Money Making Strategy #4

I told ya’ll this morning that I would be working hard at registering items for consignment this week. Every year I earn more than a thousand dollars just by consigning the extra clothes and toys we have around our house. This year we’ll be expanding to include items that have been left over from our Clean It Out sales, as well.

This is an easy thing that ANYONE can do to save/make money.

Let’s use the upcoming Rhea Lana sale in SW DFW as an example.

#1 - Registration is open right now. You just go to this page and fill out the form.

#2 – Then collect all of the items you are ready to part with and also as many of these supplies as you have around – hangers, safety pins, white hanging sale tags.

Tomorrow you can actually attend a beginner’s information class at Pirate Coffee Company tonight from 7 p.m. to 8 p.m. Not only will they cover all the basics during this hour, but from 5 p.m. to 8 p.m. you can also purchase supplies (100 tags for $1.50 and $.20 for each hanger) or pick up marketing materials to hand out in order to publicize the sale.

#3 – You enter the items you are selling into the computer and safety pin a white tag on to the item. It may be easiest to number the tag in order to keep everything in order.

#4 – Between September 11 – 13, you will drop your items off at the Aristide Event Center, 570 N. Walnut Creek Dr., Mansfield, TX, 76063.

#5 – If you sell, you are able to shop early. If you work an few hours to help at the sale, you will be able to shop even earlier. This is one of the best advantages. The earlier you are able to shop, the better deals you will find. Pre-shopping will take place from 4 – 9 p.m. on Tuesday, September 13.

#6 – The actual Rhea Lana consignment sale will run from September 14 and 15.

#7 – I usually do the majority of my shopping at the half-price sale. The workers are able to shop first at 5:30 p.m. on September 15th and the sale continues on until Saturday, September 17th.

#8 – You pick up any of the items that have not sold and you want returned on Saturday, September 17 from 5 to 7 p.m.

Then you get your check and that’s exciting!

You can save hundreds and possibly thousands of dollars by purchasing your children’s clothing and toys from consignment sales.

You can make as much or more by selling what your children are done with. I would challenge you to try it and see how well it will work for you.

MD Anderson Arrival - Waiting to See Doctor

Joey and I drove to Houston yesterday . . . after making sure our kids and animals were all taken care of, which is always a bigger deal than I anticipate it being. It's been a long time since Joey and I have had the chance to "get away" just the two of us, so even with the reason for the trip, it was nice to drive and chat and stop at Collin Street Bakery and Cooper Farms store and eat at Cracker Barrel as if we were on a vacation.

If you've ever taken an anti-anxiety medication, you know the strange feeling of knowing academically that the facts should be upsetting to you, but feeling inexplicably calm in the face of those still upsetting facts. It isn't truly inexplicable, though, as you took a medication that is formulated to do that very thing. However, recently I have found myself experiencing this very same feeling without any medication, and I am confident that it is the definition of "peace that passes understanding."

I will say waking up in a …

Extravagantly . . . A Personal Post

There haven't been many personal posts from me in quite some time. I find I can't schedule them; I simply have to wait until it comes pouring from my emotions through my brain and into my fingertips.

Apparently today, I have something to say.

I've been reading a really challenging book with an unusual title. Brace yourself - it'sGod and Boobs by Angie Schuller-Wyatt. Yep, Schuller, as in Robert Schuller of the Crystal Cathedral. It's written by his granddaughter. I was a little wary when I received a copy to review. Honestly I was afraid it was going to be irreverent at best and unbiblical at worst. But I haven't found that to be true. In fact, I've been very surprised to find it challenging and encouraging of me as a believer and as a woman - fully and completely, a woman.

One of the things that it mentioned is how often we misinterpret the verse "Guard your heart for out of it are all the issues of life." Growing up this verse was used regularly …

I Cried the First Time I Watched My Son Wrestle

My middle son, Colt, told me not too long ago that he wanted to wrestle. We are a sports family, but wrestling has never been one of those sports. AND this child is on the spectrum . . . now, all that really means for him is that he's not going to pick up on any social hints you drop, he's incredibly literal, and he's finicky about sensations. Yes, the child who is finicky about sensations told me he wanted to wrestle - where people are constantly touching you and holding you down and forcing your body into positions you don't want it to be in. But I have always determined that I would not hold my children back by forcing artificial boundaries on them that they don't have for themselves - so if the boy wanted to wrestle, we were going to let him try it out.

A couple of weekends ago, we went to his first wrestling tournament. I was so naive. We were supposed to be there at 9 am, and, in all seriousness, I made plans for 11 am. I thought we would walk in, he would h…
