Got a $50 gift card from my bank!

May 7th, 2011 at 08:56 pm

I earned $1000 on my savings account and the bank sent me a gift card for $50 and if I keep the account at that level for a year, I will get another $50 gift card. Way better than interest. Since the account is my emergency unemployment acount, God Willing, I won't need it and get the $1000.

I cleaned out my closet and laundry baskets. I had planned on going shopping for socks, and found a whole drawer full of various colors of sock. I also found a bunch of good clothing I can use, toss rags, and gave about 8 bags to Goodwill and got a tax receipt. I feel sort of powerful and also rather serene having cleaned up junk and made my house more organized. I have socks in one drawer, under wear in another, shorts in another, night time wear in another and i have work clothing in one part of the closet and slacks and fun top and church clothing all in clumps so its easy to find things.

I'm going to toss the rest of the junk in the room and then paint it and clean the carpeting. I may make the room into a foot reflexology room and do that at my house for people from work. Its a thought for doing a second job that doesn't interfere with work.

    Good on you for clearing out stuff you don't use and donating it to charity so that someone else can use and enjoy those items.

    If you enjoy doing reflexology, it can be a great way of earning extra income. I suggest you prepare a small business plan that outlines what you would need to buy to offer foot reflexology treatment like support chair for client, stool for self, basin for foot soak,powder, lotion, chart to help clients understand and some towels for example. Start now to retain every receipt for this project. If you find this becomes more than a 'hobby' you can claim some of your housing costs and expenses as income tax deductions while reporting reflexology income. When it comes to income tax, every bit of savings helps.

    I'm in Kansas, too long of a commute for reflexology.
