finale

Hello Week 31 of Project Money!  This is the final week for my official Project Money journey.  Growing up I remember watching The Wizard of Oz, the 1939 movie based on Baum’s children’s book The Wonderful Wizard of Oz.  I loved Dorothy and Toto, Dorothy’s Aunt Em and Uncle Henry, and was equally terrified by the Wicked Witch of the West and the flying monkeys.  As a young girl, I watched with wide eyes as Dorothy, the Cowardly Lion, The Tin Man, and Scarecrow proceeded on the yellow brick road to Emerald City in search of home, courage, a brain, and a heart respectively

project money 4 lyfe
Megan and Scott
Well, the year is coming to a close! It seems like just yesterday we submitted our application to Summit Credit Union with hopes of becoming finalists in Project Money Season 10! We have accomplished our goals as outlined at the start of the summer, we have blogged and posted all about our struggles and challenges along the way, and now it is time to create some NEW goals for 2019, as we continue our annual Project Money at home! Maybe the best way in starting the New Year is to think of what’s coming down the pike in 2019….

does it really have to end?
Jaclyn and Kiara
We can’t believe that this is our last blog and that Project Money is coming to an end! During a recent conversation with our coach Jamie, we asked if we could start over or have six more months?! From the point we are at now, we’ve come to a realization that we can do it on our own from here. Granted if we ever reach a crisis, we will probably still call Jamie to ask for help.

what a roller coaster ride!
Angie and Cris
We started off Project Money with what a ride this will be.  We had never taken this ride before, and were willing to lift our expectations and experience this one, only starting with what the outcome may be.  We never dreamed we’d be where we are today after this year.  We knew it would be an uphill climb for sure, not understanding how we’d feel on the way down.  Going up a roller coaster to get to the top takes a long time and a lot of commitment, as you have to work harder than the fun ride down.

save money in the laundry room
Sara
Hello Week 30 of Project Money!  We continue to wind down with Project Money though I have reiterated more than once that the journey is only beginning.  Each week I make new gains in terms of increased savings and debt reduction, fail at things and succeed at others, and take time to reflect on how I can improve while celebrating multiple successes.  For this week’s blog, I want to take you to an article that discusses 16 ways to save money related to doing laundry.  I have

the real MVP
Megan and Scott
This has been one heck of a ride.  We just wanted to recap what has happened throughout Project Money and the fact that we never would be where we are or have had the success this year without the wonderful staff at Summit Credit Union. As we mentioned last week in our blog, we had a goal to pay off one more loan by the end of the year for Scott.  We accomplished this last week with a team effort that never would have happened before the “counseling” of our coach, Jamie.
