Hello Week 20 of Project Money!  You know I think when Project Money ends in less than two and a half months, I am going to keep blogging.  I’m not sure where I’m going to post these blogs, but there is something that is inherently healthy about writing, be it making a list, journaling, goal setting, or blogging.  Writing makes us accountable and allows us to dialogue with ourselves and others as well.  In the future, I hope I find a medium that allows me to have conversations with others be it a newspaper column, a radio talk show, a podcast, magazine article, webinar,

when in rome
Megan and Scott
In case you missed it, on 10-1-2018, the Milwaukee Brewers battled the Chicago Cubs in a tiebreaker game for post-season play… AND WON! As locals, sports lovers, and since we both have October birthdays, Scott surprised me and bought us a pair of tickets for the first postseason game at Miller Park! We somehow were able to take a half-day off work to make it to the 3PM game, so we tailgated prior to watching the Brewers beat the Colorado Rockies that night!

turn your dreams into reality!
Jaclyn and Kiara
Have you ever had a dream or a goal that you would do as hard or as much as you can to achieve? No matter how many hours it took or how exhausted you were? If so, trust us; we know the feeling. Our biggest goal even before starting Project Money was to own a house and in just a few short months of participating in this journey, we can see it in our future. It is looking more like a reality and less like a dream. Now, we know that we keep talking about this dream house that we really want but we have come to realize that we have never really gone into detail about it.

Ups and downs
Sara
Hello Week 19 of Project Money!  Each week brings its ups and downs.  One decision I made this week was to buy my first Lula Roe ensemble.  That could be considered a bad thing because it costs money and I didn’t need it.  I used to be in the habit of buying things if they were on sale:  Look!  I just saved 25 percent on this dress.  Look!

How We’re Doing It
Megan and Scott
If you have been following our story you have seen that we have been able to make some amazing financial progress.  We have saved around $6,000 and paid off over $13,000 in debt!  We never would have guessed that we could have accomplished so much in such a short amount of time.  We didn’t win the lottery, we didn’t inherit anything from Great Uncle Ed… this has been our money ALL ALONG. We have control of our funds now (and our future)!
