Day 08 - Short-term goals for this month and why

I have very few...

go to the grocery store - because we like to eat and the pantry is getting very nekkid
work on Christmas cards - because I have two orders for 4 cards each
finish a couple of birthday cards - because I have an order for them

post a few things for sale on Craigslist - because they are taking up space and I need to sell them. I have a beautiful set of "vintage-style" brass cherub lamps.

I'm going to ask $75 for the pair. They're heavy and very much worth it. We've had them since 1996. The brass isn't the same exact color but I think that adds to their charm.

I have quite a few things for sale on eBay (you can search for soapymom2) and have even more things to put on Craigslist. Would like to sell our Christmas tree (no room for it and a wheelchair - wheelchair wins) and I'll get a small table-top one for in the dining room.

It's pre-lit and stand 7.5 feet tall.

I think that's about it for short-term goals for the rest of the month.

that is a nice tree! But we had a traumatic event last year with a tree so not sure where we are going to put one up this year; we might go back to the table top one we had two years ago. (We had to move Koda's crate to make room for the tree and he developed stress colitis as a result, who would have thought he would be so sensitive to where his crate was?)

those lamps are very nice looking!!

good luck with all your sales!!

Good luck with the sales, and hope you can get your grocery shopping done before all the holiday-shopping crowds hit!

I love selling on ebay too. Its amazing what I've been able to get for cleaning out my closet! I haven't tried craigslist & might give that one a try sometime. Happy selling!

Good luck with selling the items - love the lamps - but we're trying not to buy anything for our home in the hopes of downsizing soon.

You are rocking those sales Tee! The lamps are neat - I'd buy them but between people moving and passing away I am discovering I have a bit too much stuff [and it isn't stuff I can sell, y'know?]

Have a good week - it is always great talking to you.

Love the lamps. I have too much "stuff", too. I have been "nesting" and cleaning out drawers and closets and deciding to do without all the things cluttering up my life that I don't actually use. Craigslist, here I come!

Setting goals is a good thing - I feel so good when I accomplish them - even if it's a small thing!

Good luck with your sales!

I say add- Pamper yourself to the short list. You deserve it! Even if it means you have to hide in the potty with a book and some chocolates!

You can easily sell the lamps at that price. Beautiful ~
