Theres 42 more weeks until June 1, my deadline to make the goal. With 57,366 remaining, thats an average of $1365 a week. Thats a slight uptick from where I was when I started, some soft weeks here in the summer made it go up. Im wondering if when Sept/Oct comes around I should ease back on putting inexpensive, interesting and diverse items in and go whole hog and lay out a big chunk. Like, say $400 on a Chanel bag or something. Still plenty of time to go but thinking out loud.

Me personally? I would like to see you get this done utilizing the perceived "game plan" that initially got this thread going. Inexpensive/diverse vs high priced.

I realize a June deadline coincides with the summer...and what's better to have come some nice weather? A new Ferrari! But think about the stories that you can tell when you say that you were able to secure the down payment by flipping inexpensive/nice/diverse $hit online! What's an extra month or 2?

Just my $.02.

You can always ramp it up come Feb/March with bigger ticket items if needed to get you across the finish line!
