Quadruple Duty!

Doing Four things at once:

  • Getting some exercise (that’s 1)
  • by cleaning out a long neglected storage unit (that’s 2)
  • Make some money (that’s 3)
  • by Having an “Online” Garage Sale (that’s 4)

and BONUS!  DE-cluttering and DE-junking my life!  Woot!

If you’ve been reading my blog you might have picked up on the fact that finances for me right now are very tight.

So…  I’m killing the proverbial “two birds” by cleaning out a long neglected storage unit and hopefully turning that junk into some cash.  Everything in the unit that (1) does not have serious sentimental value is going!

Either I’m selling it online, or I’m giving it away to a local resale shop that sells used goods to raise money for an AIDS Outreach Center.

The connection to “exercise” and my Journey to Health & Fitness is that doing this type of thing is part of my self-examination and clearing my life of junk, both literally and figuratively.

And the actual lifting and toting and opening of boxes and cleaning the stuff and listing the stuff and…  all of that activity counts as “movement” and I am determined to make “movement as a part of my actual life” be the way I burn calories, instead of doing “exercise for the sake of exercise”

I’ll be listing NEW stuff all month long… so be sure to check it every once in a while to see what new stuff has been added

Some of the “cooler” items:

An autographed CD from Bette Midler – Flat Signed

Bette Midler - Cool Yule 01

I have quite a few autographed CDs and several hard to find CDs by Indie Bands. and some special “promo” CDs — Check it out

A Portable Professional Quality Ballet Barre

My pic 01

A Leather Ballcap for the uhmmm “Boy” in your life.  ;-)


A Collectible OU Sooners Baseball Cap

This one actually has a bid on it on eBay so it will sell.  If you want it, enter your bid quickly!  Less than 5 days left in the auction as I type this


Check out All my listings on Craigslist:

There really is too many items to list individually.  There is also some overlap, of course, between the three online sites where I’m selling the junk.  uhmmm… the valuable merchandise.  LOL

Hey!  One man’s junk is another man’s treasure!  Right.  Check out all three sites.



Check out All my auctions on eBay:

I’m listing more and more every day.


Check out My listings on Amazon

This is where I have the most because I used to go around to garage sales and buy books, movies and CDs.  Now I’m cleaning house.  Everything that doesn’t sell in the next 30-60 days is going to be given away, or I’ll take it to Half-Price Books and take whatever they offer me for it.  I’m tired of having it around.

Tony’s Take on: Qmee and PayPal

Qmee — Making “Easy Money” for doing what you’re already doing!

First, let’s get the rating thing done:

5 stars from TxCowboyDancer

Yes, friends and neighbors… FIVE COWBOY STARS!  — A perfect score! Woot!

Why? I hear the teeming masses (and the odd cousin or two..) asking?  We’ll I’m glad you asked.  Here’s why:

  • No minimum cash out threshold.  You can transfer funds to your PayPal account any time you have a cash balance.  I’ve even transferred as low as 5 cents!
  • You have the option to take cash and pay yourself, OR you can donate your “cash” to charity.  Ain’t that sweet!  It is a cool thing actually, but folks I need those pennies, every single one of them!  Gimme da CASH!   :-)
  • INSTANT PAYOUT!  We all know I’m prone to Read the rest of this entry

Tony’s Take on: Online Money Making Sites (a new review series)

Series Introduction

Since this is the first time I’ve done this review thing for an online site, I guess an introduction is in order.

There are a lot of places where you can “Make money online!”  And of course there are a LOT of scams out there preying on folks.

In this series I will share with you my personal experiences with some of them and give you my 2 cents worth.  Get it?  2 cents- making money online?  LOL  I crack myself up sometimes.

When I do a review of an “online money making site”  it will be part review, part tips & tricks, and a dash of my usual, well, uhmmm… drama.

Ok, there. I admitted it. I tend to do “drama” even “drama” isn’t really necessary. But on the other hand. Life without “drama” would be SO boring… ;-) And I’m good for a couple laughs when I’m being dramatic… ;-)

Nonetheless, my intent is to keep the drama to a minimum and keep these reviews fairly short and to the point, or at the very least, relevant to the topic at hand. Enjoy!
