July Snowflake Update

August 2nd, 2013 at 02:11 pm

Here are the final numbers for July:

Swagbucks $75.00
Credit Card Rewards 75.00
Insurance Co Refund 24.12
Doctor Copay Refund 30.00
Found Change .15
Ebay Sales Proceeds 14.60
Selling Coupons 3.50

Total $222.37


This brings the total for the year to $435.47. July has clearly been my best month in 2013!! Although I haven't been updating my snowflake income on here, I have been tracking on a money app on my phone. I do plan to update on here at least monthly now.

The question now is "how do I allocate this money?". Definitely a large percentage should go to CC debt. I do want to start saving some money for a new dishwasher, and don't want to take it out of my EF. The appliance is still functional; however, the latch doesn't always stay closed and the dishes do not get clean consistently anymore. I'm estimating it is about 15-20 years old because it was here when I purchased the house.

Thanks so much CCF for inspiring me to get more involved in Swagbucks! Even though I've probably been a member for about a year, it hasn't been until the last couple of months that I've devoted more time and effort to it. My favorite ways of earning Swagbucks are surveys and shopping online (mostly hotel reservations).

    You did great this month, and VERY well on Swagbucks, too! Maybe consider WHEN you want to get a dishwasher and the cost. If it is $400 and you want it by the end of the year, you save $80 of your earnings for five months. The rest of your snowflakes could go to cc debt!!

    To keep your DW functioning until replacement, small maintenance projects might help. The Sears [Kenmore] installer reminded me to alternate DW products for better results. We fill the Rinse Dispenser with vinegar to keep the interior shiny.

    Thanks for the advice CCF and snafu! I'll have to try those tips with the DW.
