January Snowflakes

January 31st, 2016 at 07:01 pm

Jan snowflakes total: $270.63

$15 Trader Joe Giftcard that I received for Christmas that I used yesterday. So I'm reducing my grocery budget by the same amount
$62 CC rewards
$42 Sold some items via Amazon trade-in program so they applied the amount as gift card to my account
$31 Sold an item on Ebay and received payment via PayPal yesterday
$60.63 under-budget for December so I'm rolling that to my snowflake category in YNAB
$10 Target GC
$50 Sold an old tv to a friend, she still owes me $25

Great start to the year, bring on February! My goal is $150

Digital Disconnect Day

One of my goals for 2016 is to take one day a month and disconnect from the computer/social media. Well that day for me will be tomorrow. I'm off to remove the Facebook app from my phone and make a to-do list for tomorrow. Anyone care to join in??

More Flakes

I took advantage of an offer at Target.com and bought 4 Dove deodorants for $2.44 each and received a $ 5 Target GC in return. This was the first I've used the pick-up in store option which meant I paid no shipping. The process was very easy and I was in and out. I'm counting that gift card as a snowflake Smile
