Remember how I didn’t make any extra income last month! 🙁 Well, at least this month is looking up! Maybe I can make up last months big fat zero.
We made $150 as credit card rewards this month. We put our house and car insurance on the bill, our truck broke down so that went on the bill, we needed to rent a car for when we had company last month. It made our bill huge, but at least we have the rewards now. We pay our bill off in full every month.
If you are disciplined to pay off the entire bill every month than I completely recommend putting everything you spend on credit. You will get a reward for things you need to pay for anyway, plus you will have your spending tracked for you. I use mint.com to tell me where I am spending my money – when it goes through on the card, it is logged in. I find that if I have cash in my pocket I spend a lot more, but some people are opposite, so do what works for you!
We also made $5 off of craigslist 🙂 We sold the toilet we took out of the back bathroom.
