Today, I was logging in to my Paypal account to request the funds into my checking account and I apparently have two paypal accounts, because I logged into the wrong one and it had $8.50 in it. I have no idea when that's from or where the $8.50 came from. It was too old of a transaction to see the details, but it was definitely nice to stumble across some extra money. I had it transferred into my savings (since you can't have more than one paypal account linked to the same bank account), which is actually kind of nice. Obviously $8.50 isn't a miraculous amount to save, but it does seem smart to link my Paypal to my savings so that extra money I earn goes straight there.
Anyway, after shipping charges I earned an extra $31.64 this month by selling my stuff (and finding Paypal money). I still have one more listing on Ebay that hasn't sold, so we'll see if it sells. My goal for the year was to earn an extra $100 selling items online. So far I've earned a total of $95.33, so I expect to easily surpass that goal.
Do you sell items on online? What do you do with that extra income?
