Challenge is just that. .

January 30th, 2007 at 02:30 pm

This challenge is proving more difficult than I thought. You all make it seem effortless. Maybe some day it will be. . For now, I have some entries and will continue to look for ways to save and add to my challenge.

I took local roads to work last week and saved $5.00 (it's really 70 cents a day for the toll road but I'm rounding up). Also recycled a toner cartridge and got $3.00 coupon which I used to buy a ream of paper which I desperately needed.

Starting Amount: 72.00
Today's Amount : 8.00
Total: : 80.00

Getting Psyched for the Challenge

January 25th, 2007 at 09:32 am

I have been getting ready to log in with my challenge to date. I have been keeping track over the last week. My goal is to reach $1,500 on a quarterly basis with a final goal amount of $6,000 for the year. Although I always try to be careful with money, somehow bad habits seem to resurface. I have never kept track of my successes of saving money and was sometimes wasteful with the savings. This past week I have taken my coins to be cashed in and will start with that. So, here goes.

Starting amount: $20.00
Today's addition: 52.00
Total: 72.00
