June 8th: Start an Investment Account

The last couple years of my life has been all about saving money, investing money, and getting my stuff together to buy a house.

As I work harder and harder to make this happen I came across this app that rounds up transactions from my checking account and puts them into an investment account. 

It is similar to what my savings account does, however, I like this app because it separates my money to a completely different place. My savings and checking are linked, so at any time I can transfer money over to my checking from my savings. This makes that harder.

June 7th: Do Not Spend Any Money Today

I should probably add this into my weekly tasks and do this at least once a week.

Working in a bar and working strange hours I too often eat out or spend money on things throughout the day that I could easily get or do at home without spending the extra money. 

Today was actually harder than I thought it would be but I think at the end of the day I appreciated the extra $10-15 in my pocket. Doing it more often could really help me save some money.

May 16th: Do Something Touristy

Living in a large city there are so many touristy things to do, but when you live somewhere like that tourist things after fall by the wayside. 

So as part of my year I wanted to make sure I did something that I might not often think of doing. 

It helped that my friend’s, Jared, mom was in town because she wanted to go and I got to tag along.

So in case you are in Denver or visit Denver soon, here’s some info on how to Visit the Mint.

You have to arrive at 7am to get tickets to one of the four tours. We got tickets to 12:30  so we went and had breakfast at Sam’s No 3, also a very touristy place… 

The actual mint tour was interesting. Nice to learn a little Colorado and US history. 

All in all it was a nice day. Very different from a normal day at home.

April 3rd: Call CC Companies and Ask for Lower Interest Rates

Over he next few days I will be catching up on posting my 365 things. I have been super busy and just have not had the chance to keep up with my postings. 

Hope there are still some of you out there following along! I am super excited for the coming months. Spring and Summer means outside things are much more possible and I cannot wait to get out and explore.

For April 3rd, I called credit card companies I have CCs with and asked for lower interest rates. My largest balance I transferred to a new card with 0% rate for 16 months. Just trying to get closer to freedom from debt and enough money in the bank to buy a house! Maybe soon.
