Win $500 cash towards your financial bucket list

About time I joined this. I have been working on a bucket list of sorts, but I get sidetracked with big goals, medium goals and what not. If you are not familiar with this, the $500 Give Me Back My Five Bucks competition is sponsored by Life Insurance Finder, the life insurance experts. Stop by Krystal's blog and read what this is about. You have until December 14 to join. Also, check the comments sections and a lot of other people's bucket lists. They're pretty neat.

Ok, onto a few items of my list:
1. Get rid of all my debt (credit cards and loans).
2. Buy a car with cash only.
3. Save enough to move in 3 years.
4. Save enough to return to school and get my Master's.
5. Buy someone else a car.
6. Be able to contribute 10% of income to some charitable purpose.
7. Work with Social Services to provide for a family in need outside of just for Christmas season.
8. Live in a big enough house I can adopt children or provide housing for families in need.
9. Pay mortgage early for house mentioned above.
10. Travel for 1-2 months just visiting friends (they're all over!)

I've read a lot of other people's bucket list, and they're great! Although $500 doesn't sound like a lot, $500 can start a butterfly effect, or a snowball effect, rather. And we all know, the bigger the snowball, the bigger the impact, the more momentum the whole thing gets. $500 extra would actually cut 2 full months from my estimated date of August 2013 (time when all but 1 loan is paid off). So best of luck to all!


  1. Wow, wonderful people-centered goals - I hope you can achieve every one of them!
