Hello Sophisticated Spenders!
Here are the numbers in a nutshell:
Blog: $0 Technically this number was 0 but I was paid in other ways. I picked up a few assignments from DC Life Magazine and went on a few awesome adventures! I got my hair done for free and attended a few private grand openings (and a concert). I felt like such a celebrity! Post coming soon!
Fitness (Zumba and Insanity Instructor): $667.43
Yard Sale: $57.50

Top Post: Money Mission This Week: Clothes Edition
1: Cash Only in June! I don’t know why I’ve waited so long to do this. Click here to read my post and the rules. I’d say I am passing this with flying colors! I used paypal once to purchase a flight to a conference. Which technically wasn’t breaking the rules because that used cash from my fun money account. I have found that I really am more picky with how I am spending my money. I have no doubt I will make it till the end of the month!
2: Ebay! I don’t have anything listed as of right now. I hope to change that by the end of the day.
3: 40 Days of Dating! I picked sports for my project. I currently play flag football and tennis. I’m not good in either sport and hope to get better in 40 days (which means I’ll be great when the season ends). (Click here to read about the 40 days of dating your passion project). (I hope to begin an new project mid-June).
4: More engaging posts and videos! I am repeating this goal (again)! I’ve been researching post ideas and am excited about what’s coming next for SophisticatedSpender.com!
5: Declutter project! Decluttering went great. I participated in a community yard sale. It was easy, I listed everything for $1 (some items were $2). I had no emotional attachment to the things I was selling so this was pretty easy for me (and the shoppers)! I am currently getting rid of 7 items per day. This went well for 3 days. I’ll have to play catch up during the week and over the weekend!
