Challenge money and time for a clock

August 10th, 2008 at 10:37 pm

I gave in and bought an alarm clock to replace the one fried last week. I was holding out, but in reality it was driving me mad not being able to see what time it was from my side of the bed so I went to Best Buy and bought one for $24. Nothing fancy beyond REALLY BIG numbers.

I sold one of my daughter's sweaters on eBay today and after shipping and fees I made $9.55, so that brings my challenge total to $11,080.43 and the Vespa fund to $31.28. (I think I might have enough to buy a spark plug for the Vespa now....)

I have a bunch of other eBay auctions coming to a close this week, though, so those amounts should change quickly.

    Congrats on the ebay success... I rarely have luck selling my clothes, even if they are pretty much new.

    I think I am going to give e-bay at try. I am always inspired by the money that SA blogger make on e-bay - maybe this will be the month I am inspired to action!

    Funny you should mention clocks - we have one working one, and in my quest for responsible children - each bedroom needs its own alarm clock. This is something I need to get soon - school starts on the 20th!

    Congratulations on the ebay. On the part about the clock why did you pay so much for a simple clock? There are clocks at Walmart that have HUGE numbers for under $20.

    Before I had my LASIK I really wanted something I could see from the bed as well and got an Atomix clock from Wally for $16. The numbers are HUGE and it sets itself automatically. Available in battery powered or plug in and they remember the time if you change the batteries or lose power for a few seconds. If not, all you have to do is put them near a window for 20 seconds and they get the time from the satellites.

    Did I mention they have HUGE numbers? :-)

    also a calendar, display the outside temperature and have alarms.
