Since it's the last day of the month, it's time for an update on this August challenge. You might remember that I started with a plan of purging 30 things in 30 days. Because I was more determined (and physically capable!) than I thought I would, I doubled my goal as I mentioned here. I was also pretty successful with selling stuff, so I made another goal to make at least $100 or, even better, to have enough to buy a new car seat without spending any money above what I got from selling.
I have to say, I kind of cheated this week... This week was so crazy busy and it literally flew by. But since I only had to find 4 things to reach my goal, I just rummaged around the house challenging every little thing we might or might not need. It was quite easy to reach my goal, actually... I also made $105 total from sales. Should've made more but I didn't list anything new this week because I was busy and exhausted. And we got a car seat - this one from Walmart:
It has good reviews and matches the one we got from a friend (not a priority but still nice). It ended up being $106.83 with taxes so I was just slightly short but since I will be taking advantage of a $25 rebate, it will end up being a stellar deal, so I'm very happy. I really enjoyed challenging myself this month and our house is a lot more organized right now. There is still plenty to declutter but it will take a little more time.
And how did you do with the challenge?? I plan on slowing down a bit in September but I will keep (unofficially) going. What about you?
