Like my Reading Challenge yesterday, I am closing out my Found Money Challenge a bit early this month. While there is a little bit of change I could cash in, a consignment box ready to go, and there are quite a few bottles/can I could return, I don't think it's going to feasible with the Easter holiday this weekend and a busy next week (nothing major just catching up on some stuff). The good news about that is hopefully it will turn April into a lucrative found money month....Fingers crossed!
Yesterday morning, while out looking for items for the Guppies' Easter baskets, I knew I would be over near our closest Game XChange. For those not familiar with this store, they deal in used video game consoles, games, IPhones, IPods, and DVD's. I had around fifteen DVDs that the Freebie Fairy passed on to me so a stop in this store was needed. I got rid of some clutter in my house and made $21.50 in CASH for my ten minutes of patiently waiting for the clerk to check and scan each item. Granted, I could have made more if I had opted for their "store credit" rather than cash - I would have gotten $32. However, it just didn't make much sense at the moment since the store doesn't carry many PS4 games - the system most utilized in our house.
My Found Money deposit for this month ended up at:
$24 - forgotten Christmas lottery tickets
$21.50 - DVDs to Game XChange
for a grand total of...
Total amount of Found Money for the year stands at...
All in all, not too shabby! =)
Have a great Thursday!
