Summer…. Where did summer go? I have to say that I was kind of disappointed with our temperatures. I kind of miss having heat waves after heat wave each week. Kids are going back to school, I know my girl will be going starting Monday. As another week passes, fall is near, wedding is near, and my 52 week challenge goal is nearing. Let’s start this week 52 Week Saving Challenge Week 34, shall we?
52 Week Saving Challenge Week 34
Week 34 Deposit – $34.00 Total- $595.00
Week 34 Reverse- $19.00 Total- $1207.00
If this challenge was pregnant it will be in its last trimester and full term…. Haha..OK I get serious now.. or try.
This week my weekly deposit is below $20, hurray! I am going to need every penny I can get because our wedding is fast approaching and I don’t have to touch our wedding fund I’m all for it.
You can’t imagine how good it feels to know that we won’t have to be worrying about Christmas this year because we planned and committed to this challenge. That you won’t have to worry about which paycheck you are going to be using to purchase Christmas presents.
I have been there and done that. Instead of enjoying our holidays we are worrying about our finances. This is one of the reason why saving money helps you enjoy other things, like Christmas.
If you are thinking of using your credit cards and you have credit card debt for Christmas shopping, you are not helping your financial problem. This is the kind of mindset that gets people in trouble. If you haven’t started this challenge you still have time to start saving some much needed dinero and start paying your debt.
I have written many posts about budgeting, cutting spending and such in my site. If you are looking for ways to earn some extra cash or how to earn free gift cards click here. The point that is never too late to start getting your finances in order before Christmas. This will help you focus on what’s important, your family!
Remember if you are serious about killing your debt and getting your finances under control then start today. What’s stopping you but yourself.

Earlier this month I posted about how creating To-Do lists each day lead me to the realization that I needed to change my daily routine. Once the month of August began so did the way I do things around the house daily.
I am here to tell you that things are going great. I have been able to get used to a routine change without any more hiccups. I look forward to each day now because is completely different.
One major improvement from changing my daily routine is the fact that I am jogging every day and I have done it every day (except for the rainy day, I lifted weights that day). I decided to start back to jogging and sticking with it with no excuses. I haven’t jog in a while and I need to do this. This is like my own personal challenge I have set for myself for the rest of year. To be able to get back to running after many years.
My boys join me in the mornings sometimes when they are up early. This is something I am super excited about (beside the upcoming wedding). To be able to take an hour each day and jog around my beautiful community is something I am enjoying.
Changing my daily routine gives me time for myself, my friends, and family. I think I made the right decision by changing it up and finding ways to get things done.
Every Saturday I have been making tomato sauce from the tomatoes I have picked from my garden.
My motivation is back. My boredom is gone. All by simply changing my daily routine. If you feel like every day is the same thing. You lack motivation or you are simply bored, then change your daily routine.
Have you ever changed your routine to help you motivate you?
