    If you got the tax credit in 2008 (not 2009 or 2010) it looks like you start paying it back this year. For some, it's time to repay home tax credit - Business - Tax Tactics - msnbc.com

    Ran across this article about new words in 2008. The one that caught my eye in particular is in bold. Have you ever had a swipeout? :laugh:

    Okay, maybe a 16 days late, but I am still really proud of all the effort we put into it! And need an outlet to "shout" about it. We had to pay for a birth and the downpayment for a surprise "new" (or to us) vehicle and we still managed to meet our goal albeit a bit belated. We had $82,288...

    It seams as if another year has passed. Did I meet all my goals, NO. I didn't stick to that diet I planed, nor did I pay off all my debt. I didn't become more organized or a better house keeper. But in the end none of those are the things that really mattered to me, or else I would have done...

    I already posted a thread about areas I will be looking at improving in, in the new year. In looking back though there are also some new skills that I learned. Some I learned here and some I learned other places. Sometimes I look at other peoples posts of the things they do and think " hey, I...

    I want you to pause for a moment and look around your house. Is it the way you want it to be for the entire next year? Is this how you want to enter 2009? Is all of the holiday trash gone? Cardboard broken down, tied up, and outside, ready to be recycled? If so, then good for you. If not...
  12. Goals and Dreams
    Hi! So I've noticed everyone posting their 2009 goals, and that got me wondering - how'd I do on my 2008 goals I set? I found the post from last year that I put mine on: http://www.frugalvillage.com/forums/showthread.php?t=91981&highlight=2008+goals&page=1 How'd you do? Let's share! My goals...

    It is getting really close to the end of the year and I have been busy trying to get some thoughts together about what I want to achieve next year. This prompted me to think back to this time last year when I was considering what I would like to achieve in 2008, I was amazed at how much I had...

    Last chance to make 2008 as productive and memorable as possible, then it's GONE, GONE, GONE, and we're on to a new calendar! What are you going to do to finish out the year right?

    Well I really blew last months grocery budget. I will try again this month including everything, even out to eat. I am going to raise the budgetted amount $80 though to $400. I've dropped my gas budget from $320 to $200 though so even with upping the grocery spending I am still up $40. Out to...
  16. Thanksgiving
    (The letter that will go out in my Christmas cards) Thinking of you all --- ~ I’ve pondered my annual letter once again, the one that sometimes you receive and sometimes I just ponder. As is my usual coarse some of the things I am thankful for this year are ones that show up year after year...

    Ok, I know it's only about 6 weeks but I have to admit to being a recreational shopper. I do limit my shopping to clearance racks and thrift stores but still....it's recreational shopping. I'm trying to break this cycle sooooo (no laughing Darlene!) I'm going to forgo shopping for anything for...
