Weekly Money Checkup

1. The most I’ve spent this last week was $52 on seeds/inside greenhouse for my garden. I am planning on starting all my plants at home except for my peppers and tomatoes. I actually had a few purchases this week that cost almost as much. I bought a dress for my sisters wedding, two small lamps for our master bedroom and some fabric to recover the master throw pillows. (photos later this week). I saved over half of what I budgeted for my bridesmaid dress so it is good.

2. Today I feel just ok towards money. We are doing ok on everything, and life is pretty GREAT.

3. Money can’t buy happiness. One free/inexpensive thing I did last week that made me happy was have my dad's twin brother and his family over for a birthday dinner for my dad/Uncle Don/my husband. We had a great dinner and then played games in our basement. I had to buy the food (we smoked ribs and chicken) YUM! But the company was free and priceless.

4. I will consider this week a success if I remove one more blue tarp from our backyard flower beds. The first owner of the house used 6 tarps that I know of instead of weed fabric. What a pain! I have 4 left to get rid of and they are all covered in rock and you can't plant anything on top of them. Good thing we had snow this morning to remind me I have time before I need to get my plants in the ground.

5. The last time I had a good nap was ....I really am not sure. Sometimes I sleep in but I haven't had a nap in a long time

Have a WONDERFUL week! If you want to join Weekly Money Checkup go check out My Pretty Pennies.

you spent less than 52 bucks on your bridesmaid dress!! That is amazing and you need to take me shopping!! I love having company over that sounds like so much fun playing games with family. That totally sucks about the tarps, why on earth would you put them in the ground! What a waste of a tarp plus it makes for allot more work!
