ABDPBT Personal Finance Debt Snowflaking Pageant: Week Three Progress Report
Well, kids, I have good news and I have bad news. The good news is . . . the snowflaking pageant now has its very own promotional button. Finally. Behold and enjoy. This promotional button has been over three weeks in the making, and I think the quality shows, particularly if you cannot tell that I totally ripped it off from a Skip*Hop ad. Oops, I meant to say that the similarities between this promotional button and a Skip*Hop ad are purely coincidental. OK, so the bad news is that I had some setbacks this week with the debt snowflaking, and I will document them here so that you all can see that I will keep soldiering on, even in the face of adversity, in the pursuit of my snowflaking goals.
The first setback was a sale I made on eBay last week, where I mistakenly told an international buyer that I could ship to her. After she won the auction, I went to the post office to mail her a pair of baby shoes and the cost was, get this, $92. For a pair of baby shoes. So yeah, I didn’t send those shoes, and had to refund the buyer her money. Fortunately, she was very nice about the whole thing. But of course, now I have to relist the shoes, and I have not gotten around to this, or to listing all of the other items that I so smugly announced I’d be throwing into the snowflaking bin last week. So, in short, Week Three was a total bust. No new money, no new items listed, and the refund of some of the money I made in Week 2.
But, my friends, life is long. This week, I will be relisting the shoes I already sold once. I will also add another pair of shoes. And those are my small goals for snowflaking in the next seven days. What are yours?
