    Yesterday I had our end of year cash back bonus applied to our credit cards. Got $437.44.

    I have 5 ebay auctions ending today. Only one has a bid so far, but it's going for $69.

    Total so far:
    $261.21 from FSA
    $5.73 from Half.com (net profit after fees and shipping costs)
    $10.54 from eBay (net profit after fees and shipping)
    $437.44 from credit card cash back

    = $714.92 Grand Total

    I used e-bates for the first time last month. I used it rather cautiously because I was afraid that it was a scam. However, in the mail yesterday came a check to cover my mom's birthday present and one of her Christmas presents. That was a very nice surprise and much needed too.

    BTW, congratulations Telephus 44 on being with child. I know that you and your dh have been devoting this year to conceiving a child and I am so happy to hear that your wish came true. Big brother will be happy to have a sibling I am sure. Do you know if the baby is a girl or a boy?

    Yes, our son is very happy that he's going to be a big brother. We've decided that we're not going to find out the gender, and keep it a surprise.

    Thanks for the reminder about eBates. I've never used them, but I do use Mr. Rebates (same idea, different site). I'm going to check and see if I have enough in my account to cash out.

    Got another $55 from my FSA. Also a $500 Christmas bonus from work and a $25 rebate check I had forgotten about. Signed up for a Serve account (like Paypal sort of? It's an Amex thing) and now have a card with $20 on it. I'm adding these below to my running total


    These are the items I'm working on but not counting yet since they aren't received:

    I also followed up on a monitor rebate I sent in for in October (the rebate check reminded me) and it was received and approved. Still waiting for the $400 check from the hospital. Also signed up for the "$20 prepaid MC when you spent $200 online with your MC" challenge and qualified.


    So far:
    $316.21 from FSA
    $5.73 from Half.com (net profit after fees and shipping costs)
    $130.82 from eBay (net profit after fees and shipping costs)
    $437.44 from credit card cash back
    $25.00 in rebates
    $500 in bonus
    $20 from Serve

    = $1435.20 Grand Total

    Ive never tracked found money, and I am going to start next month. I am starting the New Year by pet sitting for a customer which will bring in a little extra cash, I can also work more when I want which is a good thing.

    Ebay is a definite for next year, I have got to declutter and some of the stuff is new, or like new. I use to make between $500-1000 per month from ebay and not sure why I stopped. I also want to put up a Etsy site for the knitted things like pan handle sweaters and swiffer covers that I make in my spare time.

    Is there a thread where members post their ebay listings? Just thinking that some may list things that others would be interested in.

    Well low and behold, I found money today. A $100 bill in my dresser drawer. This may just have to go on the car loan to get it paid down. Can't think of anything else I need it for.

    Yahoo !!!
