24 days left...

March 7th, 2006 at 07:33 am

Only 24 full days left this month to reach my $800 goal. I am not throwing in the towel yet, but man, this is NOT going to be easy! Argh! I am scared, lol!

Speaking of 24 - did anyone watch that last night? OMG - I cried at the end. SO SAD! Anyway....

Checked sharebuilder today - still no sign of our two $50 bonuses. Will check again tomorrow.... Also checked Providian for our FICOs - not posted yet! I am so impatient, lol!

Got the Purina Challenge free cat food coupon in the mail yesterday, so that's a good thing. That will save us on our grocery bill this week. I also got my Barnes & Noble and Bed Bath & Beyond GC's for the trials I signed up for. Posted those on Ebay just now. I was shocked to see that someone is charging $3.99 for the INFORMATION on how to get a $20 GC for only $1. I hope no one falls for that. That is just so wrong!

I read on the boards that you can open 4 bank accounts per quarter, so that means I need to open 3 more (for bonuses, of course) before the end of March. I need to talk to hubby about it, but I'm hoping he'll ok me opening them up in his name as well - double bonuses! You could make quite a bit of money that way! Too bad it won't help my totals this month. Sigh....

I did add some money to my challenge today - $25.97 for Ebay profits. That brings my Current Challenge Savings to $176.83. That means I need to make an average of $26 a day for the rest of the month to reach my goal. Not quite sure how I am going to pull that off! If anyone has any ideas, please leave me a comment. I REALLY REALLY want to get to that $800 mark. Speechless Smiley 03920: If I was single I would get a second job in a heartbeat, but hubby's not keen on the idea (unless it's something I can do at home).

    I don't think it's 4 accounts per quarter, I think it's 4 accounts in 3 months. So if you don't open any in January and February, then open four in March, you may have trouble opening 4 more in April. Know what I mean? You're better off shooting to do one per month (and throw an extra one in here and there to get it to 4 in 3 months).

    Note, the 4 in 3 rule is for each social security number, so if hubby agreed to open accounts, too, you could each do 4 in 3 months with no problem...
