Saving goals

So I’ve finally started to get serious again about my savings goals.  I don’t really have any number goals which makes this all very difficult it’s one of those times were I just went want to save as much as physically possible.  As you guys know we are trying to find a house to buy without a house picked I don’t know what the closing costs are going to be and what may need to be done to the house to get it ready to live in.  So I’m setting up 3 different goals

  1. Someone (who will remain nameless) cracked the screen on my beloved camera, it still works but with the humidity in Florida I don’t know how long it will hold out.  So it needs to be replaced and I don’t really want to spend any money on it.  I’ve been considering taking photos semi professionally and having a working camera is a big part of that.  The camera I want is $399 on Amazon.  So here’s the plan:
    • All loose change will go into the Bud Racing bottle which is already full.  Coinstar will change it into an Amazon giftcard for no fee.
    • Swagbucks, MyPoints, Opinion Outpost, and RewardPort all cash out with Amazon Giftcards and they will all be put towards my camera.
    • If I start a photography venture with the old camera all profits will also go towards the new camera
  2. Goal 2 is to have some money to cover the actual moving expenses and basics like paint, doorknobs, etc when we move.  Again I don’t want this to be money I even notice saving.  The plan for that is really simple on Thursdays I take out a certain amount of money for groceries, gas, etc so instead of saving the extra and going out to dinner or something any extra money will into my adorable house bank and will get deposited once a month in a special account.
  3. The third goal and the biggest is to grow the amount we have saved for closing costs and any larger things that need to be done.  This one might actually take a bit more creative thinking but so far I’ve decided that the debit card (aka the demon easy spender) is coming out of my wallet.  So is the Paypal card with the exception of one tank of gas a week.  I sell stuff on ebay and with my profits I pay for my gas but the rest will be left alone until the end of the month when I’ll transfer the profits to the savings account.
We’ll see how it goes but I have no doubt that I’ll have  2 very helpful savings account and be half way to a new camera by the end of May, now if only we could find a house to spend this money on already.

A good day

The orange trees are in full blossom and they smell wonderful, the windows are open, there is a breeze blowing and my floor is covered in shopping bags.  LOL

There’s only a few days left in the grocery sales but I thought I would share just in case someone else wanted to get in on the deals.

First stop was Winn-Dixie

  • 2 Capri Sun  $2 each with no coupons!!!
  • 3lbs of Beef Tenderloin (I think) BOGO on the packs and I found 2 exactly the same size $6.99
  • Nesquik Strawberry $2.99 had some overage and the boys love this stuff
  • 4 Packs of Premio Sausage these are on sale BOGO and Premio had a BOGO pdf coupon for becoming a fan on facebook so they were FREE
  • Martins Potato Rolls $3.19 for the brats
  • Glade Impressions thingy $9.99 used free coupon
  • 4 Mach3 Disposable Razors on sale for $4.99
    • These are part of the P&G sale to spend $20 and get $5 off your order.  They are counting the presale price of $10.99 and took $10 off my order plus I used BOGO coupons which also took $10.99 off instead of $4.99 so I got lots of overage

In total I spent $6.83 for everything above and saved $93.72 the guy that checked me had to pick his jaw up off the floor after he scanned my card and saw the total.  I’m just soo happy to have the main course for 6 meals and few goodies for the family.  I don’t usually buy caprisuns but I thought I’d splurge a little.  However if I go back to use my other two BOGO razor coupons I’m going to use that overage to either get soda for the yardsale or more meat.

I’ll type up my Publix trip in a bit this is longer than I thought it would be.

We have babies

It’s official spring has sprung and so has the morning dove that thought my window box was a suitable nest.  After getting over being annoyed that I went to plant new flowers and found a bird nesting there I thought of how nice it would be for Shawn to get to watch the process.

Well yesterday momma bird flew off to get some food and look what we saw


That’s Daddy standing watch.  He quickly cleaned out the egg mess, I was surprised to see that he took the shell and flew off quite a ways with it leaving the babies all alone well except for me and hubby standing watching.

005So Happy Spring!!!!  Now back to deals, make sure you get your papers tomorrow there will be coupons.

It’s been awhile

since I preached about Swagbucks but sitting on the couch playing Mario and Sonic Winter Olympics on the Wii tonight got me thinking about it again.  I bought this great game on Amazon a few days ago when it was on sale for about $20 and using my Swagbucks giftcards it cost me absolutely nothing.  It just so happened that I ordered on the last day of my free Amazon Prime Trial so shipping was free too.  I tell you if I could ever monetize this blog better I’d get the Prime in a heartbeat free 2 day shipping just can’t be beat.

So anyways if you haven’t signed up for Swagbucks what’s holding you up?  Feel free to ask me any questions you have about it.  I’ve been a member for quite some time and love the program.  On top of earning free giftcards you can also earn FREE money just for searching the internet, which is probably something you do anyways.

If you are interested in finally signing up click on Swagbucks and get yourself ready to earn free stuff.

Decent Deal at Target

If you print this coupon out for $1 off Ore Ida Potatoes you could get 3 bags of HashBrowns at Target for $3 or if you have access to 2 computers and can print 3 coupons you could get 3 bags for $2.  Not a bad deal for some cheap and easy potatoes.
