The $500 Challenge Update and Mr Linky

Today was the first day of our neighborhood's 3 day yard sale and thankfully the weather was beautiful. I made $70 and most of that were items from this table...

...a bunch of knick knacks that will be so much happier in someone else's home.

Seventy dollars isn't a bad start, but I need to do better over the next two days if I want to hit my goal for the $500 Challenge. I think I'll spend the rest of the day evaluating many more of my possessions and asking myself, 'do I really need this?'.

How are you doing with the challenge? If you are a blogger participating in the challenge and making updates on your site about your progress, please link up your most recent update with Mr. Linky. If you are not a blogger and are participating in the challenge, please let us know how you are doing in the comment section.

Make sure you take some time to check back over the next few days and visit the other links to see how the other bloggers are doing with their challenge. This is a great opportunity to find/meet/support other bloggers and get some ideas on how to find $500!

A few Mr. Linky guidelines:
  • Please link your most recent challenge updates to Mr. Linky. If you are not a blogger, please tell us about your challenge updates in the comment section.

  • Please post the link to your update, NOT to your homepage. To do this, click on your update post, copy and paste the whole url address into the Mr. Linky.

  • I also ask that you post a link back to Family Balance Sheet in your article.
