Red Card and updates

February 13th, 2011 at 02:20 pm

I got the Red card from Target. Yesterday alone I saved $5.65.


Our budget is getting extremely tight lately. My husband hasn't been called to do extra trips (he's a school bus driver) in a long time. To make things thighter, the upstairs tenant in our rental house is not paying the full rent. We are giving him another month to see how it goes. We may have to ask him to move. He has a newborn baby and we don't have the heart to tell him to move just yet. If the market was better, I would sell the house and pay off our primary residence.


I created a budget and I'm keeping track of everything to see where we can cut back. My hubby and I would really like to keep the college tuition for DS #1 without touching our savings. I think we can as long as we don't make any unplanned purchases.


Our accountant has to wait until tomorrow to complete our income tax returns. Apparently the forms to get the education credits will not be available until tomorrow.


Did anyone watch Suze Orman and Til Debt Do Us Part last night? I actually watched the shows with my 16 year old, but the deal was that I would have to switch channels back and forth to "LOCK UP".


I'd been cooking the majority of our meals at home using things that I already have at hand. I did have to throw away two bottles of salad dressing and it pain me to do so. Next time, I'll buy smaller bottles.


Okay, fellow bloggers I hope you have a great week and a Happy Valentine's Day. For those of you who live in states with cold weather enjoy the warmer weather coming up (crossing my fingers). Now I live you with pictures of what my banana bread recipe yield today.

    I watched Til Debt Do Us Part.....I couldn't believe the one couple that was overspending by $9400 each month and they had no idea! How do you over spend by THAT much and not know it? Yikes!
