Mrs. Pocket Change’s Bucket List

-Reverse Bucket List-

  • Hawaii – Our epic (and frugal) adventure to the Big Island. Flights and hotels paid with points!
  • Budapest/Vienna – Our first and favorite trip to Europe on credit card points to visit the heritage of Mr. Pocket Change and family in Austria
  • Accomplish degrees w/o debt – check and check! (Just associate’s so far…but BA’s hopefully down the road)
  • Find a fabulous church in a new area – MAN! Church hunting was stressful. But we ended up finding a GREAT one – one that is now our family: Soteria DSM

  • Made the Dean’s List 3x
  • Saved $1,000 emergency fund
  • Ran 3 5ks (one for Donuts!)
