COUPONING FINALS
Megan and Scott
We are going a bit out of our comfort zone this week and blogging about our new trials with rebate apps. We downloaded the Ibotta app, as many of the couponing websites we follow outline how you can create additional savings by cashing in on rebates later.

Pros? More money saved and no paper coupons to clip since everything is digital! There is a ginormous selection of stores to choose from: grocery, retail, pharmacies, beauty, etc.!

9 To 5
Sara
Hello Week 9 of Project Money. “Tumble outta bed and stumble to the kitchen. Pour myself a cup of ambition. Yawnin’ and stretchin’ and try to come to life. Jump in the shower and the blood starts pumpin’. Out on the streets the traffic starts jumpin’. With folks like me on the job from 9 to 5. Workin’ 9 to 5. What a way to make a livin’. Barely gettin’ by. It’s all takin’ and no givin’. They just use your mind and they never give you credit. It’s enough to drive you crazy if you let it.

Gains and losses!
Angie and Cris
Angie received her bachelor’s degree in accounting…but never prepared her for real life gains and losses. We have some gains recently – we have saved hundreds of dollars not eating out like we used to the last two months. We also have enough in our savings to pay for our two mortgages for one month if anything ever happened. Losses – all the money we’ve saved from not eating out, we feel just went to pay for the kids’ birthdays and parties. Really it didn’t, but seeing the gains, we sometimes feel defeated every time we see money going out.

Breaking down financial barriers!
Jaclyn and Kiara
Big news over on our side! After a little bit of back and forth on the phone with our credit card member services department, we were able to take our Summit auto loan balance and pay our other card balance down to about $450! With that being said, since we have been making such great financial choices, like actually saving and budgeting, we were able to just pay off that extra $450 right on the spot; so we are now sitting at $0 for our credit card bill!

Big River

Hello Week 8 of Project Money. It’s hard to believe that two months have already passed in my Project Money journey. Some days the journey seems slow, hard, and tedious, and on other days, things flow smoothly and there are more gains than setbacks. Throughout it all, one thing remains constant and that is that things are always moving.
