I was on the fence, until yesterday, about going to the auction today. Honestly the thing that decided it for me was that there was also a regular sale going on. And this particular auction company, when they have a sale simultaneously, usually has the sale items go 50% off on the last sale date. Today was no exception!
We had to make two trips to bring back our new treasures! The most exciting part was when I took an approximate slightly used retail price inventory of the new treasures. According to my calculations (some prices guessed based on prior knowledge and some researched via google), I saved around $1000 today!!
I love saving money! And I especially love saving A LOT of money!!
More than half of the purchases were for my newest business endeavour (which will be announced here soon! As soon as the legal ends are tied up!).
I have much pride in the fact that my businesses have never been in debt. A few months in to learning appraising, when I switched mentors, I did take out a $1000 personal loan to afford my own license of the appraising software. And that’s it! That was 13 1/2 years ago. No business credit cards. No business loans. And this next branch of business will carry on this legacy! The way I figured it back then (and am absolutely sure of now!) a business brings enough things to worry about; why add financial instability with payments owed to that list?
Tonight I am so very thankful for the amazing deals on our items today! I am currently scoping out a few more deals! We’ll be ready to roll on the first plans for the new business before the ink dries on the paperwork!!
