eBay vs Charity shop

I was clearing the spare room today trying to find space for all my new Christmas presents, throwing everything I no longer wanted into bags ready for the charity shop. Whenever I do this I always debate in my head whether I should sell some of the stuff on eBay, but the charity shop always wins as I am too lazy to list everything on eBay. So with my renewed motivation for all things money making this time I decided to give eBay a go.

Got paid for my mystery shopping

Royal Ascot

So my run of bad luck with the horses continues, our of six races I only got to make one smug trip back to the bookies to claim my winnings and that was for the 8/13 clear favourite Yeats in the Gold Cup.
