Savings and found money

December 22nd, 2011 at 02:17 pm

This past week I saved $6.50 with grocery coupons and $30.00 with coupons Christmas shopping.

Also found a reimbursement check in my glove box for $15.00. I had forgotten it was there....that is so not like me. Anyway it was void after 180 days. Luckily it was day 177.

My challenge total is now $489.00

On another note, my 14 yerar old daughter made a delicious hamburger stew today for lunch. It was a crockpot recipe but she adapted it to stovetop. It was a success. Everyone loved it and that is hard to do in this family. If anyone wants the recipe let me know.

I was checking my savings accounts today and noticed I have $151.44 in my vacation fund left over from last year. I am adding that to my challenge money as that is what my challenge is for.

Also adding $10.95 that I will be saving today with grocery coupons and $112.00 for coins that I rolled today and will be depositing.

Challenge total....$349.39

Today's savings

December 6th, 2011 at 12:31 pm

It has been over three months since I have been here.

I'm going 2 start my $20 challenge now and carry it til summertime. Hopefully it will pay for most of our vacation.

I saved $20 on a prescription for my son using a coupon I found in a magizine. I was deducted from my copay leaving me paying only $10.00 for 100 glucose strips. Yay!

I saved $25.75 at WM with price-matching and coupons, and $9.25 at CVS with coupons and ECB's.

I feel as if money is slipping through my fingers lately so hopefully logging my savings will help keep me more accountable.

Challenge total including the $20 to start with is $75.00. Not too bad for one day....
