$1.21 in spare change
$30 in Target and Publix gift card (took $30 out of our grocery fund and spent these gift card in it’s place. See more about how I add gift cards to my fund).
$25 Disney Store gift card that I purchased with what was left from our gas budget last month (yay for staying at home)
$15 for mileage reimbursement from my husband’s job
$100 from the budget for my son’s tuition. We thought we would have to pay $200 for May but were surprised to find out it was only $100.
$28.15 difference from the power bill (we budgeted $175 and we came in under that, yay!)
$199.36 added to the Disney fund. $1217.84 saved since November 12th, 2011. My goal is $3,000. Likely going in Jan 2013.
I want you to learn how to grow your own fund too! If you are new to couponing, start with the Getting Started Couponing Series, followed by the How To Start Your Fund series. Remember you can use these savings principles to save for anything you want from Disney trips to paying off debt to buying a new television.
