End of Month Summary

July 27th, 2019 at 12:28 pm

I worked hard this month to save more for next month, as I do not get an August paycheck (I get 11 paychecks a year).

My activity thus far:
*Earned $193.65 through selling items I no longer needed.
*Treated my second job like I am business for myself, bringing in extra hours for me
*Opened up a credit card account with $500 bonus (won't see this money, though, for 3-4 months)
*Opened a checking account with $400 bonus (in 3-4 months)

There are still a few more days to make some extra cash. I have a Varidesk (a sit-stand desk) that I picked up at the thrift store for $12.00. I listed it today for $80. If I don't get any bites this week I will drop it down significantly. I don't like holding on to items too long. It would be great to sell that before the end of the month and add it to my stash!

In addition to cleaning out my house for things to sell, I put myself out there to pick up more hours at my part-time job. That is what I am building so that I can go solo and leave my full-time gig in a few years, if I choose to do that.

The account bonuses were only a little bit of a pain, because I had to complete paperwork to change my direct deposits. But those are large enough bonuses to justify the trouble, I believe.

I still need to post my financial goals. I really need to write them down on paper. I'm a visual girl.

    Nice work!! Do you flip items you purchase from thrift stores often?

    Good idea to plan since you don't get a check in August.

    I usually don't flip items from thrift stores because it seems like a lot of work for little payback. But I couldn't resist the opportunity with the desk. It remains to be seen if it was a good purchase or not...
