    Default Starting my 2012 Challenges Early

    So I have been away from the village for a while (hang my head in shame) and I know I need to tighten my belt and be extra frugal in 2012 so I have decided to start my new years challenges now.

    Challenges I am starting right now are:
    Change Jar
    Quarters To Debt
    Penny Jar
    Electric Bill
    Grociery Bill
    No Spend Days (I know I have to spend some tomorrow so this one may have to wait till Thursday to begin)
    COUPONS (I have gotten extra good at thee this year, now I need to track it)
    Line Dry Laundry

    and I'm off to gather all the change in the house lol!

    I need to mark the ones I've joined in favorites cause I forget I joined them. Was bad about that after the beginning of the year
    Bank of America is THE godfather of Hell with Wells Fargo running neck and neck. When the world ends the only things that will be left are cockroaches, Walmart, Wells Fargo and Bank of America. Not necessarily in that order. The order remains to be seen.

    So far in the past week I have managed to put a total of $9.88 in my various change jars (pennies, quarters and misc change). Not bad for only 1 week!

    in an attempt to reduce my electric bill this year I have spent some time getting the wattages off my different appliances and devices and figuring up how much it costs to run them... not suprising I found that I can run my roaster oven much cheaper than my oven... the oven costs about $3 to run for 1.25 hours and the roaster only about $0.18 so...now I am off to find a bunch of recipes for the roaster. Today I have pulled a whole chicken out of the freezer and we will have roasted chicken for dinner tonight
