The month of June is behind us; it’s time to move on to 4th of July parties and the warmest month of the year here in New England. In June, I set up an ImpulseSave goal to save money for my Social Life; an incredibly worthy goal, I think, considering my “fun funds” bank was previously, well... non-existent.
I established an arbitrary goal amount of $200.00, and have completed half of that amount in just one month! That’s right: I have saved $100.58 towards my Social Life in just 30 small days.
I was finally able to be a tech-savvy saver thanks to ImpulseSave’s “Saving with Instagram” feature. Uploading to instagram and saving money happen to be two of my favorite things - so I was always looking for creative ways to save money by snapping pics every chance I got!
(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!)
Here are a few of my Instagram saves over the last month, showing all the fun ways I saved money:
#impulsesave $5.00 for staying in tonight and playing Apples to Apples with Keoni.Look at that smile :) #impulsesave $15.00 for my birthday trip to the aquarium.
Some of my other favorite reasons I impulsesaved this month:
$2.50 “Signore went out and bought me an iced coffee, just because he's awesome.”
$5.00 “Walked to work in the rain instead of paying for parking. I am rewarding myself for suffering through it!”
$1.00 “Went to a local coffee shop instead of Starbucks and definitely saved at least $1.00 on my coffee. :)”
$5.00 “Because we talked on the phone last night instead of seeing each other or going out somewhere. Cheapest date ever haha!”
How did you do on your savings goals this month? What are you saving for? Are you impulsesaving with Instagram yet?
