Ok, I started this blog a few month ago with the goal of saving for a house. The idea would be that I would use alternative funds for this goal, meaning money not earned by working. It has been a challenge getting to my first goal of reaching the $1,000 mark, but I did it my bank account now has $1,000 towards the down payment on a house. I did this with selling some of my old stuff on auctions sites like Bidville and eBay and other creative means. I am enjoying the hot weather in Ontario Canada and will sleep a little better knowing I am only $29,000 short of the amount that I require. There is hope, I will keep everyone posted on the next $1,000 to be added. I think that giving the total every $1,000 seems like a good way for me to stay motivated. Well in other news I was told by a friend of mine in the US that he just got a great job by using a service I never heard of, so I thought I would pass this information for anyone looking for work. It's a service that sends out your resume to hundres of jobs. I though it was a great idea so here is the link.Hyperblast your resume and target 100's of currently available jobs in one shot!
