One more thing done...

October 23rd, 2006 at 01:50 pm

No, I still have not tallied my coupon savings. I am really interested in this number but I just haven't gotten around to it. (Maybe I'm just lazy.) Between working 2 jobs and trying to get some quality time with my 2 year old, some things just constantly end up at the bottom of my priority list.

I did open a separate acct. Some call this thier $20 challenge money. I'm calling it my SAHM account. It will motivate me to add to it and I'm hoping it will prove to DH that YES we can afford for me to sah if we sell the house. OK, it only has $43.99 in it right now ($38.99 from rebates and a $5 rebate check). But I know I put some other $$ into our 'regular' acct that needs to be transferred. I'm thinking that will bring it up to around $100. That's not including any coupon $$. I don't know how much that will be but I think it will be enough to almost double it. I don't exactly what this $$ will be earmarked for......but we can worry about that part later. THe point is to show myself (and DH) that there are plenty of easy ways to save and I want to show him the actual dollars saved to prove it!

    I love things on paper in black (blue, green whatever) and white. I didn't realize I would love to watch the numbers!

    I think that is a great idea. It is always fun to watch your little savings grow into bigger savings.

    When you are a stay at home mom you can do surveys, too. I get about one paid survey a month that I qualify for from each of the companies I am signed up with that pay straight cash. This month I have at least $40 of survey money coming in.
