I am very relived to say I have finished Couponing to Christmas!!! Not totally, I still have to finish buying presents. I am going to share what I purchase as I purchase it. That way you all have an idea of how I am stretching my money so far. I have earned $744.66. With my projected budget I only need $725.00. All my earnings will now be diverted back into my Couponing to Universal fund. This is the last post where the earnings will be split.
If you have been reading my posts for any length of time. You know I am all about goals. Now that I crushed the money for Christmas goal. I am going to focus on getting the hotel room paid off. My goal is have it paid in full by 12/31/19 or at least have the money ready to pay it off the next business day.
I have $573.82 in my fund right now. That means I need to earn an additional $935.37 in 10 weeks. Math is your best friend when you have big scary goals. Lets break it down by week it comes out to $93.53. Now lets go even farther and break it down by day. I need to earn $13.36 a day 7 days a week. Still a scary number I know! Sometimes I will earn more and other days less. I just have to keep my eyes on the prize and push forward. It helps that we are in the last quarter of the year. All of the earning apps including Swagbucks are very generous this time of the year.
