Selling laptops

I haven't posted anything for quite some time.
I'm doing well with my stocks. I've been buying Jim Cramer's recommendations. They are doing better than the market. I think I found a way to make some Mad Money. I'm up about $2000 not counting the money I spent on my car and paying a creditor. Even today, with the market heading down, I'm making money.
The car has been a problem. I had to spend over $200 last week on a fuel pump. This week the headlights are going out so I can't drive it at night. Thursday I'm having the headlight switch replaced.
While I was having it troubleshot I looked at another car for sale. It's a 1995 Chevy. I might buy it. My van is getting too old and tired.
I'm taking my laptops to the E-Bay store in Decorah to have them sold. I have 8 of them. I hope to get $150 a piece for them. That would pay for the car and any more repairs on the van. I think I'll keep the van for the move to Decorah.
I may not have mentioned that I'm going to move back to town. Calmar is just too boring. There is no coffee shop with Internet access. Until there is a Student Union building at the community college there is no place to hang out. I end up spending $75/week going to and from Decorah. I can't afford it. I'll find a place that includes the heat in the rent and it'll be as cheap as living in Calmar. Where I'll save money is in the traveling. In fact I might just get by with a bicycle.
I was thinking about discussing Jim Cramer's recommendations on my blog, but I think you should watch his show on CNBC and make up your own mind on what to invest in.
Later,
Craig
