Weekly Money Checkup

1. The most I’ve spent this last week was on wires etc? I am not really sure what we ordered but it included speaker wires, some outlets specifically for stereo/tv components etc. The order was $87 and should be the final supplies to finish this project we started on a whim almost a year ago. I have a new better plan as well....we figured out how to use that giant hole in the wall to hold all the components so we have built in storage and no cords!

2. Today I am thankful my husband is so resourceful. He managed to run cable through our garage and up into our master bedroom so our tv that has been sitting for 9 months can be turned on! He only spent $10 because he was able to use cable that we had. And that $10 was free because he used my Amazon $$ from Swagbucks.

3. Money can’t buy happiness. One free thing I did last week that made me happy was get house work done as a team. I dusted the whole house while my awesome husband vacuumed. He also raked up leaves in the back yard so the dogs stop tracking them in. Our house being clean makes me SUPER happy.

4. I will consider this week a success if I finish cleaning (I have very little left) and get some of our basement furniture on Craigslist to sell. I keep meaning to do that and haven't gotten around to it.

5. This Thanksgiving we are kind of relaxing. My dad will be home from traveling for work so we are smoking a turkey for him and not doing much else. My husband is excited because his parents and brother are coming Friday and it sounds like they are going skiing Saturday. He is REALLY excited to use the skis he bought last year.

Life is good here, we are getting lots of little house projects done and catching up on bills. We have a plan to pay off our recent stream of large bills, a timeline for a new vehicle, and some plans for the house. I can't believe that 2011 is almost over and how much we have accomplished. I hope 2012 has a few less hiccups and is as wonderful.
