More Money Making Tips: Buying and Selling Used and Making a Profit

Back in January, I started these fun little alliteration money-saving challenges. I had Jumpstart January, Frugal February, Money Making March, April Audit, and now {what should be} Money Saving May, but guess what? It's my blog and I am going to shake things up. I had such a HUGE response from readers who loved following along with me on my money-making March challenge. I started out with a goal to put $500 back into my pocket, and I ended the month making $1000! Just by selling items I had at home. I continue to hear from people on an almost daily basis about how they were inspired to sell an item or two on eBay, at consignment or on Facebook Marketplace.

I get giddy when I hear your successes, but even more giddy now that I have an extra $1000 in my pocket! I mean, come on. With your success stories, I'm also still getting questions about how you can successfully make money selling your old stuff, so I thought I'd take another month to tackle all of your questions and to take you along with me as I attempt to replicate my success from money-making March. Dare I set the challenge to make ANOTHER $1000 selling my stuff?

Making a Successful Transition from Stay at Home Mom to Working Mom

I graduated from college with a toddler. After graduation, I don't even think it was a discussion, I knew I wanted to stay at home with my kids. It was a sacrifice that we made for our family and I wouldn't trade that time at home with my family for anything. But I'm not one of those ladies who lunch either. Even when the kids were young, I was a perpetual volunteer always finding ways to keep myself busy outside of parenting and playdates. Once all three kids were in school full time, I started transitioning to working a very full part-time schedule. This wasn't an easy transition, and we made a lot of mistakes, but I'd like to share some things I learned with you in case transitioning from being a SAHM {stay at home mom} to a working mom is something on the horizon for you.


Instant Pot Pulled Pork Sandwich Recipe

I have a love/hate relationship with my Instant Pot. I feel fooled every time I use it. People who sing its praises talk about how you can make dinner in under 10 minutes and I get excited about that, but then I try it and I'm waiting 10 minutes for the dang thing to just start to warm up and count down. I digress. Though I did write my thoughts about the Instant Pot here, so if you want to commiserate with me, go check that post out. All that to say, I use my Instant Pot at least once a week and this instant pot pulled pork recipe is one of our favorites. I can often find pork on sale at my local grocery for cheap, and when I do, I often freeze it for an easy weeknight recipe. If you're looking for something easy you can whip together, check out this Instant Pot Pulled Pork Sandwich.
