Once again this year Food Lion is running a promotion to collect 6 weekly tickets (out of 8 weeks) and earn a voucher worth $20.00 off your next shopping order!
The promo runs from 10/1/14 to 11/25/14 and the tickets must be redeemed by 12/9/14. To earn a ticket, visit Food Lion and spend $40.00 or more while shopping.
Last year you could earn the ticket by adding a gift card to your purchases. I hope it works again this year, since I never spend $40.00 in trip!

My first trash-to-cash Ebay sale for the month of September was this box of Prevacid that I got for free at Rite Aid back in July. It sold for $5.00 plus the buyer paid first class shipping of $2.32.
Another dumpster diving find were these 2 new packs of Universal looseleaf business card pages. I sold them for $12.00 with free First Class shipping which cost me $1.93.
Here are some more sales from my continuing efforts to declutter the house:
I found this copy of The Mom Inventor's Handbook collecting dust in my basement, so I listed and sold it for $16.99 with free media mail shipping. The shipping cost me $2.69.
These Nike cleats were purchased second-hand for my daughter to play lacrosse last year and we paid $15.00 for them. I resold them on Ebay for $15.00 at the end of her season, and the buyer paid $8.55 for shipping. They were pretty dirty, but I cleaned them up nicely for photos with my Mr. Clean Magic Erasers.
My daughter Charlie asked me to list this book on numerology for her. It sold for $12.00 with free Media Mail shipping, which cost $2.69.
These vintage Dingo Western boots sold for $59.99 plus the buyer paid $14.25 for shipping. These were given to my daughter by one of her friends, but they were size 11 and didn't really fit anyone in the family or I would have kept them!
My daughter Bridgette asked me to list these three books about Japan for her. They sold for $14.99 with free Media Mail free shipping which was $2.69.
This khaki skirt from Coldwater Creek that was taking up space in my closet sold for $25.99 with free shipping. I put the keyword "modest" in the title, since some shoppers search specifically for that. First Class shipping was $2.69.
And finally, my best sale for the month was this hand-blown cobalt blue glass platter. I purchased it (and 11 others) back in 1987 when I lived in Damascus, Syria for a few dollars each. I thought I might use them as dinner plates or chargers, but I never did. I moved them from place to place around the world with me for over 25 years and decided they weren't serving any purpose in my basement, so I listed one. It sold for $99.99 and the buyer paid $11.65 for shipping!
My total trash-to-cash Ebay sales for September were $304.36.
Paypal and Ebay fees cost me $39.56 and free shipping costs totalled $12.49, thus my net profits for the month came to $252.31.
After I gave Charlie $9.00 for her book and gave Bridgette $10.00 for her book, I ended up with $233.31!

This is a nice double dip with the Catalina for Campbell's Slow Kettle Style soup that I posted about at Harris Teeter!

A Catalina is a coupon that prints out of the box next to register at many supermarkets and drug stores. There are two kinds of Catalinas:
1) A coupon for a particular product
2) A coupon for savings on your next order, no matter what you buy
Last week I purchased 2 Campbell's Slow Kettle Soups at Harris Teeter with the expectation of receiving a Catalina coupon for $1.50. My Catalina didn't come out of the machine, even though I received several others, so I knew the machine was working.
When I got home I went HERE and input all of the information from my receipt.
Today I received this nice letter from Catalina marketing along with my coupon:
