Saving for Upgrades

My friends think I am crazy. My family knows I'm crazy. But until I can find a job I will be knee deep in Lego's! Spending my days and nights assembling Lego's and searching for that one piece. It's my way to earn money for my Jeep parts.

I struck a deal with my kids. We are selling the bins and bins of their Lego's. When I started breaking out the bins I realized there is more in my house I can get rid off and make a little cash. It all fits into my life simple and declutter mindset. So it's a double benefit. Make money to buy Jeep parts to make me happy and declutter my home and make my whole family happy! You might not think that would make a whole family happy but in the subconscious mind it's a big stress reliever for the whole family once you get rid of the clutter. 

So now my dining room and guest bedroom have turned into Lego Central. I have now gotten into a rythmn and have begun listing my auctions on eBay.

I haven't even made a dent in the thousands of Legos.  So far I've made $200 to put into my Jeep Parts fund! That's even after I give my kids their cut. This is also a great learning opportunity for my kids and a way for them to save for something special they want. 

If you want to check out my auctions here's the link!

In the meantime it's back to my new job -- at least until I can find a real job. Which could be a while. It's tough out their especially for a stay at home mom who has been out of the workforce for 15 years. Plus, I have no interest in getting back into my old career of TV news. So now a question for myself -- what do I want to do? Maybe I could sell Jeeps! Or I could work at the Lego store.
