Katie Rutherford - User Spotlight!

Katie is a non-profit professional that likes to raise money for good causes. She enjoys long trail runs but can never keep up with her dog no matter how hard she tries.

What was your absolute biggest challenge with saving money prior to signing up for Mindbosa? 

I never felt like I had enough money to plan for or put aside after paying bills, rent, etc. I never bothered to open a savings account, and I just tried to stay on top of payments from month to month. 

How did the challenge of saving money make you feel?

I always had some anxiety about not saving enough - what if my car broke down and needed serious repairs? What if a family member or I had a healthcare emergency? I felt like I wasn’t well prepared for anything like that to happen. 

What changed after using Mindbosa? 

When I tied it to running - just one dollar per mile - I didn’t worry about only saving a little bit at a time and feeling like it wasn’t enough, I felt like I was achieving a goal each time. I would get excited to finish a run and log in to Mindbosa to track it. Watching it add up made me think of the options it created. 

What specific results can you share? 

It’s been six months, and I’ve saved almost $500. 

What would you say to somebody on the fence about signing up?

Just give it a try, you can go at your own pace, and you hold yourself accountable. You have nothing to lose. It’s way more fun than you realize. 

Anything else to add? 

If you’re anything like me, don’t set a “candy-free day” goal. You won’t save a dime.
