I’m Awesome!

Spring Break 2009 is officially here!  And this is how I’m feeling…

No joke.  I’ve been in bed for two days.  However, I did push through one day of garage sale-ing in order to sell this.

My neighbor garage sale guru told me to sell it for $75.00.  So, I did.  Thirty minutes later, I sold it for $60.00.  Let me break this down for you with bullets.  I do well with bullets.

  • Bought the table and four chairs for $50.00
  • Kept two barstools for myself
  • Sold the remaining barstools and table for $60.00
  • Made a profit of two barstools and $10.00!

As my husband walked back from loading the table into the buyer’s car, he gave me a high five and said, “You’re awesome.”

Yes, Dear.  Yes, I am.

That's so great about the profit you made on the bar stools!

I'm sorry you're under the weather! I hope it clears up soon so you can enjoy your spring break.

Too cool Chris - that is some great dealing you had going! I buy a lot of Lauren's clothes on ebay and I am always thrilled when I make a profit back selling them again when she is done - suckas!!! Sorry to hear you are feeling cruddy. I have been all week also. Go put on your cozy jammies, your favorite argyles and snuggle up. Garage sale over, now you can relax!

You are, in fact, awesome.

Yes, you are awesome! Good job!

Natalie said...

Isn't that the bestest feeling??!! (making a profit and getting a high-five from hubby).

I would have paid $60 for that set! It's exactly what I'm looking for for our sunroom!

I once bought a Step 2 outdoor set at a yardsale for $21. We used it for 3 years, my sister used it for 2 years and then I sold it on Craigslist for $300!! I made a profit of $279 after 5 years of use and my hubster was more than pleased!

Nancy said...

You are hilarious! I always look forward to reading (and seeing) something new from you. I also enjoy seeing your dog popping up here and there...it's kind of like throwing in a little "Where's Waldo?" :) I hope you feel better soon enough to enjoy your spring break. I'm also a teacher, but our spring break doesn't start until Good Friday...can't get here soon enough!

Farmgirl Paints said...

Rhoda @ Southern Hospitality said...

Hey, Chris, that is certainly awesome! Great deal! I love your new stools. I did exactly the same thing. Bought a small dining table and 5 chairs for $50 at a yardsale. Used the table for my hubby's office desk (perfection!). Sold the 5 chairs on Craigslist for $25 (they were pretty beat up), so his desk was a $25 deal. I didn't make money, but it was a good deal all the same!

Susie from Bienvenue said...

Now that's the way to shop girlfriend! Get what you want and make some mola while your at it! Hope your better real soon. Ugh..on your spring break. Take care and get some rest..

Jennie said...

love the table and love that you made a profit....oh, and you rock too!!!!

Vivienne said...

Love it, love it.
That's the best feeling to make money while shopping! (Will hopefully make you feel better)

Before Linens-N-Things went under, I snapped up a $500 kitchen island that was on clearance for $60. (Still don't know why; it was perfect) I used it in an entryway for a year, then sold it on craiglist for $275.
Profit = $215...
yay for us!

dongdong said...

way to go! You are awesome! Feel better soon.

Melia said...

Great job!!

Hope you feel better soon!!!

Just say Julie said...

Good job on the garge sale!
It never fails that when you finally get a break from your classroom, you get sick. I think it's cause we finally rest long enough for the germs to catch up :) Hope you're better soon.

Jamie said...

Your hubby is right, you are awesome! That is such a great story, I've been telling everyone. "Guess what my blogger friend did..." and everyone agrees...awesome! Hope you feel better!

Tricia said...

Good job! Always nice to make a profit and get a freebie at the same time.

Martha said...

Really nice job on the barstools!

Jo said...

That's so great! You are awesome!

Maureen said...

That is phenomenal!

Mellisa - Chinook Jewelry said...

Wow, yep you're awesome (and it sounds like your hubby is awesome for telling you so too!)

Printing Company said...

The title reminds me so much of Barney Stinson. "I'm awesome!" LOL.
Hope you're doing fine now.
