That bonus unexpected cash was a big help this week! I love hearing about people finding unexpected money. It is like finding buried treasure!
I have had some unexpected money just fall in my lap! Don’t you love when that happens? I know I do! It never fails every time, I have a savings goal money just seems to fall out of the sky to help me achieve that goal. Last week, I got in 2 Staples coupons one was for $5/$5 purchase and the other was $10/$10 purchase. My husband had also told me the day before he needed some folders and notebooks for school. I was going to have to buy those items anyway. Because of that I took $15.00 out of my general house budget and added that into my Disney fund. Just yesterday I got in a reimbursement check from an overpayment to a car dealership where we had work done on my truck. That was $80.00!
I like to keep my Disney fund cash in Paypal. That way it’s separate from my regular checking account, but I have access to it. It makes it so easy when money just falls in your lap. I just transferred $95.00 from my checking to Paypal. 2 days later the money was there. I have a Paypal debit card. If I really need access to the money ASAP I have it. All I have to do is go to an ATM or use the debit card.
I can’t even begin to tell you how overjoyed I was to finally have reached $25.00 cash out on Receipt Hog! It takes me 9 months to get to $25.00. It is a very slow earner! I have to remind myself that pennies add up to dollars. It is really easy to submit a receipt. For that reason I will continue with it.
With Swagbucks I earned $25.00 this week! My daily meter bonus was 879 SB for August. When Revenue Universe was paying double I did one survey for 171 SB. I earned 6 SB from searching the web, 4 SB from the spinning the wheel, and entered 2 SB codes for 6 SB. 1,500 SB came from surveys. I did do the Honest deal it will credit in 32 days.
