  1. $25/Week challenge, week 3 shopping

    by , 11-15-2008 at 11:36 PM (Living Frugal, Not Cheap)
    I spent $50.92 today. Pretty close to our $25 per person per week allowance, but because of other purchases this month we are up to $174 of our $200 for the month, and I know the thanksgiving turkey is going to take $20 of our remaining $26 next week and I will need my $4 milk too. More on that later.

    I did a lot of pantry "stocking up" shopping this week with sale items. I have marked those items with a *.

  2. 10 (More) Reasons You're Not Rich

    Many people assume they aren't rich because they don't earn enough money. If I only earned a little more, I could save and invest better, they say.

  3. "Hello"

    "Hello"
    is such a little word,
    but when it's sent your way,

    It says "You're being thought about",
    It says "You're nice to know".
    Hope it adds a touch of joy
    this little word
    "Hello."

    Stop right now and think of five things in your life for which you are thankful.
    It should be fairly easy to come up with at least five. If you're having trouble,
    start with life itself, the beauty of the world around you, the opportunity to learn
    and grow. Consider your family, friends, people who sincerely care about you,
    your work, your faith, your home, your community, the joys you've known,
    the things you have to look forward to.

  5. 5 Year Plan

    by , 11-15-2008 at 10:32 AM
    Well, I'm going to try my hand at this blogging stuff. I figure that it will keep me accountable and maybe help me reach our goals a little faster. What is the old saying, Goals are just dreams until they are written down. We have a 5 year plan to get out of debt and hopefully pay cash for next home with land for cash. We have seriously out grown our house but, with some decluttering and some serious organizing we can make it work for a few more years . We are carrying alot debt, you guys ...
