$250 Savings Challenge - Update

Thursday, November 1, 2007

Wow, it's been a while. I've been collecting my change and putting it to one side. My groceries have been virtually fully spent lately, but petrol is still coming in under budget, despite 2-3 trips to the next town a week, and a big trip the week before into the "city"

Coin savings: $46.55
Petrol savings: $45.00
Total: $91.55

New challenge total: $160.45

    I really need to do this. DH just rang me and said he has another night of doof doof work this week (being nightclub DJ) so extra moola. Need to start saving instead of blowing it just because it is there!!

    I'm paying off my laptop at $25 per week, once that's done I plan to put that money into a money box that can only be opened with a can opener.

    Thanks for the motivation guys :-)

    Kelley, feel free to jump in with your own challenge. I started with $250 because that was how much my exercise bike cost me.

    Ali, I haven't earmarked this money for anything, although it will probably go towards the holiday the kids and I are taking at the end of the month. I'm saving a lot of my Tupperware money as well, but an extra $250 if I can make it would be super nice :-)
