Little Things, Big Money

After having my baby just a month ago, I've found myself surfing the net a bit more during her naps and tummy time. With my husband out of a job, I've had to make a little extra cash to buy extra wipes or just to put gas in the car when we both forgot to budget that in. Other moms also have the same problem. On a new website, Mamapedia, there are lots of questions on how they can earn a bit extra cash when craigslist doesn't work; like this one titled "Extra Money?"
I have some tips.
If you are a stay at home mom or not, everyone can have a garage/yard sale. It's fairly easy if you have kids because you can have their own "kid section" where they can snack or play and still be out of your way. You might have to check with your local government to see if you need to purchase a permit; in my area it's only $10 for three days.
Another tip is if you are crafty, try You don't have to pay their fee until you reach their fee limit. I haven't paid my fees in over 3 months! Things that are hand-made go for a lot more money on this website rather than if you posted it on ebay or craigslist.
If you do post things for sale on craigslist include a picture and a detailed discription on your website. And when people reply do not just use one sentence answers. Try to be a bit more professional. For example, include a signature; name, biz name, and contact information.
Good luck!

Ungrateful during Thanksgiving?

Hubby made me cry on Thanksgiving.... The usual share what you're thankful for, he just went all out talking about how we had one of the toughest years and we were apart from each other for six months and how much he missed us and it just sucked. Ohhhh, the waterfalls!! But yeah, it was the longest year ever. Speaking of Thanksgiving.... HAPPY THANKSGIVING! Reminds me of something that's been on my mind....

We just moved out of the valley and guess what?! The worst part moving to a new place was not the moving. Before we moved I scoped out our neighborhood, grocery stores, parks and I joined several mom groups. I knew negative Nancy’s were bound to share their troubles in Facebook groups but I’ve never heard so many complaints in one day.

I don’t know what it is but I don’t like when people complain. I just think to myself, “Did you really have to share that?” or about an easy solution to that complaint. There would have been a better way to spend your time than writing a n…
