That's actually a really cute idea.. :3
Anyway, I'm selling off my worldly possessions on craigslist, selling textbooks on Amazon.com, and I made a deal with my parents (since they still provide me with food and shelter...
) that if we avoided going out to eat, going shopping, going to movies and other such things that we normally do on occasion, that they would give me the money that they saved from not doing those things.
I also had a yard sale back in August, which got like $600, and my various family members sent me about $300 in holiday money. So I've managed to make about $2000 doing all of those things so far, but it looks like I might need to get a little job soon to make up the difference.
