It was a really great week for my Disney fund…
$0.52 – Bought a Sams Club / Walmart gift card from a friend before we made a big household purchase at Sams. She told me she would throw in the $0.52 balance on the card for free for my fund. What a great friend!
$5 – I owed a different friend $5 for running to the store for me when I was stuck at home with sick kids and they needed G2 Gatorade. She told me not to worry about paying her back and put it in my fund instead. What a great friend!
$8 – My daughter wanted to spend some of her allowance on a new MP3 album. I had accumulated MP3 credits for FREE, so she gave me $8 and I used the credits and put the money into the fund.
$3.31 – Spare Change
$5.48 – Sam’s Club charged me twice for an item a couple weeks ago. I called them immediately but didn’t make it to the store until this week.
$4.18 – Earned $0.25 per gallon FuelPerks from Winn Dixie. Used it to fill up hubby’s truck. I took $4.18 out of the gas budget and put it into the Disney fund.
$64.52 – Hubby and I both used to work with a company that had a minimum $50 payout (this was early 2009). They finally added a Paypal option with no minimum so I was able to cash out both our accounts this week! Woohoo!!
$2 – Got another CVS survey (sign up here) but this time I didn’t qualify. But I got $2 for trying, so woohoo!
