Biggest Loser of Debt/Savings Update

March 21st, 2012 at 03:32 am

I added $420 to my Roth IRA so my new total for this challenge is $3445, more than half way to 5K goal.

My AGC total via SB is now $115, I'm saving those for Christmas 2012. My total so far is $380! Here it is the first day of Spring and I'm writing about Christmas. SmileI've also saved $30 in 5 dollar bills in my monthly $5 bill challenge.

Last note, I had a green smoothie today. Romaine lettuce, apple, orange, blueberries and flax seeds. Great first day of Spring!

Biggest Loser of Debt/Savings Update

My goal is to save/payoff $5000 from 1 Mar-26 April. Today I sent $1125 to an extra principal payment on the mortgage. I cashed $100 in rewards from my PerkStreet account since they are making major changes soon. I also finally received $300 bonus check for opening a Chase Freedom card; I will add that to my Christmas fund. So my total since starting is now $3025!!

$5 Bill Challenge Update

My new total is $10. I've been saving my $1 bills for so long that now it feels funny to spend them. I guess I'm wierd now Smile

On other note, I worked out with my sis-in-law this morning and then I made us a mostly green juice. We had cucumber,celery,lime,green grapes and a lemon. It was a very refreshing post work-out juice.

March $5 Bill Challenge

March 3rd, 2012 at 02:19 am

More than a year ago I started saving all of my one dollar bills. To my surprise, at the end of 2011 I had almost $400 saved. Since I'm now saving for a 2013 trip to the Bahamas, I've decided to set up my game and save $5 bills instead.

So as of today, I have $5 saved. Anyone care to join in? You can still participate by saving $1 bills instead. Bring on March Madness!!
