Shine in 2009 Update

Here is an update on my 2009 goals. Posting updates keeps me accountable! It also serves as a way to share with other moms things that are working for my family:

Christmas 2009 for Free:
~Thanks to Swagbucks I have $176.00 in free gift cards. My goal is to have $700 by November, just in time for some serious online holiday deals.
~My ING Savings account has grown to $240. Whenever I am sent a check for completing surveys, it is deposited into this account. My goal is to have $1000 by Christmas.
Total goal is $1700 – that’s Christmas for a family of 7 plus a birthday here and there! Learn all about surveys HERE.

~My contribution to the monthly family income comes from my blogging earnings. Read how you can earn money blogging HERE. So far this month I have earned over $1400. The biggest earner for me is Logical Media .

~I spend about 4 hours per week clipping and organizing coupons, scanning sale flyers, and formulating my shopping plans for Walgreens, CVS, Target and WalMart. The average savings (as recorded on my receipts) is $207.41 per week. That’s for a family of 7 and includes all stockpile items. It also should be noted that these are retail prices before sales and coupons, so I never had any intention of paying anywhere near this amount! Still – not too shabby. Learn the basics of couponing HERE.
~Make Ahead Meals – I haven’t calculated how much I save by making my meals ahead. But I know it’s substantial. We have snacks and convenience foods in addition to several dinners awaiting us in the freezer so we aren’t inclined to run out for a pizza! These are good recipes too! More on Make Ahead Meals HERE.
