WAG + Extra Income Fund Deposit!!

April 4th, 2009 at 03:59 pm

On my way to work I decided to stop at Walgreen's since I drive right by it. I got items worth $6.77 for only $0.28!! I bought:

One a Day Multivitamin Drink Mix
Chapstick 100% Naturals Lip Butter
Skintimate Cream Shave

I will get $1.49 rebate on the One a Day + I got $5 RR on the other two items!


I'm depositing $359.80 to the extra income fund for the week:

Saturday income.....$ 329.27
Refund checks.......$ 13.10
March interest......$ 7.41
Cell phone sale.....$ 10.00
Found money.........$ 0.02

That brings the account to $3,109.53.

Have a great evening!!

Interest + Cell Phone Check

April 3rd, 2009 at 03:03 pm

I earned $7.41 in interest from my various accounts in March, so I will add that to my extra income fund.

Yesterday I received a $10 check in the mail from selling an old cellphone at sellmyoldcellphone.com. I no longer needed it and it was an older model so I figured I could get a few dollars for it. I have some other cellphones that I plan on donating to a charity.

So another $17.41 towards the extra income deposit for the week!

Tire savings, Interest, etc.

March 1st, 2009 at 06:05 am

Friday after work I went to have the tires mounted on my car. I have been shopping around both tire centers and online tire businesses for a few weeks. I called a Goodyear center and got a quote of $600 (including mounting/installing) + tax for 4 tires= $636, which was way out of line. After comparing about 4 online sites, I decided that discounttiredirect.com had the best prices on the 80K warranty tires that I wanted + offered price matching & free shipping. So I called a local installer listed on the website. I thought I might have to have the tires delivered to me and then transport them to the local shop for installation. When I called the shop, they offered to purchase the tires from Discount Tire Direct (matching the same price I was quoted online) & have them delivered there so I wouldn't have to bother with taking them there after I received them.

The tires ended up costing $508.80 including tax & installation-$25 rebate from Goodyear=$483.80. So by going with this option as opposed to the dealership I saved $127.20 ($636 dealership cost - $508.80 purchase online & local installer). I would have gotten the $25 rebate at the dealership also so I didn't figure that in the savings!

I earned $2.97 interest on money in the extra income fund for February, so I updated that info on the side bar.

Have a nice frugal day!

Weekly Deposit Update

Today I stopped at Sheetz on the way home from work to fill up gas tank and found a dime inside the store near an ATM.

I also got another refund check in the mail for $9.25 today.


This week I am depositing $377.53 to the extra income fund:

Saturday income- $348.71
Refund checks- $ 26.24
Coupons sold on refund
site- $ 2.45
Found money- $ 0.13

Have a great evening everyone!

Small Contribution to the Extra Income Fund

February 13th, 2009 at 07:44 pm

This week I only have a small amount to add to the extra income savings account--$11.20!!

$ 8.00- Survey income
$ 2.50- Refund check
$ 0.70- Found money

Usually every other week I have minimal money to put in this account because I get paid from both my Saturday jobs the same week.

Friday Update

February 13th, 2009 at 05:26 pm

I found more money today. At Wal-mart I found a nickel. In the locker room at work again I found a dime and 2 pennies.


I got a free coupon I must have signed up for online for any Suave product. It is only dated until 02/28/09, so I want to be sure to use it.


I got a GC code from a survey company for $5 for Amazon via an email.

I will add the found money and survey income to my extra income fund for the week.

Have a great evening!


February 8th, 2009 at 08:10 am

Since the last update, I am adding $530.20 to my extra income fund.

Saturday job income.......$470.98
Interest income (Jan.)....$ 6.85
Refund checks.............$ 17.37
Lawn tractor sale.........$ 35.00


So that is my start for February.

Small Extra Income Deposit

February 1st, 2009 at 05:43 am

I didn't have too much in the way of extra income this week. Just a couple of refund checks totaling $3.97, so I will deposit that into the savings account.

I hope next week brings in more extra income.

The total for January in this account is $881.61.

Have a good Sunday!

Microsoft rebate................$181.25

Sunday Update

January 25th, 2009 at 07:15 am

Yesterday after work I stopped at the grocery store to pick up some fresh fruit/veggies. I think I got some pretty good deals on most items:

Baby carrots 2 lb. $2.00 each
Avocados (4) $0.68 each
Radishes 2 lb. $2.00 each
Pears $1.00/lb.
Apples $1.00/lb.
Cucumbers (2) $0.68 each
Pineapple (1) $2.84
Tomatoes $1.58/lb.

DD has been on a health kick lately. I never have bought much in the way of junk food (chips, ice cream, etc.) Maybe once every couple of months. I can easily do without that. Another thing I don't eat much of is meat. It seems most days I eat fruits/veggies, cheese, nuts, yogurt, etc. (especially for lunches & snacks) and I am satisfied with that. I also got some turkey burgers, ground beef, eggs, and a few other items. I spent $40 for groceries.

I also stopped at the car wash to remove the salt from my car. Spent $8 there.

I filled my car with gas where I commute to work on Saturdays since it is less expensive there--$1.73/gal. It is $1.85 where I live. So a savings there of $0.12/gal. Filled the tank for $16.25.


I got another rebate check in the mail today from Zantac for $5, which will go towards savings.

Have a nice Sunday!

Extra Income Fund Deposit Update

I am adding the following funds for this week to my extra income savings:

$280.00 Working interview income
$ 10.24 Coupons sold on refunding site

Adding $$ to savings for the week!

January 11th, 2009 at 02:30 pm

I have the following funds to add to the extra income account:

$221.64 Saturday job
$ 2.54 Refund check
$224.18 Total

I didn't deplete the whole amount in this account since I am using the same one that I used to save to pay off the last CC. So I have $8.39 in there.

I've updated my sidebar with some information and am going to try to meet my goal of $8,000 for 2009 for this type of income.

Mystery Shop $

January 7th, 2009 at 05:06 pm

I did a mystery shop a little over a week ago for an oil change at a car dealership. Today I noticed that the reimbursement of $38.64 was deposited into my account. I still am waiting on the shopper's fee. This mystery shopping company pays them separately for whatever reason.

I think this is the quickest I have gotten reimbursed from this company, so it was a nice surprise.

I will add this amount to my weekly deposit for extra income savings account. I need to make a section in my sidebar to keep track of this account now that the CC debt is over with!
