52 Week Savings Deposit

December 13th, 2013 at 01:28 pm

Yesterday, I paid all the bills in full. The only amount on the credit cards is the Washington DC trip, we are slowly paying the balance off at 0% interest. Only $300 left to pay, which means it will be paid off in February. Actually, I might just pay that off next pay period now that the amount is so low.

Anyway....while paying bills I made our first regular deposit to the 52 Week Challenge. I had a beginning balance of $10 and added $57. I will add $57 twice per month and by Nov 15th next year I will have the full $1,378, plus interest. I did send that money to my Capital One savings account for easy book keeping.

I was actually able to put $748 aside into savings, which is the biggest amount I have been able to set aside for savings in awhile. I hope I didn't miss something, but I think we just spent less. I still have over $200 in the Christmas fund. A little more of that will likely get spent, but maybe a good chunk can go to the mortgage before the end of the year.

We have made one purchase on my husband's Capital One debit card. Only four more to go to qualify for the $125 bonus!

My dad bought me a Mega Millions ticket today. I offered to pay him the one dollar, but he refused. It would be nice to win, but the odds are not in our favor. I really NEVER play the lottery, but it is fun to think about winning.

Do you play the lottery? How often? How much have you ever won?

    I would have to cross state lines since Nevada doesn't have the lottery so I don't play very often. Nice deposit to the challenge as well Smile

    Bea - whereabouts do you live in Nevada? Do you like living there? Nevada is on my radar for retirement.

    I have bought a few lottery tickets over the years, but not many. I can't recall the last time, I am sure it has been more than a decade.

    My friend who I graduated with, Tabitha, urged me to get a Mega Millions too when I saw her at the convenient store. Then, one of the guys who works at her family business was playing Pick 3, so I got the number 537. Tab said that it was up to $400 Million!! That's a lot of money.
