    I got a refund from the Insurance Co for the car we dropped. $121.


    Junes budget it done. Since we decided to sell our home we decided we better eat down the freezers. 1 will have to go out in the barn to show the house. The huge one! I figure that should give me an extra $. On paper I will have $400 towards the tickets. However with the flooring etc I am really thinking we should scrap the event we needs $1000 for. DH and DS are very opposed! We need to discuss it more.

    The dog kennel idea was a big no since we have decided to list the house.

    I'm not sure if I'm happy for you, or sad?

    What do you want to do??

    Blumpett well I'm glad Junes budget shows 400 to put towards the tickets on top of what I already have. So $625 approx according to the budget. Then I can add in tips and extras from ebay, scrap etc too. I budgeted on my pay being about $100 less than normal just to be safe since I am commission. It looks like I could possibly hit the $1000 by the end of June.

    I am undecided a bit about scrapping the idea of the event. I want to go. We also planned to meet family from out of state at this event along with about 6 other people that are attending.

    I have $200 in the home repair fund but carpet will be more than that. Dh and I are going to go price carpet tomorrow or Fri after work and find out how much it is. I know they have a list of people to install so I will call around once I have the list.

    I will just keep saving as much as possible and see where we get and go from there.


    My goodness, did my post before this one have a lot of typos!!!

    I ended up with enough for 2 tickets( 368) . They are bought. 1 more to to plus some spending cash. I'll should be able to get the last ticket on Wed. That gives me all of June to save for the camping passes and spending $.

    We found carpet less than we expected and an installer that will do it for .55 a sq ft and $5 a step. The total for the project is less than half our estimation

    We ended up spending $59.73 on groceries over the weekend so there was some savings there. It was really hard not to stock up on the sales!

    I have a slow payer on one of my auctions. The other ends tomorrow with 5 watchers so I think it may go up.
