easy to spend, hard to make

May 18th, 2006 at 02:22 pm

I've been thinking about what my goal is for this $20 challenge. I'd like to have $1000.00 saved by the end of the year, and there are a thousand different things I could use the money for. First and foremost, however, is paying down debt. It doesn't make sense to me to put money away and continue to pay high interest rates on money owed. So, from now on, I am splitting all my saved or earned money 50/50 between saving for the challenge and paying off debt. It's so easy to spend, but so hard to make.

I am currently preparing for a flea market this weekend - wish me luck. It cost $20.00 for a table, and I have some handcrafted items as well as household stuff to sell. I will let you all know how I do.

Almost forgot - $30 in software rebates came in the mail the other day, so $15 will go into the savings.

Total Challenge savings: $73.00

    You're doing good on your challenge. That's a good idea, dividing money between savings and debt.
