More book sales

March 21st, 2006 at 12:45 pm

Sold two more yesterday, took them to post office and paid $4.14 postage. Sold two more today, but won't take them till tomorrow. I'm glad I live so close to the post office. It's about a 1/2 mile from my house, I drive now, but when the weather is nicer I think I'll start walking for the exercise. There's a giant booksale in Princeton tomorrow. It's about a half hour from where I live. It's supposed to have 100,00 used books for sale. I'm excited yet a little scared I'll be overwhelmed by so many books. Most of the sales I've gone to so far have been much smaller. I'm gonna take $100 of my challenge money and build up my inventory of books. I don't know how much I'll spend before my brain short circuits, or my arms give out. I only have 33 books left from the past two sales I went to, so Im hoping to come home with lots of books.

Taxes and GC

March 17th, 2006 at 11:15 am

Got my taxes done and sent out. I'll be getting $1,381. back from federal and $12 back from state. Plan on using 1/3 refund towards credit reduction, 1/3 towards paint and trim for living room project, and 1/3 towards weekend trip to AC NJ. I had won a two night stay at any Hampton hotel, so I'll just need money for food, and entertainment.
Speaking of winnings, I won a total of 65 2 liter bottles of Coke in the coke Olympics game.
Got a coupon in mail for a free $25 GC from CVS if you transfer a prescription. I get my prescriptions filled across the street from CVS at Walmart. I'll walk across the street for $25. I havew a medication that needs to be refilled so I'm off to CVS now.

Finally a book sale

March 14th, 2006 at 03:57 pm

Amazon.com did some maintenance updates so very few of the book sellers made any sales over the weekend. I was not one of the lucky few who had some sales, but it looks like things are back to normal. I finally sold a book yesterday and mailed it out today for $1.97 postage. I also sold one today but didn't mail it yet. A deposit of $10.93 was made to my account for last week's sales.

Other Stuff

It's been really nice out here, so I've been working in the garden. Added some new compost, and planted snow peas. Going to go out and build some trellies so the snow peas have something to climb up. The next Oprah debt show is on in one hour so I better get to work.
