    Wordless Wednesday

    Setting Financial Goals

    I think that it is easy to get overwhelmed by credit card debt. I think that if you do not sit down and list all of your bills and what you owe, it is easy to just trick yourself into thinking that you are doing better financially than you really are.

    I totally understand that debt can just happen-believe me I understand! But I feel like until you sit down and have an exact number in front of you and say it out loud to yourself, or a family member or friend. You are not ready to make a change- and that change being to get rid of your debt.

    I know that it is hard, and you wonder where is this money going to come from to pay the minimum balance, let alone the whole bill. But believe me, it is possible. That is why I started this blog, I wanted to show people that you can save a lot of money- with out a lot of effort, and certainly without changing your life style!

    I think that writing down goals is a great way to hold yourself accountable for meeting your deadlines. It by no means has to just involve credit card debt.

    You can set goals for:
    Paying off debt
    Savings account balances
    Making big purchases-a TV, a car, a house, a vacuum!
    Taking Classes
    Living a healthier life

    I am going to be making up a list of goals for myself in the next few days- just across the board goals that I plan on completing within the next 6 months. Please let me know if you have set any goals for yourself... having a little support helps!

    My Points... earning gift cards

    I figured this was worth reposting, because I just got my $25 gift card to CVS from My Points last week- this Gift Card is great because it keeps my out of pocket expense for my CVS trips at zero! This gift card was totally free, just had to earn enough points. It was about 3200 points. I now currently have 2045 points, so I should be able to get another CVS giftcard or any other giftcard worth $25 within a month.

    My points is a site I've been using for a few months now. Basically all you do is sign up, and they send you a few emails a day and once you click on the ad within the email you get 5 points or more. They also email you short surveys that are worth 50points or more! These points add up and you can cash them in for giftcards!

    For example:
    A starbucks $10 giftcard is 1,550 points
    A panera $10 giftcard is 1,500 points
    A gap $25 giftcard is 3,350 points

    Note: I have never once had any issues with spam or anything else from clicking on these emails. It is super easy to do, especially while watching tv :)

    Also, I recommend getting a new email address that you use only for things you sign up for online. That way you aren't filling your personal inbox with random emails!

    Amazon carseat deal!

    Recaro ProRIDE Convertible Car Seat, Blue Opal
    Here is a great deal... Now through April 30, get $30 off at checkout on the Recaro ProRIDE convertible carseat  (in your choice of five colors.)

    Enter promo code RECARMM3 at checkout to apply the discount.

    Always nice to have a great deal on a high safety rated carseat!

    Double Coupons....

    I was just sitting here, thinking about how nice it would be if the grocery stores around here (Albany, Ny) would double coupons....

    How nice it would be to save all that extra money on food. As it stands now I basically rarely use coupons at the grocery store, shocking I know! I use them at Rite Aid and CVS and Target of course, but I need to try and use them more at the grocery store. Just hard to find ones for products I actually want to buy :)

    But since all of the grocery stores near my parents double coupons (Acme, Giant, ect) I will be doing some couponing there when I go for a visit in May... until then I will just put those little coupon gems off to the side and hope there are some great deals to be had in May!
