we just learned that my son now needs spearing gear for Tae Kwon Do. I took 80 dollars from my PayPal so that it did not need to be budgeted. I keep the money in PayPal until I need it. It is also time to sign up for dance, which is 100 for the whole year. I have enough to cover that. Then, my daughter has outgrown her dance shoes so I will pay for those grom eBay as well. I may even be able to find a good used pair. I made over 200 this month so far and I am hoping to bring in another hundred before the end of the month. Last year, I also used those funds for stocking stuffers at Christmas.
We sell some things on ebay, but lately it’s mostly used for me earning money from opinionoutpost.com — they’ll transfer $10 at a time – and each time, I transfer any money in the account over $10 to our checking account.
I’ll admit that that money isn’t more than $20-30 per month, and I use it as a buffer — it’s the one piece of our budget that doesn’t have a home, and I’ll admit, it often goes to something small – eating out, picking up some food, etc. It’s probably one of those things that keeps my husband sane through this debt re-payment period. 🙂
