This week's update

April 16th, 2011 at 07:52 am

Hubby earned an extra $283 and I made $12.50 extra this pay period. I added these amounts plus a little extra to round it off to $300 and made an extra mortgage principal payment yesterday. We have trimmed $7272.96 out of $15K target goal for 2011 so far. Woo Hoo!!!

Today I'm going to see Ricky Martin in concert (an early Mother's Day present). We are splitting the parking and going out to dinner before the concert. There are five of us going, so it should be fun.

Test drove a 2011 Toyota Prius Hybrid, but I'm still not convinced that we should add another car payment to our budget. I think we are sticking to the plans of public transportation starting in September. I'll let you know.

Still pretty cold here so no luck trying to economize with the heat at my house. I hate being cold.

Hope you all have a great weekend. ((HUGS))

    How did you like the Prius? We are totally using public transportation right now, ourselves, but when we come back to the States we will probably be looking at a car and a lot of factors lead me to want a hybrid. Not looking forward to the costs for gas, insurance, upkeep, and all of that, though.

    Jerry, The Prius is not a good looking car (in my humble opinion), but it has excellent ratings. It's very quite, especially when is running on the battery (up to 35 miles and then it goes into gas). It gets between 48 to 50 miles per gallon which is so awesome. We have decided to forgo purchasing a car for a year and then we'll decide what to do next. Good luck!
