Another Productive Day!

February 13th, 2013 at 02:10 am

Had another heavy day of work and while I really should be getting some work done tonight, I am too mentally drained. I will be looking to catch up tomorrow.

Today, I was able to knock off a lot of my to-do list:

- Ran Swagbucks app on my phone to earn 50 points
- Did Swagbucks searches
- Read mypoints & inbox dollars emails
- Confirmed B&B appointment
- Cleaned the kitchen
- Prepped food for work tomorrow
- Folded & put away laundry
- Listed 10 items on Craigslist/local Facebook yardsale network
- Filed away paperwork that has been sitting around
- Cleared off bed
- Made dinner at home
- Snuggled with the cats
- Watched Pretty Little Liars and Lying Game (guilty pleasure!)

I am working on finding any and all extra money to pay off my lowest balance credit card ASAP. My goal is June. With my current payments to it, the balance will be approximately $1650. So prepare for me to get creative!

Partially Lazy Sunday

The boyfriend & I used a Groupon for brunch today ($10 out of pocket.

Afterwards, I hit up CVS (new to the area) for a prescription transfer. It was $4.39 with my HSA card. I earned a $25 gift card due to their matching a prescription transfer coupon from Walgreens.

I then turned around and used $4.99 for a specific musical Valentine's day card. The rest will be used for toiletries when needed. The $20 I had in my toiletries envelope is going to my ING Savings.

I spent $13.90 on fruits/veggies at the Farmer's market and $3 at the store.

Arriving home, I made lunch, pasta salad for the next 2 days lunches, prepped work breakfasts & am set to not spend at work the next few days. Woot!

My tax refund already deposited & I am transferring to my ING savings. I wanted to put it directly to debt, but since contemplating a job chance, I am holding off and stockpiling money. Once the transiton goes through, I will put all the funds directly at the debt.

Tonight, I watced free Redbox movie, watched some DVR and did some cleaning. Nice & relaxing. Watching the Walking Dead premier now!
