$20K Update - Paid off laptop loan

November 19th, 2011 at 11:21 am

We paid off our laptop loan...it was 12 months at 0% interest, so it is time to pay it off now before the interest hits. That was the last 0% loan we had due. Now back down to just the mortgage again. Also had my Bingo tips for the week.

Have you decided what you're doing with the bingo money?

November 19th, 2011 at 08:19 am

GusitaRenker asked:
Have you decided what you're doing with the bingo money?


No, I still haven't put a for sure answer on that.....right now I am leaning towards saving it for a new to us car when one of ours dies. One of our cars has over 140K miles and the other has over 110K miles. I am just always thinking how stupid I would feel if I put all this extra money towards the mortgage and then we had to get an autoloan. I would feel like an idiot! LOL So that is the though right now for the Bingo money.....for now I still just have it all at home. I plan to get some things moved around at ING soon to make a "Bingo" account.
Thanks for asking!

Normally we don't get our tips till Monday, but someone called in sick today and they called me to see if they could come in. So I picked up about 5 hours, and while I was there I was able to get my tips. I was really excited about the total! I am almost to $300 already with Bingo Money!

$20K Update - First Bingo Paycheck

October 14th, 2011 at 03:01 pm

Got my first paycheck from Bingo..I was hoping it would be $100, so I was very happy to find out it was $156.29! So that was a nice surprise!

I was planning to put a lot more in savings this paycheck, but we still seem to be playing catch up from this summer. Looking ahead I think it will be figured out withint he next 2-4 weeks. In the meantime we keep trying to keep our CC low for the month. We are at $700 and have 2 weeks left...trying to stay under $1300, so are pretty close to on track.

First tips from Bingo

September 28th, 2011 at 04:33 pm

Well I only worked one shift for about 6 1/2 hours and I got to go pick my tips up on Monday. $23.69! Not bad! They are shared tips and then divided by the number of hours you work. With tips I am making a little over $11 an hour, which I am happy with for an easy part time job. Smile So for now I am just going to save that money seperate till I decide for sure what I want to do with it. I am only going to add this to the $20K Challenge in $5 increments so that it doesn't get confusing, so I just added $20 to that instead of $23.69.

Tips total - $23.69
Wage total - $0
Total Bingo Money - $23.69

Still can't decide if I want to save this for a snowblower or to the EF, or the mortgage savings account.....hmmm......oh well no hurry on what to decide.

First day at Second Job

September 25th, 2011 at 04:22 pm

Yesterday was my first day at my second job at the Bingo hall. It was super fun! It is definitely a crazy enviroment and I was beat when I got home, but I think the job will be a good fit because I like a fast paced enviroment.
I caught on very quickly, though Bingo is a lot more confusing then I thought it would be.....lots of different kinds of games and different packages you can buy for different costs.
Tomorrow I can pick up my first set of tips, probably won't be much at all as it is shared tips and then divided by the number of hours you worked, and I only worked 7 hours this week....but something is better then nothing and I am still trying to decide exactly what savings I want this going towards....

Second Job!

September 8th, 2011 at 09:02 pm

It's time to get really serious about meeting the $20K challenge and bringing us one step closer to paying off our mortgage. So I got a second job today!
I wanted something easy, non-stressful, flexible hours, close to my home, and I didn't want to dress up for work. Soooo.....I am going to be a cashier at a Bingo Hall. The pay is not great, but you do make tips so that will increase the hourly wage. Also we get to pick up the cash tips once a week, so that will be nice to see our total increasing everyweek. I am hoping to work about 20 hours a week. I figured while DH was gone with cross country this would be a good thing to keep me busy and help us meet our goals. EVERY PENNY IS GOING TO SAVINGS OR THE MORTGAGE! Smile
Tomorrow I have to go pick up my gaming license from the police station which will cost me $25, but if I stay at the job for 90 days I will get reimbursed that fee. My hours will normally be 5:30 - 9:00 when I work week nights. I think it will be easy and fun, and I am looking forward to hitting $20K!!
