Let’s start a Christmas Challenge, almost 6 weeks left!
Seating at my desk and looking outside, snowing,colder,get the boots… Think about the winter tires for the car, jackets and what about the Christimas Gift!
Yes, it is this time of the year when we have to think about the gifts we would like to offer and how to proceed in a way you don’t end up with a bad credit card bill. Why not challenge yourself and find ways to save a little something every week to achieve your goal on saving. Saving how much? Let’s choose a number why not 500$, this sound as a faisable option.
Look at how easy it could be done with just some simple actions from your part…
Have it automated, to have money transfered from one account to a saving account. You receive your paycheck or any revenu, you make sure it is transfered on the spot. There is no chance you touch this money, it is only for your Christmas project.
- See how you could budget your finances in a way to allow you to save more than you think possible.
- Cut the morning coffee (save 3-5$ each day) This is a good 15$ a week.
- Organise your commute to save on gas. (Maybe you could save 10-20$ a week)
- Cut the weekly restaurant ( Save around 30-50$ a week)
- Save on Take Out if possible ( 20-30$ a week)
- Many more options…
Only by choosing to cut small expenses per week ,you could save a tone of money per week. In general we are talking about 50-80$ or more per week in saving.
See my Saving board below, you could even save it to help you stay on course.
Don’t like the idea of saving money.
- Too long
- No space on your budget
- Time consuming
- Make money instead of saving
- and many more concerns…
Presenting you with a different option , that could help generate some money in a simple way. Just by following one of my latest article, you should be abble to generate extra money.
It will require time and effort but it is well worthed and since there is not much time left before Christmas. Why not give it a try and see for yourself, how to achieve your goal on having 500$ before the 25 December.You could even look to make more money, it is up to you on deciding how much you want to make.
Here is a sneak peek of my article…
We all have challenges in our lives, money struggles, unexpected situations arriving,so much to deal with sometime. Why not look around the house and see, if we have some articles that we could part ways and make money at the same time.
You coud also use the money to pay some debts, late bills, to get ahead, vacations,your dream watch…You name it but the idea is to take action on what we think could sell and how long do we plan to make it happen. Usually as a good role of thumbs, let’s say a week is a fair time to sell some items.
You could sell your items with:
- Garage sale
- Online (Ebay, Craiglist, Kijiji and even Amazon)
- Local Newspapers
- Tell a friend about a item that maybe could be of good use for them
- Used electronic stores
