Week 2 - No Debt New Car Savings
It is week 2 in this mission to save enough money to pay for a car in CASH. I had such a great first week and now that I know what I was doing it was time to amp it up before I head back to school. It’s also important to note that New Year occurred during this week so there was a lot of money to be made in this time frame. I was able to do 44% more orders than I did in the previous week and the numbers speak for themselves.
To understand the basics, check out my first week’s blog where I talk a lot about this entire breakdown by clicking here.
In week two, I was able to add the following:
Mileage Reimbursement: $200.71
New Car Savings: $112.75
Total Addition to the New Car Fund: $313.46
After two weeks, I should be able to save $25,000 in 19.4 months or 1.6 years. However, school will start back up soon and the amount of time I actually can devote to this will drop so I need to make the money now before I have to pare it down in a few weeks.
Here is what the account stands at as of 1/6/2019:
Mileage Reimbursement: $399.09
New Car Savings: $181.31
Total in the New Car Fund: $580.40
Amount to Goal: $24,419.60
It is important to understand that not everyone can do this, I understand. There are some things that are working in my favor. I am able to devote time to this because I don’t have kids to worry about and I am focused on doing this on the weekend and when I have free time during the week. I never compromise my full-time job because that pays all my bills, but when I feel like I am just sitting in front of the TV, I’m also looking at my app to see if I should go out and try to make a few bucks.
On to Week 3 my final week before I head back to work and will have to limit my time on this mission.
