Last year I had a Debt Snowflake Challenge and “found” an additional $7,499.25 to apply to our debts.
The last time I had a Debt Snowflake Challenge post was back in August, 2012. However, several of you mentioned missing this post, and now that my husband and I have the gazelle intense goal of paying off my student loan by August 31, 2013, I decided it was a good time to bring back the Debt Snowflake Challenge.
Here’s how it works:
We inspire each other by sharing how we “found” extra money to put on our debts. If you have a blog and wrote a post about it, please link up. If you don’t have a blog, just leave a comment stating what you did this week to find extra money to put on your debt.
We had a garage sale and sold quite a bit of our outgrown baby gear and some kids’ clothes. I didn’t sell as much as I would like, but we did make a good dent in our “stuff.”
Garage Sale = $116.28
This week we were able to snowflake $116.225 on the student loan. I figured out that we need to pay an extra $108 a week to pay off the student loan by August 31st, so we exceeded our target goal. Over two weeks, we are now averaging $113.14 a week, or $339.43 for the challenge so far.
Now it’s your turn. Link up your progress. Let’s inspire each other!
