Gooooooooood morning everybody, I hope your weekend treated you well! I *barely* made it through a football game AND a soccer game this weekend….i think i’m getting old :( But that’s neither here nor there. What i’m supposed to be writing about is how easily i can burn through $$$, when i’m not on a challenge or no spend day ;)
I did this by visiting my very good friends, Target, TJ Maxx & Beers & Cheers. The key is to shop when you’re in an extremely good mood and the weather is gorgeous out:
1) Target: Bought 3 CD’s for $35.00. I’ve been wanting all three for a while, and they were all on sale! I originally only went in for one, but you know how it goes. I picked up the new Lupe Fiasco joint (my current fav. artist), the Juno soundtrack (these songs are hilarious!), and a um….don’t laugh now.. a Toby Keith “best of” vol. 2. hahah…what can i say, i’m trying to cross all musical genres ;)
2) Target: Lunch for $12.00. They have pizza hut mini-pizzas there. Can’t go wrong w/ that.
3) TJ Maxx: Picked up a pair of blingin’ sunglasses for $7.99 (while in the check out line mind you) & a present for my brother, $12.99…even though his birthday is a good 4 months away! didn’t see either of these coming.
4) Beers & Cheers: 6 pack of Bud, 6 pack of Sam Adams i think?, and box of wine. don’t judge, box wine is AWESOME. Total came out to about $34 i think.
So what’s that, $100ish i spent in about an hour? Danggggggggg. Oh well, i don’t do it all that much, and i got some really good things. (That’s it J…keep convincing yourself). On top of it all, it made for a super-great saturday. I’m a huge fan of being out and about when the weather is killer.
It’s now time to buckle back down and get ready to save those pennies for the wedding next month! Countdown ticker soon to come, as promised.
Bonus tip: Find a good "balance transfer" offer to help pay off debt faster!
If you’ve been making payment after payment (on time) and still haven't been able to get your debt under control, snatching up a good balance transfer credit card offer may be the ticket to try. That’s where in order to gain your business - credit card companies will let you transfer your existing debt to a new card and let you pay ZERO PERCENT interest on it. Saving you tons every month!
What's the catch? Usually balance transfer cards charge a fee (around 3% of your debt balance) to let you transfer your balance to their 0% interest offer. But we've found a great credit card that will let you do a balance transfer absolutely free. Click here to learn more and see if you qualify!
PS: If you don't trust yourself with another credit card, ignore this! This strategy is to help you get out of debt quicker, not risk adding more to it.
