Can you believe that it’s already August? Time is steadily flying. July was a pretty good month for me. My page views dropped a little bit last month. I’m still working on ways to improve it.
Top Posts from July:
My debt repayment is still coming along. Another debt should be paid off in a month or two. I checked my credit last week on Credit Sesame and noticed something pretty damn good. Since January, my credit score has risen by 168 points. That’s a hell of a jump. It means I’m doing something right. Seeing that increase will help me stay motivated. This process hasn’t been easy. On some of the days when I work both jobs, I’m tired as hell once I get off. I’m doing what I need to do, though. It’s only temporary.
My eBay sales for last month were only $87. Another month where I didn’t make $200. It’s time for me to start researching other items to sell. I also haven’t found any Jordan’s in a few weeks either. I’m sure August will be much better. It has to be!
I also wrote a post called “The Thrifting Challenge“. My plan was to see how much I could make off items that I bought from the thrift store that day. Surprisingly I haven’t sold any of them yet. Sometimes things take a little longer to sell than expected.
In the meantime, I decided to do another challenge. I purchased $32 worth of stuff this past Saturday from several thrift stores. I have a feeling these items will sell faster.
Adidas Soccer Jersey – $10
Nike Golf Balls – $3
Chipper Jones Bobblehead – $10
Al Franken Bobblehead – $3
Michael Jordan Space Jam Jersey – $6
I also worked on 2 new t-shirt designs last month. According to Teespring 1 of them was a copyright violation. They suspended the campaign less than 12 hours after I started it. My active design can be seen below.
How was your July? Did you do anything exciting?
