Figuring things out...

I'm sitting here trying to figure out how to add tabs and progress bars to my blog.

Sad thing is, I work in I.T.  I've been working in I.T for 12 years.  I worked as a Software Developer for 6 of those years.  And yet, I'm struggling to update my blog with tabs and progress bars.  Odd.

Ending up spending money yesterday to pick up a few groceries, baby wipes and tissue.  I really need to be more diligent with tracking my expenses.  Yesterday I had $40 cash in my wallet, today all that's left is a handful of change.

I've started going through bins of clothes my kids have grown out of.  I've separated a bin with clothes I hope to sell to a used children's clothing store.  Another bin is full of clothes I hope to sell at my garage sale (although I do not know when this will happen).  I'm sure DH is not impressed with bins stacked up in our closet.  I promise I'll get rid of them.

I've managed to make about $50 on eBay this month.  Not a huge amount but I'm happy because it's money in my pocket and less clutter in my closet.  Yay!

I've got a progress bar now! I'll have to figure out how to make things pretty.


  1. Hi - looking forward to following your blog! Welcome to the PF blogosphere!

    Just wondering if your eBay money came from selling kids' clothes. I need to go through some of my stuff but I can't figure out if adult clothes are even worth listing.

  2. Thanks Andrea for the welcome! On eBay, I'm actually selling my clothing and shoes. I was surprised that the items actually sold so that is keeping me motivated to continue to post more items. For kids' clothes, my plan is to sell them to a used children's clothing store.
