Some little financial goals for October

September 28th, 2007 at 09:12 am

There are a few money-related things I need to work on so I've set some goals for myself for the month of October. They are:

1. Learn more about maximizing coupon use via thegrocerygame.com, CVS ECBs, and other methods. I've paid for membership with GG for October, November, and part of December and that should give me plenty of time to decide if I like it and if it's worth the money to me.

2. Keep my grocery spending at or below $125 for the month. Normally I go for $100 but with Thanksgiving approaching I'll need to buy a few things for the family get together.

3. Cook less and make better use of leftovers so little to no food is wasted. It's difficult to cook for one after years of cooking for a horde - or even a few people who eat like a horde!

4. Look for a local part time job.

5. Have at least two no spend days every week.

6. Put aside for savings 10% of all money I bring in.

There are other things I need to work on but if I try to do too many, I won't succeed at any!

    Those are good goals. You should really start seeing a difference in your bottom line by doing your list.

    CVS is wonderful- I have been a subscriber to www.refundcents.com for years and they post deals.

    Sicily, can you post an entry tutorial like thing about CVS, maybe? I don't get it still but am trying to! Thanks!
