The goal: to raise as much money as possible this month to pay down debt.

Total so far: $ 127.87

Ransacked my change jar and found $86.26 waiting there. I am going to take exactly $100 in small bills and change with me to the garage sale this Saturday, so it will be easy, at the end of the day, for me to figure out how much I made.

I also made up a BUNCH of lavender sachets yesterday, which I sell for $1 each, hoping that people will pick those up. I'm thinking of making up some other "quickie" and cheap items that people would buy just for the "ooh, but it is only a dollar" impulse. Also made up a 4th of July bracelet, but don't know if it will sell this month (or at all).

    Wow! You are doing great!

    Good luck on Saturday! The lavender sachet is a great idea!
    I think you should also ransack your garden for plants. Plants always sell well.

    I would so buy a sachet from you - we only have one lavander plant so far. But I'm buying the rooting compound to grow more I LOVE lavander.
    Good luck on your sale!
