 So one of my goals I have set this year is to buy a new flat screen tv but by using mainly giftcards earn through swagbucks, mypoints, and so on. So far I have a $100.00 towards my goal yay.

Have you ladies set up any goals this year?

Yes the kids and I have a big water jug at home that we started filling with lose change and I put any money I find when doing laundry in it.  That money is going to be used for our Disney vacation in the next 3 years.  So far we have over $100 in it.  My other goal is starting to buy baby stuff that way when we start trying to get pregnant again here in the next several months I will have stuff already inside of having to go buy it.  I already got a pack of diapers with coupons which was an awesome deal.

I just want to build up our savings a bit more and get some debt paid off, we have quite a bit, so chipping away feels good.

I want to get our cards paid off, save for oil, and money into savings. We had the cards paid but dh needed dental work and we have to replace our floors and paint the house so they have a balance again. I want them zero, money set to prepay oil and have some savings.

I have a goal to pay for my school books with my swagbucks. So far it's working. And to only spend 1/2 of what I earn selling my crafts on new crafting supplies.

I won't be working for a good chunk of spring/ summer (baby #3 due Mother's Day!). So my goals are basic for most of the year: pay towards debt, maintain our savings, try to coupon/stockpile as cheaply as possible.

Then once I'm back working (part time), we'll be paying off debt, saving (more) towards Christmas, and working on our longer term goals: we want to replace my Subaru with something a bit roomier for the third bum in the backseat without taking on too much debt. And we're saving towards hopefully moving within the next three years (without incurring debt, and providing dh finds his 'dream' job). (:

Do you get a lot of swagbucks?? I've earned some paypal and amazon gc's here and there but never anything huge. I'll be home with all the kiddos now through most of the summer so I'm hoping I'll be able to set aside more time to concentrate on earning sb, couponing, etc, but I'm amazed how some people earn tons of SB's!! (:
