I am still decluttering, and this week I put up 22 auctions on eBay and one item on Craigslist.  I sold two items on eBay, so after fees, I earned about $14.  That brings our grand total of money saved for our budget shortfall in February to $298.60.  (Hopefully there will be more sales this week so I won’t have to dip into savings too much in February.)

I also worked on more bartering.  I know that my landlord sometimes lets tenants mow the lawn for a discount in rent.  I approached her about that, and she said she would be glad to have us start mowing the lawn in April.  She will get back to me about the discount she is going to give.

Meanwhile, I am working on finding more writing jobs.  My husband also applied for an adjunct teaching position, but he hasn’t heard anything.  I am not counting on it because the class starts next weekend.
