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.

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 …

A Christmas Post

This year as Christmas has approached, I have found myself thinking of Mary. Being the mom of three boys, I think it’s easier for me to put myself in her place . . . and yet, who can imagine what that was really like?
I grew up in a very conservative group of believers who eschewed any focus on Mary in order to counteract what they saw as “worship” of Mary by Catholics and Episcopals and some other more liturgical beliefs.
But you can’t deny Mary had an experience that no one before her and no one after her will ever have. She had a unique relationship with Jesus. She was his mom.
Think about the facts as real life and not some story in a book you’ve heard a million times.
Mary was barely a teenager.She had never had sex.An angel appeared to her and told her she was having a baby.Mary is pregnant in a society that KILLS unwed mothers.Mary may have only barely known Joseph as their engagement was likely arranged . . . and he was probably much older. She had to go to this man and try to …

AMAZING Disney Fish Extender Gift Ideas

Being new to the Disney traveler's world meant being new to the FE world . . . and as we researched how we were going to participate in the FE that is a part of our cruise, we came across a lot of good FE ideas so I thought I would share them.

Disney Earrings - there are all kinds and many of them are one-of-a-kind but these are a novelty that I know I would love to get as an FE from someone else

Vintage Mickey Mouse Earrings - $3.99 MindieMay
Disney Character Clothes Pins - These would work well to close bags that hold other FE gifts or you could put a magnet on the back of each one and everyone could use them as note holders on the walls of their stateroom. Super cute - this vendor does a really good job with them.
Disney Character Clothes Pins-  OneMoreSunshine
Wave Phone Holders - If you need more information on what these are, you can see my previous post Top 5 Disney Necessities. Basically these are simple holders for a phone that Disney provides which is a cross between a cell p…
