Making Room For The Stroller And Selling Some Stuff On eBay

It’s hard to believe, but our baby girl is due to be born in less than nine weeks!

We have been working around the house, getting ready for her birth.

We have created a new budget.

We purchased a few new things for the nursery.

We cleaned out our closets and held a garage sale.

Finally, last week, I cleaned out our laundry / storage room (to make space for her new stroller) – and I found a few things to sell on eBay.

All of the auctions are scheduled to end in less than an hour.  Once the auctions end, I’ll pack the items up for shipping.  Once I receive payment, I’ll head to the post office and ship the items.

After all is said and done, I’ll make $75 for two hours worth of work.  Not bad, considering that the things I’m selling were ‘in the way’ in the first place.

  1. Congratulations on your upcoming addition – kids are such a wonderful blessing! Your life will never be the same, and that’s a good thing. The joy grows exponentially with each one that you have.

  2. Congrats again! How much do you think the baby’s birth will cost you? I hear so many varying answers about nothing to $3-5k. Are you hiring a doula? What’s that usually cost?

  3. Our insurance will pickup 90% of the cost, after we meet the initial deductible. $3K sounds about right, depending on what actually happens when my wife gives birth. Plus, we will probably have to pay a little extra for a private room, etc. All-in-all, I’ve budgeted $5K for the birth and the visits to the doctor in the weeks right after. I’ll let you all know how it all works out, price wise.
    As for a doula? I had to look that up! Never hear of one. 🙂 Nope, it’ll just me, the wife, the baby and the hospital staff. Great questions..

  4. Wow – time does fly doesn’t it? It sounds like you’re well prepared! I just found your podcast, and I LOVE it 🙂

  5. Congrats on the latest addition! I would also like to say you are an inspiration… I think I will clean out my spare room this weekend and see what I can sell on e-bay. Thanks.

  6. Congratulations on the baby! Sounds like you’ve done your homework and have a good plan in place.
