because our emergency fund needs funding.

i just listed four items on ebay. they are all boutique/nice quality maternity clothes that are listed at fairly low opening bids. two of them offer free shipping. three of them are items i purchased on ebay but am not 100 percent in love with. one of them is a new skirt from babystyle that has a tag that shows it to cost $58. i bought it at the willow bend store at a closing sale this weekend for 90 percent off. because of the closeout, there was no way to try anything, and it doesn't fit quite right.

i mentioned a garage sale on here some time ago, and i do believe i plan to have one the last weekend in may. but i thought i'd try my hand at the ebay thing since a lot of the stuff i have to get rid of is clothing. and a lot of that clothing is name brand (banana republic, j. crew, nordstrom, etc. etc.) from my earlier, unmarried (read: dad was still buying my stuff) days. i figure it'd be worth it if i can make an average of $5 on a piece instead of 50 cents that i'd get at a garage sale.

we'll see. i'll only list the best stuff on ebay so there will certainly be plenty for a garage sale.

every little bit helps, right?
