I said i would keep everyone up to date on how my Challenge is going. I am currently on week 10 of my savings challenge which my Challenge total is $55. I have also saved an "overage" balance as well - if i had extra change i dropped it into my "After 8" tin and saved it. I've saved $131.81 over the last 10 weeks doing this. My current grand total is $186.81. I plan to use my overage to offset the higher cost weeks during December and January. I find it quite exciting to think that I've saved that much in 10 weeks and Haven't missed the money from my budget.

That is great. I let my earnings online add up on PayPal for my money that I save but do not miss. In January I pulled almost three hundred dollars for traveling and taking time off work. I have $150 and some change. We had more money between hubby and I but a car ate it. Darn it.

Dont you just hate when the car eats money! Mine keeps eating money on me and now I'm thinking the fuel pump in it is dying.

Definitely, and hubby likes buying more. We got one very cheaply to replace one that needed over $2000 worth of work, and it is an upgrade, but it needed some money, so again, mine is gone.

This is really great, the way you are saving money, I save all my money from all my earning web sites, and the money I have here at home, I like saving my money because I am trying to save up money to, get what I want and I know, the only way to do that is to, save up my money.

Good luck! My online earnins tend to end up going towards a few months of payments for my netflix account

That's awesome! I don't carry bills on me or change. I would love to be able to save.

I've been letting myself have 25 dollars a week for spending money out of my account as some places in town dont take debit here.
