Frugal Friday With Marsha -- Clearance Time

It's that time of year.  Time for the stores to clear out Winter items to make room for Spring.  Actually it's been that time for awhile now  😀
My daughter has been having a good time shopping the clearance clothing and even picked up a few things for me while she was at it.  She brought them over last night.  She paid $1 to $3 for each item.
I'm thrilled!  She also brought me a pair of tennis shoes.  I thought she told me they were on clearance for $3, but I didn't see that reflected on the price tag.  I think  she just wanted to make sure that I had a pair of tennis shoes that wouldn't hurt my bad toe.  She's nice like that.  😍

I've been giving LetGo a try.  I sold the pair of tennis shoes that were too small for me right away.  Not having luck with my other listings yet, but I'm not giving up.  I have some things I want to list that didn't sell in the local Facebook selling page.  It's a matter of getting the stuff out, getting another picture and posting.
I also am in the very slow process of going through things in my craft/sewing room.  My guild is having a member rummage sale at the end of this month.  I hope that at least some of my extra will sell and help me make a little money.

WIP Wednesday -- Penny Rug

Well, babysitting grandchildren, 2 of which are babies, is really lessening my sewing time  😞  I love them, but I must figure out how to get in sewing time!

I only sewed a few minutes one day, finishing up a set of the microwave hotpad/cozies.  I posted a set on Letgo to see how that goes. 

I also got motivated for just one day to work more on clearing out and organizing in my craft/sewing room.  Once again someone ordered something from my Etsy shop and I found the item to be in the very bottom tote.  My goal is to clear a path, then clear off the bigger shelf, then put my items for sale on the shelf.  That way when something sells, I can go right to it instead of digging into totes.
In the process I will also see what I have completed that is not listed for sale as well.

I have pulled out the Penny Rug that I started some time back.  I took a picture of my original progress to remind you.  I included the circles that I have completed and ready to sew on as well.
Now I'm itching to start sewing the completed circles onto the wool blanket.   Cross your fingers for me that I get to at least work on this rug a little each day!

That's it for my report this week.  With any luck at all, I will get things figured out and have a lot more to report next Wednesday.  It's sit n' sew at the quilt shop this Friday.  Barring nothing goes wrong, I fully intend to finally get back to working on the Arkansas Crossroads quilt top.

I link up with the following blogs.  I hope you will hop over and check them out as well.

Swago: Spring Edition is here! (US)

The digital rewards site Swagbucks is offering big payouts during their "Swago: Spring Edition" promotion, which runs from now through Monday, March 12th at 9am PT! Swago is just like bingo, but in this case you're filling out squares as you earn points on their site for doing things you already do online. If you're thinking of trying Swagbucks, this is a great chance to learn all about how the site works and earn bonus points while doing it, meaning you can get more gift cards faster. Here are a few tips: 

  • Each square on your Swago Board will contain an action item to complete. They can be anything from getting a search win, completing a survey, or just visiting one of our popular stores!
  • Once you complete the action item in a particular square the square will change color signifying the action item is complete.
  • You have until 12pm PT/3pm ET on Monday, March 12th to mark off as many squares as possible so use your time wisely.
  • Be mindful of the patterns and their corresponding bonuses located on the right of your Swago Board. The patterns will vary in difficulty and bonus value. Once you’ve achieved a pattern, the corresponding “Submit” button will light up. You can have multiple patterns available for submission, however, you can only submit ONE pattern so choose wisely.
  • Each activity you successfully complete on your Swago Board will give you anywhere from 1-20 spins on the Spin & Win Wheel. PLUS, when you submit your board for a bonus you'll get additional spins. The number of spins will depend on the pattern you complete. The wheel has all sorts of great prizes that you can win, and each spin is a winner!
The Spin & Win Wheel will be available all throughout Swago and you have until 11:59pm PT on Monday, March 12th to use all your spins. 

Fill up your board and then submit your pattern to get even more points - if you can fill in the whole board, you get a 500 SB bonus, which is enough for a $5 gift card from the retailer of your choice.  

Click here right now and click "Join" to get started! If you don't already have a Swagbucks account, you'll be able to quickly sign up; PLUS, if you earn 300 SB before the first of January, you'll get a bonus 300 SB!

I love the spin and win wheel!  Come on in and get your SWAGO board so you can earn your spins too!
