I mentioned here that I am working on my Masters Degree in Social Work. I have been in a part time program for the past two years and next year I have to go full time. Full time school means that I will have to leave my secure full time job, a scary thing in this economy. I am fearful of living on one income and fearful of not being able to find a job upon graduation, but in my heart of hearts I know that God doesnt give us a spirit of fear but of a sound mind and that he will guide us along this process. I belive that he wouldnt have allowed me to gain acceptance in school and manage to juggle all my responsibilites thus far to quit. I am forging ahead and beleivng that in the end a year of sacrifice will be worth it.
I recently found a great blog My Dear Trash. She supplements her hubby's income by selling things on ebay and craigslist that she buys from yardsales, thrift stores, etc..Some weeks she has made $500 in sales. I am going to try this out and see what happens especially since I love to yardsale and thrift shop. I listed some of my personal items last week and so far have made over $20, a long way from $500, but its twenty more than I had. Curious to see what I have listed, you can check it out here.
How do you make extra money? Any ebay/craigslist tips you want to share?
