Added more to the Challenge today

After picking up my paycheck, when filling out the deposit slip, I rounded out the amount to be deposited. The change I received in return ($15.00) was put into my $20 Challenge. That said, here's my update:

Previous amount: $45.00
Added today: $15.00
Total to date: $60.00


A question of which I would really love to hear a few responses. Many of you have huge chunks of change to your challenge. Where to you "park" your challenge money?

You know I currently keep mine in a large plastic Coke bottle; I don't have enough yet to make an impact on interest earnings. But as the amount grows, I will put it into a high yield savings account...

Saved with coupons after food shopping at Walmart: $5.70

Extra cash in purse added to the "piggy": $4.30

Fresh $20 Challenge start

June 15th, 2008 at 05:20 pm

So, I am back from CA as of the 6th of this month. I had a nice time visiting with my mother and playing tour guide to my daughter. I took her to Seaport Village, Balboa Park, the Viejas Casino in Alpine, and where I went to school. I wish I could have taken her across the Coronado Bay bridge. We would have gone to the Hotel Del Coronado; that's where I went for my senior prom. Time was limited, as well as the cost for going on the bridge. Besides, I wanted to spend as much time visiting with my mother, too.

Anyways, I did put what leftover cash I had into my large plastic Coke bottle *piggy* bank. After adding a few more dollars on my last payday, it's up to exactly $20 - what I have to have in order to start *recording/reporting* here in my blog.

Tomorrow I am going to Target with a Target coupon where I get $10 for getting a new prescription or transferring one from another pharmacy. I plan to get $10 in cash and putting it into my piggybank.

Woohoo!!!!! It may be a fresh start, but it is indeed a start.
