Blog post=Spark points!

Wednesday, August 24, 2011

Is it bad that I'm making a blog entry simply to get a few extra Spark points?

Not really. On one of my Spark teams, someone posts a Money Jar Challenge. I loved the idea so much that I borrowed it for another team I'm on. Basically, you match your daily Spark Points with pennies and keep it in a jar. Save it, spend it- it's up to you!

I thought it was such a fabulous idea! I set aside a bucket (no jar for me! I'm serious about these points!), and I've been putting my Spark Point bounty in there. I'm also throwing in a few extra bucks each week. I'm saving up to go to a Creating Keepsakes Convention next year- woo-hoo!!!!

What do you think of this idea? Love it? Hate it? Too much pressure?

    I love it! I'm going to start in September. I jokingly asked my husband for change yesterday to start my jar from yesterdays points and he said you might as well start in September and set aside $50 because that's probably what you'll earn! That would be awesome, but I'm estimating about $38. :) emoticon

    Doing the same, and for every pound I lose, I am adding a loonie (you know, the emoticon $1.00 coin!)

    Add me to the LOVE IT column! I think it's a great idea, and very motivating.

    Love the idea. I also saw another one, can't remember where, but if the the $1 bill has any of your 3 initials on it, you put that in a jar/bucket also. I think I am going to start doing this. I would love to go the Scrapbook Expo in Vegas next year! Thanks for sharing!

    No it is not crazy to post a blog for the points, you are saving up for an important trip.
