I should be getting my Toluna check any time. It is for $25.00. I previously wanted to use it for cc #1, but I will be attending a conference in a nearby town in April. I have most of the funds set aside already in professional savings, but need more. I really did not think I was going to get to go. I am also going to pay whatever savings I have at the grocery store to cc #1. I will also use some spare change to pay some on the grocery bill and do the same with it.
My mortgage is now under $65K! Woo-Hoo!

And in other excellent news, I really, really needed a new pair of Asics tennis shoes. Because of feet and leg problems, they are the only shoes I wear and mine are about 1 year old. My husband found a new pair of all black ones on Ebay for $59.99 with free shipping. This is a pair of shoes that normally costs around $150.00 in the store, but I usually look for last year's model. I had allocated $90.00 for the purchase already, so after looking at my budget, I plan to put the rest on cc #1.
I got a deposit of $3.00 from Pinecone today. I am sending it right away to cc #1 before I have a chance to spend it on shinies.

Hi, everyone. And they just keep on a rollin' in. I cashed in points at epoll.com and Pinecone.
From epoll.com, I will get $5.00, and from Pinecone, $3.00.
That's a total of $33.00 pending on the 52 Week Challenge because I also have $25.00 coming from Toluna.
I cashed in my Toluna points for a $25.00 check. I guess I will probably get it in a few weeks or so and send it to cc #1. I will count it on the challenge it when I get it.
This is cool.
Hi, everyone. I finally got my mrrebates deposit of $10.98. I sent it immediately to cc #1.

I will be going to a professional conference for 2 days in April. It is in-state, so the only travel is by car and my employer can loan me a vehicle. So, my expenses will likely be the following:
$60.00 conference registration
$80.00 estimate for food
$100-$200 for hotel (I am not sure if it will 1 or 2 nights)
Hi, everyone. I hope everything is going great with all of you on this March 1st. My DH got his paycheck today, so part of it goes to pay a couple of bills, but we send $66.70 of it to cc #1. This is what is making me so excited. This is the lowest cc #1 has been at in over a year!
Prior 52 Week Challenge Balance: $845.14
DH's payment to cc #1 $66.70
New 52 Week Challenge Balance: $911.84
This brings the balance of cc #1 to $3629.23. Woo-Hoo!
