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.

Our Progress

Last week I cashed out 5,000 Swagbucks for a $50 PayPal deposit.  The money landed in my account yesterday, and as soon as I saw it, I put it on my student loans.  Swagbucks is one of my favorite, painless ways to find money to snowflake.  I just use Swagbucks as my search engine when I search the Internet.

Swagbucks PayPal Deposit = $50

When I was going through our junk for the garage sale, I found some of my son’s outgrown clothes in fair condition as well as two brand new with tags pairs of Gap shorts.  I sold those on eBay and made $30.  I already had a little bit more money in my eBay PayPal account, so after fees, I was left with $41 to apply to my student loan.

eBay Sales = $41

This week we were able to snowflake $91 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 were close to our target goal.

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