Today I am battling against self inflicted discouragement.
Since last Friday here are my money moves:
Money In :
06/15/2020 : $10.00 sold an item on Facebook Marketplace.
06/19/2020: $26.76 Shelter in Place Payback from Esurance. I transferred this money to savings in an attempt to have something to pay towards car insurance once my six month policy is up.
Money Out :
06/13/2020 : $0
06/14/2020 : $20.00 I purchased a Jayne Seymour Open Heart Angel Pendant necklace. I have wanted one for years! Sometimes you have to treat yourself and make your own dreams come true!
06/15/2020 : $5.60 at Walmart for Yarn crafting supplies (I used my WM gift card balance.)
$.35 in taxes for blue mascara. (I used coupons to pay for the item and almost got it for free!!!!!!)
$16.70 out of my Paypal balance for health and beauty items ordered from Elf.
6/16/2020 : $126.00 for our electric bill
$9.73 monthly Netflix subscription
06/17/2020 : $7.49 Dollar Tree
06/18/2020 : $37.31 at Angel’s Diner
06/19/2020 : $0 Though I am considering using my Walmart gift card balance to purchase a Wind Machine brand fan. It is 87 degrees in this house. I will not be firing up the oven. The AC and fridge are both on the fritz, and getting my landlord to do anything is like having a root canal without anesthetic.
To make money, I have scanned receipts using Imoney, Fetch, and Ibotta. I also continue to use Swagbucks when I can remember. I loomed a doll hat out of yarn. I have a second one in the works. I created one anklet, and promoted my business on social media.
I contributed to a post here. There was no pay for this, but I would contribute a thousand times over for resources like the highlighted article contains. Give her a follow she has great great mental health resources.
I continue pushing through a very slow because of me written book review.
I have not tried any other ways to make money. This is where I am at so far this month. I have put my wants and desires on hold and I have the money as far as I know to finish paying the bills for the month. The diner was an unexpected expense, but my husband was having a bad day (self created) but I was trying to keep any flames he might be feeling from turning into a full blown fire. It was a great time, and I really couldn’t afford it but it will be ok, and it is an experience we both have never had.
Trying not to melt,
In plain sight,
