My Financial Bucket List!!

There are things I need to do with my finances in order to get what I need for my family.  In order to do that, I need to organize my  bucket list for a clear path towards that goal.

  •   Save $2,500 for home down payment 
 Moving into my own home will secure my family for years to come.

  •   Pay all of my collection accounts off-
      My accounts total in the credit report is $980.

  •   Pay down credit card balances $2,600
This will help me get a higher credit score, improving chances at home ownership.

  •   Sign up for a money market account 
Frequent deposits is a plus to maximize cash. I want to start with $1,000 and look into cd's as well.

I have written this post as a start to reaching my goals and  because I am trying to win the $500 Give Me Back My Five Bucks competition, sponsored by Life Insurance Finder, the life insurance experts.

My Review of Wreath Stand

Originally submitted at Plow & Hearth

Our metal Wreath Stand has the look of a hand-wrought colonial accessory that's as decorative as it is functional. Sturdy metal stand has a stair step base topped by a classic ball finial encircled in a ring. Nicely finished in antique bronze. Some assembly.


Great product
