Beach outing

August 9th, 2010 at 09:04 am

We went to Point Pleasant Beach yesterday and loved our time there. No swimming allowed though (the red flags were up). The boardwalk is small but sweet and the boardwalk cottages were lovely. I told my husband that if I hit the lotto I would like to purchase a boardwalk cottage. The thing is that I'd probably need more that $2 million to purchase one. Oh, well one can dream, right? Anyway not bad on the money front. We spent about $52, most of it on parking and beach badges. We did not purchase any food on the boardwalk because we brought our cooler to the beach.

I start work soon (September 1st). We have $3K left on our summer fund. I hope to be able to send a good part of it to reduce the mortgage principal. Crossing my fingers. I also purchased all of youngest son's school clothes and sneakers and paid college tuition for my college boy ($1,995.00). I have everything in place to start a serious budget come September. I'm also enjoying making a lot of our food from scratch and using less processed food. I'm going to try to keep this going even after I begin work again. I figured that I will not be as busy since I've already completed my Master and I won't be taking any courses this year.

I hope you all have a great week chipping away debt, saving a little bit and enjoying life.
