Following my daily reading of fellow PF blogs, I decided to look into the Yakezie network. What is the Yakezie Network? And what is this challenge that I've read about on other PF blogs? I read up on the challenge and am very excited to announce that I have joined the Yakezie Challenge!
I now need to focus on writing consistently throughout the week. I also need to add more details to my blog and really focus on my journey to becoming debt-free. I have been making some progress on decluttering my closet and making some extra income, although that income isn't getting applied to my debt.
This past Saturday, I had the opportunity to join in on a community garage sale. This garage sale is a yearly event and attracts hundred of people looking for a good garage sale deal. I loaded up my car with bins of the kids clothing, toys and things around the house that were simply taking up space. In the 4 hours that I was there, I made $80.
My sister was selling tickets for a friend's wedding social, so $20 of the earnings went towards the ticket payment. The remaining $60 sat in my wallet. We ran errands on Sunday and by the end of the weekend the $60 was now $40. Then yesterday I picked up some crayons for the kids and my wallet now has $35 left. I should take that $35 and put it towards my debt. That is something that I will do today. That will be the first step in paying extra towards my debt. Yay!
I am making a commitment today to be more focused on tracking my expenses and income. I will become more involved in the PF blog community and I will do my best to succeed in the Yakezie Challenge.
