Busy Saving!

Oh my goodness how busy it has been! My apologies for no posts for the last few weeks, I can't even believe it has been so long since the last post. Time has completely flown by this month, but here's an update!

A while back I mentioned I was going to be starting with Pampered Chef, and man I feel I've started with a BANG! So far I've had three shows submitted and have earned over $650 in commission, and $200 Pampered Chef dollars to spend on whatever products or supplies my little heart desires. And I am having a blast! I get to cook, drink, and socialize with so many different groups of people, and then I get perks of commission and bonuses out of that. Cooking, drinking, and socializing, hardly things I'm any good at! I love that I can squeeze parties into an evening or afternoon and then earn some extra savings on the side. So great!

So how has all the saving been going? Amazing! We're so proud of how far we've come in 5 months of strict budgeting and deliberate saving, and we're feeling the rewards. We've also switched to an accelerated biweekly mortgage payment schedule, which may not necessarily be a direct saving, but it gets us in one extra payment a year and will, in the big picture, help us pay off the mortgage quicker. Oh yes!

Here's to your savings and your adventures as well. Keep up the good work, it's so rewarding when you see it paying off! I can see blinds in this house by the end of the summer!!!

Happy Saving!
