Super Coupon Woman’s 2017 Year in Review & 2018 New Year’s Resolutions

2017 was a year to recover and heal from several years of bad events that was hard to recover from. I had a pretty calm year other than falling and hurting my right shoulder which is my tray carrying arm. It’s still hurt and I have to be careful since I had to continue working with no money to fall back on. I am only limited to not being able to take large parties and other servers don’t believe I am really hurt.

My 2017 New Year’s Resolutions were:

Pay Debt Down Between 8-10k Success …will have 8k paid by the end of January. I did add some debt, but have a goal set to have paid by July of 2018

Build up Emergency Fund …Failed, but paid a lot of debt so it’s okay

Focus On Myself More and Not Put Extra Stress On Myself…Success!

Not Spend any money on Paying It Forward, can only use items others give me or free items I get from Couponing or any fund raising money I receive. Success…I did spend some money, but would back away if I was feeling overly stressed from paying it forward.

Make an extra 3,000 in income from side jobs such as book sales, mystery shopping, blogging, or other side jobs. Failed..only made about 200 and did not put time in on my blog, and froze as far as marketing my book because my self esteem got bruised from all I have been through…hoping to get my inspiration back this year.

Complete the 52 Week Savings Challenge which will give me 1,380.00 to deposit at the end of the year…Failed…too much debt to pay.

Try to pay for Christmas only using free money from gift cards from couponing, survey sites, etc. Failed

Write another… Book Failed

So lot’s of resolutions were not kept as with many, but the two main ones were…so I will be able to focus on the other ones this year. I hope 2018 will be a calm year that allows me to continue to heal and grow that will allow me to continue paying it forward without a heavy heart.

My 2018 New Year’s Resolutions are as follows:

Find fundraisers to raise money to grow and build Super Coupon Woman Foundation.

Continue to focus on myself to heal and grow as we all should each year.

Only spend money on paying it forward if budget allows.

Complete 52 Week Savings Challenge: Want to join to have 1,380 savings at the end of the year?

Write another book

Do mystery shopping or other side jobs to try and earn an extra 3k this year.

Super Coupon Woman’s 2016 New Year’s Resolutions

So the New Year is here, and after a few rough years financially, I am hoping for brighter days ahead. I will still put paying it forward and donating a priority, but will also try to focus on myself a little more.

I tend to always put myself last without realizing it..I have not bought anything for myself in over two years! I spent 2,000.00 on the $50k challenge as well as taking a $9,000 setback due to lots of car issues (went through 3 last year…No No not my driving, just older cars that broke down and had to get a new one. I had to finally break down and get a new car with car payments which is what I was trying to avoid, but I am much safer so it will be worth it!

I helped over 70 children which equaled to about 30 families. I didn’t ask for any income requirements, just a Pay It Foward project, I gave each child between $250 and $400.00 worth of items. I asked each family to send pictures so I could put a video together. Out of 30, only five did. Thanksgiving, I helped 12 families, and only two sent them to me. When I messaged some of them and asked for the pictures, they just never responded back. Though I did not expect anything in return, this hurt my feelings knowing I put my own financial issues aside to pay it forward, their actions hurt my feelings as I am a sensitive person and take things to heart.

I am proud of my accomplishment, and will continue to work towards my #100,000 goal, just at a slower pace. I only need $15,000 to go! With the awesome friends I have, and getting my finances in order to save for a rainy day, this goal should be a breeze!

This year I plan on getting back into extreme couponing more instead of the retail end. I will be sharing my couponing trips with you..some I may scour and search for every coupon available, some I may just browse the sales. I had a fan want me to share how I work in donating my shopping trips. So by sharing my shopping trips good or bad, you can see how it works!

I will also be working on getting my debt paid down, and building an emergency fund so I will not have to be so stressed worrying about the next bill..(yes unfortunately, I am still in this phase)

So, yes this year I will focus on myself and still help others…good plan!

I look forward to sharing my book with everyone when I get it finished.

Happy Donating!
