How did everyone do on the weekend? Overspend? Stay within budget? Let us know.
Had a good weekend. A family get together. Spent a lot of groceries but complained about that last weekend. I have enough of the sherbert to use for another dinner I am making this coming weekend. But other than that almost all the food went. I thought there might be more left overs but no such luck!
I miss Kate and others of course. I wish more people would post!
I miss my tickers. I know one showes up but I can't change the total on it. So I will just breifly mention my progress to keep myself motivated.
My store roof loan is down to $14,001.62 I am very excited by this and have made a few flakes to it. I hope to have a few more flakes this winter but we will see.
Our truck loan started at $20,000 in August 2011 is now at around $6,100. We have made flakes to it this fall. I don't know if there will be flakes to this or not this year but the balance contines to fall with regular payments. I can't wait until it is under $5,000!
I'm not sure when I am going back to work. That will likely depend on my staff. I have been working around 6 x 4 hour shifts a month to keep my salary costs down and keep my foot in the door at the store. Most of it has been on weekends or my MIL has been babysitting here and there for me so no babysitting costs so far. I work at home also online ect a coupld hours a day and seem to be keeping up quite well. I can't believe I have been off work for 6 months so far. She is not sleeping great so this is truly a blessing and I do realize that!
We have started a savings account to buid a new house. There isn't much in it but at least it is started. I have also started an RESP(education account) for my daughter and all cash gifts she receives as well as a monthly contribution goes in there.
So take care everyone. I thinking of you in this holiday season and hoping everyone's financial plans go just as they planned!
