Project Downsize :: Week 8 progress, earned $645 by selling items


Project-Downsize-Donate

Today wraps up 8 weeks of downsizing the items in our houseAs I mentioned earlier this month, my goal for March is on DONATING and giving items away.

If you missed it earlier, here is why we are downsizing:

  1. We have plans to move this summer and instead of upgrading to a bigger, better house, we plan to dramatically reduce our square footage. We aren’t being forced to do this – it’s a choice. We want to spend less on our next “home” so that we can focus more on things we love and value – like travel.
  2. I want to own my stuff and not have it own me. Ultimately I only want to keep the items that a.) serve a purpose and b.) that bring me joy.

Downsizing progress to date – 

Week 1 update here – earned $548.16
Week 2 update here – earned $1,283.47
Week 3 update here – earned $432.40
Week 4 update hereearned $300
Week 5 update here – earned $395
Week 6 update here – earned $160
Week 7 update here – earned zilch, nada, nothing!
Week 8 update – earned $645!!
Year-to-date – $3,756.03

MARCH progress

Donated-School-Supplies

This week I didn’t donate as much as I would have liked – both our cars were in the shop this week – on different days, so my mobility was definitely limited during the weekday business hours (when most non-profits are open for donations). But I did donate two gallon-size bags of school supplies – mostly pencils, mechanical pencils, lead, pens, highlighters and dry erase markers to my husband’s classroom. He teaches at an alternative high school and the students there can always use school supplies! Seriously, how many writing utensils do I need!?!

earn-money-selling-items

After not selling ANYTHING last week I went full throttle this week to list items and sell them in my local Facebook Buy, Sell and Trade group. And the hard work and effort paid off. I earned a whopping $645 this week by selling items around my house!

Pantry and Freezer Challenge March 2015 – spent $185.10 this month


pantry-freezer-challenge

I can’t believe we’ve reached the end of March already – which means the end of our Pantry & Freezer challenge.  I do these challenges a couple times a year – the purpose is to eat as much from my pantry and freezer as possible – and as little at the grocery store as I can.

The purpose of the challenge is:

  • Take a good inventory of what I have in the pantry and freezer
  • Use up close-dated items in stockpile and freezer
  • Eat out as LITTLE as possible, saving money by eating at home
  • Save major money on groceries for the month

It’s like a short-term diet for your grocery budget and a great way to thin out your freezer and pantry.

My goal for March was to spend no more than $200 at the grocery store, while STILL eating lots of fresh foods, meats and dairy products. On a typical month I spend closer to $400 on groceries for our family for 4.

My other goal was to clean out my pantry and freezer as much as possible. As I’ve mentioned before we plan to move this spring (see our downsizing journey here), so I’d like to get rid of our stockpile and sell our EMPTY freezer early this spring.

Now a pantry and freezer challenge is going to look different for each and everyone of us – it all depends on what you have in-stock when you start the challenge.

How much you spend during a grocery challenge will depend on:

  • How much you currently have in your stockpile and freezer
  • How many people you have in your family
  • How flexible you can be with meal planning
  • If you have any special dietary needs

FINAL NUMBERS!!! We spent $185.10 on groceries this month!!! I reached my goal for spending under $200 and as you can see from all the photos of our groceries – we ate a TON of fresh foods and meats. Most of my savings are thanks to manager markdowns – my favorite way to save.

$185.10 – that comes out to $5.97 a DAY to feed my family of FOUR. Granted we were eating a lot of food from the pantry and freezer – but I think we ate pretty good for that

We spent $122 on eating out – we ate out about once a week. I would have liked this number to be less – but it’s been a busy month, so I won’t try and beat myself up too much. About HALF of this was spent on a pizza night with 10+ people at our house – so that also adds to the cost. :)

You can see how we spent our $185.10 on groceries here. . .
