Cash for Stuff, Week #1

We stopped using our microwave two years ago, and it's been sitting in a closet ever since.

SOLD: 1 microwave = $20, cash

SOLD: 1 computer, built by husband out of spare parts = $20

SOLD: 1 gigantic bag of clothes and some toys to a local second hand store = $65

RETURNED: A "gift" still in-package that we didn't need = $171.18 ToysRUs GC (WOW!)

RETURNED: Dog harness from Target, purchased a few months ago and never worked properly = $7.89, Target GC

End of week Total Gain = $304.07

Cash spent during week #1 = $15.53

END RESULT for week #1 (304.07 - 15.53) = $288.54 to the positive
