Dan 1, Feature Films for Families 0

Got a letter back from Feature Films for Families. Although they did not send me any money, that is fine – they’re not required to at this point. But if they call any time in the next 10 years, they are miiiiiiine.

As Doug pointed out, now I am on their “you really really don’t want to call this guy and if you do, you’re fired” list. Which is right where I want to be!

Box Tops deal update

Now, I know that you, my loyal readers, sometimes read a post such as this one where I mention a Meijer Box tops for Education deal and wonder to yourselves, “Now I wonder what ever happened to all those box tops coupons that Dan got?”

In fact, I can visualize you crying yourselves to sleep in pain from not knowing.

But fear not! I have been waiting to give you an update until my final box tops sold, which they just did yesterday. After a disastrous first auction, where 210 box tops only sold for $17.50, I had more success with buy it nows. The final box tops sold yesterday, and the 1260 box tops sold for a gross price of $166.44, an average of 13.21 cents per box top. After ebay and paypal fees, the net profit was $138.08, or 10.96 cents per box top.

In an odd twist of coincidence, the total cost of all the food was $87.08 (the coincidence that they were both some dollars and 8 cents).

So, the final report is 24 bisquik 40 oz, 20 brownie mixes, 44 chex mix, 38 frosting, 20 muffin mix, 4 boxes of potatoes, 13 helper, 1 honey nut cheerio snack mix and a net profit of $51.

Sleep well, faithful readers!!!!
