More to $20 challenge!

April 21st, 2006 at 04:22 pm

Put $0.78 in my change jar and the mailman brought 2 $10.00 Lowe's gift cards! These were the freebie for trying the Complete Home Trial membership. These however, may be used during my annual spring trip to Denver to purchase a much needed ceiling fan for my bedroom. The fan still won't cost me anything by using them!

No Spend Days

I've had 3 no spend days in row...unfortunately it was due to being sick! I'm finally back to work and I did buy lunch out, but we Chinese and for $7.00 got enough WonTon soup for both lunch and dinner tonight.

First post!

Well, it's my first post in this catagory and I did pretty good today!

Received two $10.00 Circuit City gift cards for trying buyers advantage through MyPoints! Couldn't believe how fast those showed up!

Put $1.54 in my change jar.

First Step...

...or should I say steps?

I started a new savings account today. It will begin with a monthly automatic deposit of $10.00. Not much but it's a start. When and if I get a cost of living raise I'll adjust the deposit amount. This account is in addition to the one I have at my credit union that has a $50.00 monthly deposit made to it.

I started a new change jar. I have saved my change for years but I wanted a new jar so I could keep track of what I put in it each week.

I'll be changing my Netflix membership to the lowest package. One DVD at a time is enough for me, plus I'll probably be better at watching them when they come if I only have one in the house at a time.

My goal is to be debt free in two years and save enough to pay cash for a trip abroad I've been wanting to take.
