Woo Hoo!

May 14th, 2010 at 06:24 pm

When I renewed my apartment lease, I was entered into a drawing to win $500. And I won! It is not cash, it's a $500 credit on next month's rent -- just as good!

I've decided to turn it into a challenge for myself. I will try to match it and make a $1000 deposit into savings next month. That won't be easy, but it's not impossible.

For Mother's Day, I got a $50 Macy's gift card from one of my sons. So I thought I'd go and get me something this weekend. His intention was for me to get something to wear, since I'm losing weight. You can bet I'll be checking out the clearance racks! I've never been to the Macy's in this area, so it will be a bit of an adventure.

    That is great news! $500 leads to a nice budget boost, no matter how they give it to you. If you approach your goal with dedication, I am sure that you will have some insurance of matching that amount in your savings. Good luck!
