I think I mentioned on here awhile back that I started using my Etsy earnings towards things for the new house. To this point, I've purchased a buffet for the dining room, curtains for 4 rooms, a new bagless vacuum cleaner, several things from my Signature Homestyles party a few weeks back, some wall decor, and some other knick-knacks. I've truly purchased every little thing for the new house w/ my Paypal debit card and Etsy earnings. It's so gratifying to know that my hobby has now turned into a way to really help out around the house, and I love it.
The new year's purchases will bring more curtains, more things to decorate, and the big one--drywall and materials to finish the basement. (a few pieces at a time, I'm sure!)
