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!
