the grow lamp profit, plus $20 of pocket money, and are donating it to Doctors Without Borders to help with Haiti relief efforts. The laptop money was divvied up: I paid for our recent cable repair, put some into a future payment to my dad, finished paying off some holiday expenditures, and set aside $100 for general home improvement/decor (we've had a few minor needs come up recently).
