- I earned $3,085 from mystery shopping. My goal was to earn $3,000.
- I ended the month with my credit card debt and car loan balance at $39,064. My goal was $38,000.
- I finished 90% of the rehab work for the rental property I am selling, and after this week it will be listed for sell. The only work I did not get done in July was installing new carpet, which was intentional. I realized later in the month that I should "spend" the carpet money in August to help me reach a spending goal on my Discover card that will earn me a $500 reward. Since I easily covered the spending requirement in July, I decided to push this expense into August.
