Tenant for my new condo

I do have a tenant for my condo.  Yeah.  So, now I am not bleeding $ every month.

My tenant is a professional gambler.  Only in Las Vegas do you get this type of character.  But he paid the deposit and the rent so I can't complain.

eBay Money

I listed a few books and dvd's on eBay.  One of my books sold.  I purchased it for $0.50 and sold it for $19 + postage.  I thought that was a nice profit.

I also purchased some used children's dvd's.  One of them sold 20 minutes after I listed it.  I purchased the DVD for $0.25 and sold it for $2.00 + postage.  So it wasn't a ton of $, but it was a easy transaction.

I listed the products using my smartphone.  However, when they sold I had to hop on my laptop and print out postage.  For packing materials I used old boxes and envelopes purchased a long time ago in bulk.

By selling online people can turn junk into $.

Free lunch via Mystery Shopping

I snagged a free lunch - chicken club sandwich and a side via mystery shopping.  I love free food, and the couple of bucks I get for filling out the survey.


Getting Free $ to pay off my credit card bill

After my condo remodel I needed to pay off my credit card.  However, I had a cash flow shortage.

Fortunately, or unfortunately depending on how you want to view it I had used my AMEX to charge my remodel expenses in Las Vegas.  I was glumly reviewing my credit card statement online when I realized I had accumulated reward dollars.  I had an ahha moment.

I clicked on my reward dollars and was able to translate them into a $100 credit on my AMEX!!!

How cool was that?

Thank you American Express!
