Weekly Money Checkup

Go check out My Pretty Pennies to Join in.

1. The most I’ve spent this last week was on a new duvet cover. For some reason ours was getting little holes in a few places. I only spent $60 and since even my husband was noticing the spots he was happy. I have been on such a role paying things off though I hated to spend that.

2. Today I am thankful I finally was able to sleep in. I haven't been sleeping much and I feel much better at the moment. Kerrie+no sleep=not someone you want to be around....just ask my husband.
3. Money can’t buy happiness. One free thing I did last week that made me happy was finally transfer our music library to my laptop. I am still cleaning up our music mess but now I am not worried our old desktop will crash. Not sure why I was paranoid about it since we have it backed up on our external hard drive.

4. I will consider this week a success if I get anything done at all. Since I started the day out late from sleeping in getting something done other than general housework would be nice. I still have a few things I need to do this week to make my life easier.

5. If I could change one thing about my home it would be the flooring. We could really use new carpet but that requires the concrete being fixed in the family room (about $1000). I have no clue how much new carpet/padding will cost as I haven't measured. I also would like new wood/laminate in the dining/kitchen because it doesn't match and it was not installed correctly. Pretty sure both of those are pipe dreams at the moment! 

My plan for paying everything off got set back Saturday by over two months due to another bill with our insurance. Astronomical Bills+Zero Sleep=Super upset Kerrie I am kicking myself for letting us spend more on Christmas for each other but am glad at the same time because this is going to be the year of as little spending as possible. I can't cut back on much else bill wise unless someone can talk my husband out of cable (it is really his one entertainment though). We are pretty lenient with what we spend on gas for the cars since we moved here because we want to see people but that has got to end. My husband already scheduled a trip in March for a wedding...I am at the point I don't want to budget for food. Ack! I hate bills!
