My 1st Trip to Another State

On February 29th I will be heading out on my first trip to another state. The furthest north I have gotten is Pensacola, Florida. I have been to two islands in the Caribbean. But this will be my first time in another state. And I am sooo psyched!!

My girls and I are going to Atlanta to see Steve Harvey and Monique. Even though I am extra excited about taking this trip I really don't want to spend any of my budgeted money on this trip. And if you noticed, I haven't taken this trip into account on my February budget. So I put my hustle hat on and have been working on making some extra chedda to spend on this trip.


Here is the estimated cost of the trip:


Tickets: $48

Gas: $45

Hotel: $52

Spending money: $80

TOTAL: $225


Here is what I have collected so far:


Text-Link Ads: $11.28

Ebates: $16.65 (paying out to my paypal on the 15th)

Amazon sale: $72

eBay sale: $40

Revolutionary Money Exchange: $25

American Consumer Opinions: $8

TOTAL: 172.93


Only $52.07 to go!!!! I listed a few things on Amazon this past weekend and I will be putting some stuff on eBay and Craigs List this upcoming weekend. I'll keep you guys updated on my progress.

Good luck making the extra $50!

I'm with single ma! I can't believe you've never really gone to another state...at least you live in a fun state instead of a boring one, like Montana (I apologize if I hurt any Montanians feelings).
