Checking In!

Money is slow coming in. We just lost my wife's medical insurance a couple of months ago and are now paying 1500 a month for it.

We did not exchange gifts at Christmas. We are clipping coupons, cutting back where we can, and remaining hopeful for the future to be better.

I try and put together no spend days on the top of my list of things to do! I keep socking as much money away as possible.

I was shoveling snow last week and developed some sort of heart arrythmia. I went to the cardiologist and he does not think it serious but I am going for a nuclear stress test this Tuesday.

We had a cold spell and I found myself stuffing newspaper around the doors in order to stop heat loss.

I pay cash for most everything these days. I throw the loose change in a jar in order to save. When I fill the jar up I'll put the money in the bank.

I wish everyone a good year and the best of health!

It never stops..........

567 dollars to fix car and 253 for computer and school supplies. Arrgghhhh!

We have cut back on soda and junk. We have continued to clip coupons and comparison shop and stock up when there are sales.

I am trying to be a minimalist and not purchase anything. It is amazing that I have walked around for two weeks with the same eight dollars in my wallet.

I keep putting money away and am constantly looking for ways to save more and squeeze more out of my budget.

It never stops this money saving thing....

In any case I am still in the black for now and I am trying to stay that way!

No spend days.

I am getting better at stringing no spend days together. I guess practice makes perfect. Not even close in my case but hey I am trying!Smile

I spent no money today. I did not even think about it until I got home and realized it. I guess there will be another 20 dollars in saving this week. I guess I could kep the same 20 in my pocket for the week after as well. There sure is a lot of guessing going on!

Only one bill today and that was for a deductible on my insurance. $19.41.

I seeded the lawn or at least the worst spot on it. I have closed it off with stakes and string. Maybe I'll get some grass. Did it myself to save money.

Setting up a new budget. It will make my life a little tougher but it will get me out of debt sooner!

No Spend Day!

My sister invited us all over for dinner. Free eats is okay with me. We reciprocate. Lunch was brought form home and the oatmeal for breakfast was filing. I spent no money today. Repeat. I spent no money today. My twenty for the week is still unbroken.

Whatever is left over for the week will go into the 20 dollar challenge fund!
