TOOLS AT YOUR FINGERTIPS
Jeff and Sue
Some of our followers have asked us “How do you keep track of all of your stuff?” Well, that is easy if you are currently a Summit Credit Union member! Even though we utilize our own “system” for keeping track of our weekly spending, Summit’s Climbr offers so much. All of these features work together to help you stay on track to meet your financial goals. Let us briefly explain the features we use.

HARD WORK & DILIGENCE IS PAYING OFF
Jeff and Sue
Last week, we told you about how we hold each other accountable with our finances. This week, we would like to tell you how our month of July actually ended. As you recall, we did have a couple of hiccups at the end of the month with our air conditioner not working and our vehicle not starting. Well, it turned out to be relatively quick and inexpensive fixes for both. Dodged that bullet!

Staying Focused & Holding Each Other Accountable
Jeff and Sue
Many of our friends have been enjoying hearing about our successes (and failures) since we started our Project Money journey. The most asked question we get is, “Is it hard? Watching every penny has to be a lot of work!”. To be honest, it isn’t all that difficult.

Before Project Money we did keep track of our spending, but that is as far as it went. We didn’t take it any further. We only recorded what we spent and where. We didn’t have a budget of any kind. For the most part, if we wanted something, we would just buy it. If we felt like going out for dinner, we went.

Not changing our lives, but redirecting our focus
Jeff and Sue
This past week we met up with our coach, Aidan. We reviewed so many things that we have been working on: how we allocated Jeff’s paychecks through the end of the year, how we set up additional savings accounts (for our credit card charges, life and auto insurances) and how we finalized our budget. Jeff and I feel incredibly confident that we have the train on the right track. We felt that this month would sort of “run on its own” but realized we still had some “tweaking” to do.

We Love Costco!
Jeff and Sue
Like many of you, we love Costco. We arrive and wander the aisles, taste the samples, and get drawn in to the many specials they have to offer each month. You know, the tasty cinnamon bread, the rotisserie chicken and the chocolate covered pretzel chips. After wandering aimlessly, we would arrive to the checkout and be shocked at the amount of “stuff” we had just purchased. Project Money has taught us to write up a shopping list of our needs and stick to it! No more frivolous spending on items we really don’t need to bring home!
