Continuing to see some progress! Success is ahead!
Little by little, we are making progress with our financial goals. Thanks to M-Turk, I was able to send another $40 to our Visa card. As I’ve mentioned before, this is the credit card we are working vigorously hard at paying off so we can take full advantage of a balance transfer offer. With the pending transfer of $1500 to a zero percent card and the $40 from yesterday, the balance will be down to $2266. Although the offer is good through November 17, I would like to see this transfer happen sooner than later. Every day we delay, we are paying that much more in interest.
Still waiting on the zero percent transfer to take place. The offer said it could take 7-10 business days, so hopefully, by next week this will be complete. Again, it is all about how much this is costing us in interest. In today’s world, it makes no sense that this takes so long. I know. I’m impatient!
Yesterday I received my $25 Lowes gift card earned via Swagbucks. We are now up to $150 in gift cards, all which will be used to offset the cost of a needed snowblower. I still need to check and see how much in hotel rewards my Hubby may have earned. He has a corporate lodging card and not all hotels (The Best Western chain in particular) give both the benefit of the hotel discount along with earning points. Since we don’t pick up the tab for his hotel stays, we are just thankful for whatever rewards he does earn.
I listed 10 (yes 10!) items on eBay yesterday. It isn’t my favorite platform on which to sell, but if it makes us a little extra money, I’ll do it. I also have some Fall items I may list in a week or two. My thanks go out to Intrepid Debt Blog for the push to get these items listed.
I sent off four boxes for my side business. Right now I am mostly rolling my earnings in preparation for the upcoming holiday season as in doing so I’ll net a bigger profit. Having this business has also been extremely helpful when it comes to our tax burden as there are so many write-offs.
I cashed my check from working the elections. I netted a little over $200, which all goes into our sinking fund. Our entire marriage we’ve always struggled with our higher irregular bills during the Winter months. This year I am determined to be better prepared to handle them.
The coupons from Purina came in the mail. I wasn’t sure what they would send but figured any amount would save us a few dollars. They sent four $1 coupons. I’m good with it because that is $4 that I no longer have to spend. Every little bit helps.
I put in three hours at my very part time job. Earnings are not huge, but again, every little bit helps.
Little by little, we are making progress. With getting these interest rates lowered, I feel much more positive about our journey.
