$1,000 Cash Giveaway!

Wanna be a baller? Shot Caller?

Wanna be a baller? Shot Caller?

As someone who espouses (fancy word, huh?) the benefits of planning your monthly spending before it begins, one of my favorite things is when your expenses don’t go up, but you get an unexpected bump in income. For me, I used to just blow through my extra cash, like I did when I received my inheritance annuity, combined with an injury settlement to end up burning $100k in under 3 years! YIKES!

But today, I’m all about allocating any extra funds toward my goals, whether that be debt payoff, retirement funding, bolstering my savings account, or a ri-donk-ulously awesome vacation! And I would encourage you to do the same. Blowing your extra income is so 5 years ago! This year, take all of your extra dollars and cents and achieve your awesome 2013 goals much earlier. “How?”. I’m glad you asked!

iHeartBudgets is participating in a sweet-tastic $1,000 cash giveaway brought to you by StructuredSettlement-Quotes.com, America’s #1 structured settlement and annuity marketplace.

  6. I would use it for a category in my husband’s and I’s budget called “Funny Monney”, which is money that each of us has to spend on whatever we want and I would throw a chunk at our “date night” category as well. Specifically I’m really wanting a nice pair of cowboy boots, silly I know, but its the truth 😀

  7. I’d invest in a new marketing piece that would be professionally designed and then I’d use that to make more income. I love it when you can grow by investing in tools that help you grow.

  8. I’d probably use the money to take bf to Vegas (I gave him this “gift” for Christmas), then I’d use the money I saved for Vegas to pay down our mortgage.

  9. The extra money would go towards a vacation for my wife and I this year. She’s going back to school in the fall, so it looks like we’ll be without vacations for a bit. All for a brighter future, but I’d still love to take one now anyways.
