Mother, May I?
So you may recall my wildly successful April Savings Goal, which was to ImpulseSave the dollar amount equal to every day’s date towards my student loans goal. I accomplished my enormous goal and didn’t even break a sweat!
I am very pleased to announce that although my May Savings Goal was not quite as ambitious as paying down $1,000 towards my student loans, I was still able to accomplish my goal ahead of schedule! I saved up $50 to buy myself a fantastic bathing suit by impulsesaving every time I made a healthy eating choice. I accomplished my goal before the month was even up, and thus had to start a new goal ahead of schedule!

Hey June, don't let me down
I love when saving is so easy, that my biggest problem is coming up with where to put my money! This is seriously the most difficult part. I saw that several people on ImpulseSave are saving towards their fun funds or social lives, and I realized the sad fact that I don’t have much of a social life - not one that I spend money on, anyway.
But I really would like to have a social life, one in which I can even spend a little bit of money. This is especially true since I will soon be starting law school, and I will need to take a break once in a while!
I’ve set up a goal of $200, and I will be making an impulsesave every time I am staying in for free rather than going out. I also have recently bought a Droid smartphone, so I will be tracking my impulsesaves with the Instagram interface feature.
(To ImpulseSave with Instagram, just go to “Me > Account > and click ‘Link to my Instagram Account’ “. Then when you share a photo on Instagram, just put #impulsesave and the dollar amount you want to save in the caption. Your savings will be transferred automatically!)

I hope you all help me remember to save towards my Social Life by keeping track of my saves on twitter and on ImpulseSave. If you’re inspired to save money yourself, go ahead and give ImpulseSave a whirl. It’s totally free and we would love to help you save towards whatever your goal is!
