February 6th, 2010

Kinnick LOVES music (silly songs). She drives us crazy begging us to start the CD player. So, nurse Marci put a piece of tape on the [start] button, and showed Kinnick how to find the button with tape. Now, we have music ALL day long. Kinnick just climbs up the cart and presses the button.

We finally got a "Flip". This is a mini camcorder. It records 2 hours of video and the videos can be uploaded to the computer. So, as soon as I figure it out, I'll post some live action of Kinnick and Carver. I can hardly wait. I get so excited over these little purchases. Money has been pretty tight since Bob got laid off last year and started a new job (doing the same thing), but making significantly less then before. Gotta love the economy. Anyway, Bob got some money from Subura last month for having one of the top sales numbers for the month. So, that helped pay for the "Flip" and a TV mount in the basement. We've had a flat screen TV in our storage room for over a year. We bought it to go in our bar. We just never had the money for a mount. The rest of the money went into our vacation pot. We finally got enough money saved for our vacation next month. I sell all of our baby stuff on craigslist after the kids outgrow them. For example, we are now selling Kinnick and Carver's Peg Perego Duette SW twin stroller. We paid over $800 for it and I'm selling it for $400. It still looks brand new. So, if you know anyone looking for one, let them know I have one for sale.

Let me know how you do on Craigslist. I haven't have very good luck. I have had EXCELLENT luck on Amazon though. However, you can't sell the big things on there. But, if you have little things to get rid off, Amazon is great. I have sold tons of our old boxed set movies and some smaller toys on there. Good luck selling mama!

Yeah! I LOVE selling things on craigslist! We just did a huge sale before Christmas because of money and man I sold everything within 3 days! Saved us a ton! For our bigger ticket items I sold on ebay and then over charged for shipping to make sure I came out ok. Worked like a charm! We sold our DVD collect for over 1000 bucks PLUS 150 to ship! People will buy anything! I have also clipped coupons and sold them to others needing them...crazy what people will pay for! Good luck!

I can't think of anything I need. I am trying to decide if I want to sell our double stroller...can't decide. Can't wait to talk with ya next week!
