Cash for Trash: May Sales and a Graduation

Can't believe half the year is over!  Blinked my eyes and here we are in June.  May sales were a little better at 18 for the month.  Here are my best 4 sales:

CUBAVERA Men's Short Sleeve Shirt Sz 2XL XXL Black Panel Rockabilly - Paid $1.14 @ GW Outlet - Sold $29.99 - Net Margin 73%

Thomas & Friends Wooden Railway Train Turntable 5 Way Switch for Tidmouth Sheds - Paid $0.20 @ GW Outlet - Sold for $35.00 - Net Margin 61%

Harley Davidson Freedom Rider Helmet Leather Black DOT Medium - Paid $1.28 @ GW Outlet - Sold for $49.99 - Net Margin 61%
Texas Instruments TI-89 Titanium Graphing Scientific Calculator NEW - Paid $54.01 @ Target - Sold for $109.95 - Net Margin 33%
This calculator was in the clearance section at Target, and I can't believe I paid $54+ for it, even if it was retail arbitrage. Although my margin was less than 50%, I still made over $36 in net profit.

A couple weeks ago I flew to Texas to my DGD's high school graduation.  I was so happy to see the first of my grandchildren graduate high school.  She is also in the National Guard and will be spending her summer in training; and will return to start college in the fall.  So proud of her ... and all my grandchildren.

And life has a funny way of throwing curve balls at you.  In a last-minute decision, my DGS decided to come back with me to California.  He was struggling with some bad influences and we thought the move would give him a fresh start.  He'll be applying to a college & career academy at the local community college which will help him fast-track to a diploma and hopefully transfer to a university.

Well, that's it for now until the next time ...

Believe in yourself and prosper!
