Where to start?

Yes this is always my problem “Where to start?”.  I have so many ideas and things that I want to do! Yes I get these ideas and they sound so good at the time but then –  I never write them down or say I will do them later!  Have you ever heard the saying “ I can sing all the lyrics to any 80’s songs but when I walk in a room a forget why I did”. Okay so you get the picture.

Today I am going to start with what I wanted to do and partly did in January!  Start a blog.  My first Idea that got me starting this was wanting to “Save and earn money for Christmas”.

So this is what I started off doing in January!

“Saving and earn money for Christmas”

I know a lot of you would love to smack me, I know it is only July.  But I have found that I have saved quite a bit so far! I wish I had posted this sooner for everyone to join in with me to see how much we could all save and compare.

Here is just a little of what I have been able to do with one of my ideas: “Save and earn money for Christmas”  I start this the week after Christmas when I was broke, feeling the humbug of the holidays and bills from Christmas were coming in the mail! I started surfing the net looking for ways to make extra money but mostly what I found were scams or just did not work for me.  So I started a list of things I decided to sign up for on the web, tracking them weekly and other ways I could save.  Here is my  brief list of what I have been able to do and really not a lot of extra time involved. (But don’t get me wrong you do have to spend a little time to make it happen).

The below is as of July 1.

$700 in a Christmas Club savings account. (This will grow until November).

I have $100 in survey money.

I have enough points from a site I log on to daily to get 4  – $25 gift cards to places like Target, Walmart, BestBuy, Amazon and so on. (This one will also still grow).

I have also earned a total of $211.64 in Ebates that is in my paypal account!

From Emails that I click on I have enough points to get 2 –  $25 gift card to either a store or a restaurant.

And last but not least I have $125 on my Walmart Saving Catcher Account.

So my idea to “Save and Earn Money for Christmas” so far has me $1286.64 ahead of the game plan.

In my next few post I plan on telling you how “Saving and Earning Money for Christmas”.  These are things that worked for me. Another Idea for saving and doing ahead gifts “Hint” Canning.  I am also sure I will throw in a recipe or two and more of my ideas as they pop in my head!

Wish me luck!
