I did most of them.already, but thanks for reminding me to look up free fun in the area. We just moved to Jersey City so i know nothing about here except the shopping areas.

I liked the challenge, especially the virtual trip. We are going to try and watch more travel movies of places we wish we could go!

I didn't like it. The first challenge put a bad taste in my mouth for the whole thing. I do not by any means have the money to save for a vacation. So I was bummed out about money for things I would love to do, but can't afford yet again.

I did most of the stuff already, but it was a great reminder to re-commit to my frugal ways. I had strayed in the past two years after having moved across the country and now my debt is back up.

I will spend some time getting to know my new area and finding free cultural activities.
