I'm Still Saving For WWE SummerSlam
I wrote a post a while back stating that I was going to WWE SummerSlam. You can catch that post right here: http://personapaper.com/article/14702-heading-to-wwe-summerslam-in-2015 (if I am not allowed to link it, please let me know and I'll check it. Thanks.)
It was posted on November 9th, 2014 (hey, my Momma's birthday!) So where exactly am I at? Saving up, or saying I will save up but didn't actually do it? Or did I scratch it off the list completely?
Well guess what? I am happy to say that between my writing and babysitting, I already have a couple hundred saved up! :D The tickets haven't even gone on sale yet, but I do have enough for my ticket so far.
What I do is I take a little out of my each pay and put it towards SummerSlam. We have increased our babysitting, as you may have seen in the previous post, so a good chunk of that money will go towards SummerSlam. I am $8 away from redemption on Bubblews, so whenever I hit that, I'm putting that $50ish towards SummerSlam. I don't know what I'm doing with my first redemption here. I have a long way to go, as I only hit my first dollar the other day. Depending where I am with my finances, that pay may go towards SummerSlam too. I may even take on extra work -without burning myself out- once we get closer to the trip. I have several survey websites, including Swagbucks, MyPoint and ChatAbout, and I plan to earn as much as I can by June or July; same with Mturk hits.
You see, I have to make sure I can afford my regular expenses first, and then I put money on the side for SummerSlam. I take a little out of every pay while letting the survey/task websites build up. I will continue to do this until August 15th, my final big pay day before.
Now the Izod Center is closing down, forcing the WWE to find another location, but I have heard that the WWE wants to keep it in the NJ/NY area. So we should be good to go. I may do what I did before -providing I'm not babysitting- and that's play my WWE playlist while working. It's a reminder that I have a trip to work towards. I did it back when I was saving towards Wrestlemania 29 in NJ/NY, and it does help increase the motivation.
I rarely go to the movies or concerts or other events, unless it's something I really want to see. I don't do clubs or anything of that nature. WWE events/signings are really my thing. I love the feeling of being there, and even moreso the feeling of knowing -I- earned it. I plan to earn it and make this trip work, and I am pretty darn excited for it. :D
