Home > Anniversary/Feb./Savings


February 23rd, 2016 at 02:49 pm

I decided to close the month today. All we have is our 26th Wedding Anniversary plans and that is basically covered by gift cards (late lunch and a movie on Saturday). Our anniversary is tomorrow but my hubby works the night shift.

Good month overall and the rate of savings will be 56% of our net income as of Monday (pay day). I came under budget on several categories except for one. We went $35 over on the heating oil category. It was also a good month for snowflakes:


$3.28 ins. Reemb.
$3.49 ins. Reemb.
$1.00 scratch off ticket
$3.72 ins. Reemb.
$0.10 found at work
$3.00 lottery tickets
$3.72 ins. Reemb.
$176.23 Costco Reward Coupon
$1.00 Survey
$8.00 Swagbuck Amazon gift cards

Total: $203.54

Financial goals for next month is to reach a minimum 60% savings of our net income. Let's see...I think I'm pushing it quite a bit since we have a Spring break vacation at the end of March. Smile

    Hi, just curious how much you've been paying for heating oil. Prices were falling here in Maryland but seem to be stuck at $1.99

    Joe, we paid $1.41 per gallon. I just saw a gas station sign for regular unleaded for $1.31 a gallon. Two years ago, our highest was $3.69 for heating oil; I am not complaining about it this year. Smile
