Challenges Week 26 & First Ever EBay Buy!

July 20th, 2015 at 11:45 am

Week 26 of the challenges hasn't been too too bad. We did lots of little things that weren't really that expensive. I bought more food this week in anticipation of B's smaller paycheck next week - tried to buy bigger staples, or slightly more of them, so that there will be less food to buy in the grocery shopping. I accidentally bought too much meat, so it looks like I may only have to buy one meat item next week. This is great, because meat is the most expensive item.

On Friday I treated myself a little. My sister's birthday is today and she wanted a body shop body butter pack. They had a special where if you spend more than $30, you can get an item half price. Her gift pack was $36, so I did something I rarely do and gave into a sale item that I didn't plan to buy in the first place. I got a lovely body butter in the blueberry fragrance - it is sooo nice. Worth $23, paid $12.

Then later on, on Friday night I thought about the new handbag I want to buy before B's birthday party. I wanted a new handbag, but because this is a not needed item and really much much more of a want, I put a $20 limit on the bag and bought it from EBay. This is the first time I have ever bought off EBay so I'm really hoping to get the bag at the end of the week with no problems. Cross your fingers for me! The bag was a good brand, a black Jag bag, for $20 and free postage (woohoo). It looks really nice and didn't break the bank either Smile

    Good luck on the ebay purchase - i haven't bought from there in a few years but never had a problem.

    We're also finally seeing some of the fabulous credit card enticements that many of the US SAers use for bonus money, and while researching one last week i picked up a tip - if you do purchase more from ebay - go through the velocity estore http://estore.velocityfrequentflyer.com/ to pick up velocity points per dollar spent.

    My first eBay purchased arrived broken (it was glass and not packaged well), I'm sure your will go fine!

    I've never had an issue with an eBay purchase --- well, one. I bought a special pan for my grandma and it came without the handle. I contacted the seller, and they sent the missing piece right away.
