Money I Spent:   $51 to get my windshield repaired. It looks pretty good. You can still see the spot a little bit, but I can live with it.

Money I Didn’t Spend or Extra Money I Made:  

eBay: Sold a Remington hat for $23 (including shipping), paid $1 at an estate sale. Sold a puzzle for $23 (including shipping), paid maybe $1 at Thrift Town. Sold a raquetball racket to a guy in Australia for $33.35 (incl shipping), paid $5 at a yard sale over a year ago. Sold vintage Christian Dior eyeglasses for $38, paid $1 at Salvation Army.

Use It Up Challenge:  One of my major use-it-ups over the past couple of months is eBay inventory. I haven’t been to a thrift store since June, that I remember. I have been trying to list some of my old pile of inventory before I start bringing in more stuff. This weekend I am dragging Sabrina to yard sales for a couple of hours though. I might hit up Salvation Army on Wednesday for a few, for half-price day.

Sugar I Ate:   No sugar today! Stevia in my coffee, that’s it.

Sugar I Avoided:   Sent all the leftover donuts to school with Sabrina. Otherwise I would’ve eaten them all while I was home alone waiting for Safelite to show up.

Thoughts:   It has not been the luckiest month to do fiscal fast — lots of doctor visits, dental visits, eye doctor/glasses and contacts to pay for, this windshield thing, etc. But I haven’t been “shopping for sport” this month at all! We have a big purchase coming up in the form of a new couch, but other than that I’m going to try to keep to a fiscal diet until Christmas shopping starts.
