This weeks earnings are huge! I wish every week could be like this. Selling things has been going well. I will be glad when its done with and the piles are gone. Currently I am at $141.61 from selling my old things. My husband had Lifelock offer credit from December on SB. That is where his $100.00 came from. The 30 Day No Dining Out Challenge went well. I already added it to my calendar to do again in June. I did cave once you can read about it here. It gave me a nice boost this month.
We use our credit card as a debit card. Everything goes on it. Then we pay it off in full every pay period. If you are disciplined enough to pay off your card in full every month. I highly suggest getting a cash back credit card to use for everyday purchases. If you know you won’t pay it off right away don’t even try it. You will end up paying more in interest than what you earn in rewards. You can earn anywhere from 1% – 5% back depending on the card you have. My card pays 3% back. We are working on getting our credit score good enough to qualify for a 5% back card. Its an easy way to add money into your fund. I usually cash out before Christmas and vacations typically early June. I cashed out in July of 2019. Skipped cashing out again in December. With thoughts of cashing out more right before my Universal trip.
This week was a good week. I earned/found $624.37! My goal to pay off the park tickets by the end of February that should happen by next week. I only need to earn an additional $51.59. After that all I have left is food, spending, and souvenir money.
