Pre-relocation sell-off: March & April Results

May 1st, 2007 at 09:23 pm

Yawn!!! Nothing exciting to report. March & April results are:

Sales of some stuff on Half.com & Craigslist = $151.23

Interest = $23.07

Grand Total, Jan - April = $2,109.34

Perhaps I should say I THINK the results are ... Our computer had a meltdown and we had to run rescue disc and my spreadsheet was lost. I pulled numbers from what I had printed out and what I had recorded previously in this blog.

I have 4 more months to go to reach my goal of $3,000. Our garage sale is going to be in mid-May, so this should be a pretty big month; I'm hoping to get over the $2,500 mark.


***We chose our rental truck (Penske, 22% discount for AAA members who book on-line)***

***We decided on what to do for our farewell party. We played around with the whole range of options, from doing nothing to having a fancy catered affair for 100+ folks. We decided to host a dinner at a nice but moderately-priced restaurant, and we decided to pare the guest list down to only those who mean the very most to us. We'll invite around 40 w/ an expected turnout of around 30, and a budget of $600 (tho' we know it could go as high as $800 if everyone shows up, and we think that would be great)***

***I mailed out letters to my clients letting them know I would be closing my business.*** Frown

***I thought seriously about changing the name of this blog category from "Relocating to a lower cost part of the USA" to "Relocating to a fantastic part of the USA" because the more I learn about Austin the more excited I get about moving there! However, because we began this journey as a way to boost our finances long-term, and since this forum is about personal finance after all, I decided to keep the name the same, and I hope you Texans don't take offense!***

    My DD can't wait to return to living in Austin. She absolutely loves it there. We enjoyed our trips there, too. I hope you really like it.

    Texans are the friendliest people I have ever met.
    My parents lived near Austin for 13 years and loved it.
    It is a pretty area, with lots of fun things to do.
