Weekly Money Checkup

1. The most I’ve spent this last week was on ....oh dear. I was REALLY bad last week! I bought a new vacuum, a bench with tubs for our laundry/mud room to keep gloves/hats/shoes in, a new faucet for the kitchen sink, and my husband bought me a fan for my birthday. That fan sounds boring but our current one is ugly, has weird glass, and isn't made to hang flush with the ceiling so its too low and blocking my tv view from the kitchen while cooking. Thankfully I have been saving for most of those purchases. Now the fan just needs to arrive in the mail.

2. Today I am thankful we gave the dogs baths yesterday. They needed them Friday but my husband had a poker party Saturday and our poor puppy Max that likes beer was hanging out with the guys also smelled like cigars. Yuck!

3. Money can’t buy happiness. One free thing I did last week that made me happy was put my new storage bench together in our laundry room. We have a nice hall closet in the front of the house but we use our garage entrance with no storage and I was tired of piles of gloves/hats/shoes etc. So I fixed the problem and now have a spot to sit and put on my shoes. :)

4. I will consider this week a success if I take our 5 oak bar stools to the consignment store. I think I can make more money there than Craigslist so I am going to try. We spent last Friday drawing up a plan to remodel our basement sans 80's pink 16 foot bar. My husband hasn't decided exactly how he wants the details but told me to start clearing it out. My mom seem's to want to buy the fooseball table so that should be easy.

5. I didn't really notice
 Daylight Savings this year. I didn't go to bed until 2am though and then got up at 7:30 or actually 6:30am. What is wrong with me? We made up for it by going to bed an hour early though last night and lounging all day.
