We have about $400 items for sale on Craigslist right now.

One big item and a few smaller things.

BUT it just occurred to me that, um, that this may push us to $10k on the challenge.

Wasn't even my thinking. Just in de-clutter mode!!!!


Well, we'll see. Between that and interest. I might have to save some christmas money to make up the difference. We'll see. For now, money saved, goes to challenge. (gifts and such). I wasn't really planning to save anything though. We'll see. I'll save $50 to get to challenge though.

I actually will probably deposit the $400 or so craigslist money into my ROTH. I need $1100 to buy into another fund. I have everything else covered/planned. But we'll see. Depends ultimately on Christmas money. I am afraid I am depending on some big checks. Trying to keep in mind, who knows, they could not materialize.

If I can put $400 in my ROTH, I might take a $700 advance on short-term savings so I can buy into a mutual fund. We'll see. I can't justify advancing the whole $1100. But if I can whittle it down...

We'll see!

    Inchy by inchy!! I do this too...if I shave a bit off here and add a smidge from there! Good luck with this. I know how frustrating it can be to have a good investment picked out and no $'s to pop off and buy it!

    I don't even have one picked out. Sometimes it is just hard to allocate across so many brokerages. With time I am happy with this - I like variety. For now, with less dollars, I don't want to put all my money in volatile international funds. But some. So I just put the minimums and have a little left over. But I am confident I will find something. If nothing else I do have an eye on a balanced fund. Sure beats cash. (I invest probably too much in cash as is).

    BUT I Am not sure I would bother scraping more money for retirement these next few months otherwise. So it is good in that regard! Inchy by inchy, indeed.
