$500 Challenge – Progress Report 3

This past week has been very slow for the $500 challenge. To read more about the $500 challenge, go here. I made $22. Not great. My eBay item did not sell this week, so this was a sale of 3 items on Facebook Marketplace. I’m debating if I should start including CC cash back rewards and Savings interest, but I kinda feel like that’s cheating. Sooo I’m just going to focus on bonus cash above and beyond those things.

Semi-Weekly FIRE Report – Mid July, 2019

Since I haven’t done a semi-weekly FIRE report since this one back in JUNE, I figured it’s about time to HOLD MYSELF ACCOUNTABLE and get back on the FIRE bandwagon.

The fact is, I’ve been at this for almost 10 months, and that means I need to see progress. MORE of it. DEMAND MORE! Continue reading “Semi-Weekly FIRE Report – Mid July, 2019”

The T on FIRE $500 Challenge – Are You READY!?

Here’s the thing.

If you’ve been reading my blog you know that I haven’t been saving much during my aggressive debt obliteration. I’ve been frustrated that I cannot fund my brandy-new TFSA Questrade account to try my hand at investing due to the $1000 you need to have laying around. What am I, a thousand-aire? Sheesh.  Continue reading “The T on FIRE $500 Challenge – Are You READY!?”
