Early Update

One of my new year's resolutions was to sell some things each month and use that money to pay down debt.

First thing I sold was my old Xbox 360 on ebay for $191! I was pretty excited about getting that much for it. I included all of my games, but I thought I would maybe get $120. So, that was a nice surprise.

I also sold some of these old paver stones we had dug up in our backyard. I sold 20 of those for $70.

We had this old Sony TV in our garage that was just collecting dust. I was able to sell that for $50 to a college student after his was stolen. I felt good about that sell.

Lastly, and the most exciting, I won my fantasy football league! $120! Woo-hoo!

All together, that is $431 to pay down some debt with! That will put a pretty good dent in one of our loans! I am extremely excited about that.

I hope to be able to do this more often. If you guys have any other ideas on how to make some quick cash, please let me know! I am always looking for different things to do to make some easy money.


  1. I just stumbled on your blog, I also blog about getting out of debt. I made a list of some ways to make some cash on the side:
    If you're handy, you could browse craigslist and your local freecycle for free or cheap items that you could spruce up and sell!

    1. That is a great idea! Thank you for posting your website. We will definitely be following your updates.
