Not wasting my time with Half.com/amazon.
Thanks for everyones tips on where to sell stuff without paying fees. However, most of my books are only going for $1.00 or less. I don't feel it is worth my time. Besides, it could be months before they are sold and we need to get this stuff out of our house. I have some curriculum stuff that I will sell when the boys are finished, but most of it will just go to our upcoming yard sale. We are planning to have a huge neighborhood sale in May. I honestly can't wait for this sale! I hate clutter and my corner in my basement houseing yard sale stuff is nothing but clutter!
On another note. I am happy to report that our first project in our basement is complete. We built a network closet. It houses our main household computer, battery back up, and office files. We dry-walled, painted, put up shelves, put in a zillion outlets (all hooked up to a special battery to handle a possible surge), and put down armstrong stick tile flooring. We still need to put up a ceiling, but we will wait until the other rooms are completed to allow for easier access to the wires. I took video, but I plan to show that at the end. A simple before before and after video.
The best part is---we have done all of this without using any credt cards! We are still credit card free! I am really proud of this little fact! We are really pacing out the projects and using our cash flow to pay for it.
Last night was another terrible night with kids waking up other kids...all this does is confirm how helpful kids having their own rooms will be! I really can't wait!
