Tetanus shot=$$

January 10th, 2007 at 11:59 am

I have $5 more dollars to add to my challenge.The plasma center has offered me to be on the tetanus program. I got the shot, recieved 5 bucks. If my levels to anitbodies are high enough after several weeks I will be on the program which will give me 5 extra bucks a week.Which in turn means more tetnus shots to keep up the antibodies.

New Total: $155.37

A little from this and that to add to the challenge

January 8th, 2007 at 04:30 pm

Yesterday I did the grocery shopping and saved $5.97 in coupons.

Today, I received $7.84 from ebook drop plus a $5.00 pinecone check. I'm adding $18.81 to the total.

New Total:$150.37

Yesterday we stopped off at the goodwill and the hubbers found two bmx bikes for $8 each. He had some of his own $$. He bought the bikes hoping to fix/clean them up and sell to a local bike shop.
He thinks it will make a profit?? I'll let ya know how it turns out.

$20 challenge Day 3/4

January 5th, 2007 at 10:13 pm

Day Three
Donated plasma on thursday, received $5 more than expected. The bonus amount runs through Jan. So, I'll be adding that $5 each week through Jan. I also found .12 in the camera bag before mailing it out.

Day Four

We are switching our internet service. Ordered the new service online. The special stated $19.99 for six months. A rebate on the modem and a do it yourself installation with no hook-up fee. Call to set up the account and they state I'll have to pay the hook-up fee. I decline- get the run around etc... I decided to call back today and go for it anyway. We would still be saving $60 a month over what we pay currently.
So, I intended to pay the $49.95 fee but it worked out in my favor after all. Adding the $49.95 to the challenge money.

previous: $76.49


I'm not adding the monthly internet savings to the challenge because I need to do this for debt reduction and that's where those funds will go.

$20 Challenge Day Two

January 3rd, 2007 at 01:07 pm

My ebay auctions ended today. I sold 4 things for a profit of $51.49.
Items sold were, two pair of jeans, a camera bag, old melamine dishes

I have a large roll of white photography paper sitting in my shed that I'm going to put in the local paper. Hoping to bring in $25 for it. It may take a few weeks or I may have to hold it over for the spring garage sale.??

I know we had funds left over in our checking account from last year. Dh has $$ in his wallet. I'll be adding it up and dividing it among various savings accounts and envelopes. I may try and sneak an extra $20 into the challenge, if it's there.?

Adding: $51.49
Start: $25


$20 Challenge Day One

January 2nd, 2007 at 11:04 am

So my challenge starts with $25 that I will receive today from donating blood plasma plus I have a purse in the works to be sold, items currently on ebay with bids.

We were given a $20 GC for the grocery store two days ago. I'm keeping that thing until I spot a super deal on meat or tuna or something. I'm keeping my eyes peeled for a good deal.I'm not adding it to my challenge figure as I see it saving me $$ off my grocery budget. If I come in under my $200 grocery budget for Jan. I will roll my underbudget amount to my challenge.

Day One: $25

A New Year with New Challenges

January 2nd, 2007 at 10:49 am

I'm new here, but stepping right up to the plate and taking full accountability for my financial state and financial future.

Here I will share my $20 Challenge results. I'm currently thinking about various ways to increase the money. One thing I will do for sure is make a purse from left over fabric and see how it sells on ebay. The purse was cut out last night and it will be sewn today. If the financial payoff is successful I may do it again.

Let the challenge begin!
