$2,159.90 becomes $2,246.35
Now this next section I'm going way off base with my approach. I decided not to buy anything but rather to clear out some closets and sell a few things we no longer needed. I know this totally violates the intent of the project and if you feel strongly that I should remove these figures from the total, just tell me so. I'm kind of making this up as I go.
Personal Smurf Collection: sold for $65
Grain Mill (donated by neighbor) - sold for $6
Coleman Gas Lantern (donated by neighbor) - sold for $15.45
STEP TWENTY: Bought for free, sold for $86.45
Project Profit: $2,246.35
