Last year I had a Debt Snowflake Challenge and “found” an additional $7,499.25 to apply to our debts.

This year my husband and I have the gazelle intense goal of paying off my student loan by August 31, 2013.  In the past three weeks of the Debt Snowflake Challenge, we’ve “found” $339.43 to put on the student loan.

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.

Our Progress

I went through several old books and cookbooks that we’re not using thanks to the Internet and put them on sale at half.com.  I sold one a few weeks ago and just got paid this week.

Half.com Sale = $24.70

After paying my eBay fees, I had a small bit of residual money in my eBay PayPal account, so I cashed that out.

Remaining Pay Pal Balance Cash Out = $10.30

This week we were able to snowflake $35 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 four weeks, we are now averaging $93.60 a week, or $374.43 for the challenge so far.

We still have more “stuff” to sell downstairs, but I haven’t had time because I’ve been so busy!  It’s on my agenda for this weekend.

Now it’s your turn.  Link up your progress.  Let’s inspire each other!
