Help Me Save Money! (And Win Some of Your Own)

Wed, Apr 27, 2011

goals, saving

No, I’m not hitting you up for a donation. Although I do accept those if anyone has a couple million lying around!

I’ve decided to ramp up my savings a little and I’d like some help from SOD readers to do so. All I need from you is one (or all) of these things:

  • “Like” So Over Debt on Facebook
  • Follow me on Twitter (@sooverdebt)
  • Subscribe to my RSS feed
  • Google +1 the site

Starting today, every time I gain a FB like, a follower, a subscriber or a +1, I’ll put $1 in savings. I’ll start a new progress bar specifically for what I’ll call my Friend Fund.

What’s in it for you? I’m so glad you asked! When I reach $1000 in savings, I’ll hold a drawing for $100. I will also poll readers to help me decide what I’ll do with the money I’ve saved - put it toward debt, keep it in savings, or put it in my Roth IRA.

I’m putting my motivation to save money in your hands - looking forward to that $100 drawing!

    Great Idea, just tweeted about it!  Curious to know if you've thought about doing the give-away to charity instead of to a follower/fan..was already following you on twitter. Wonder which would work better.
