1/5/07 Update

January 5th, 2007 at 05:33 pm

Well, since life is giving me lemons right now, I decided to make lemonade!! I had my kitchen light go kaput! Tried to rewire a new switch but it was the circuit board so yesterday DH and I picked out a moderately priced replacement ($30.00) and I installed it after he went to work. I "earned $.39 for saving postage and $2.50 for combining 5 errands with 2 other preplanned outings. I did have a "No Spend" day on 1/1 and 1/2 so add another $2.00 so I'm up to $24.89.

I also was thinking about adding amounts that I get from those coupons that the cash register spits out if you purchase certain (unknown) items. I got a $1.00 and $3.00 coupon on 1/4 when I went grocery shopping. They are "savings" on your next purchase, so since my aim it to stick to my list I would actually be spending less or saving the amount of those coupons. What do you think? I'd appreciate any input on this one. I don't think it's "playing fair" if you add $$ from something that you currently do now. The idea is to be creative and find "new" ways of saving $$.

Thanks to all of you who have read and commented on my blog. I really appreciate the input and it's nice to know that others are like minded as far as financial conscienceness goes!!

Hope yoou all have a great weekend !!

    I never was a coupon person and now I am. Oh I am not great, cause we do not have a local paper with coupons. but I do add any money from coupons or using my store card to my $20 challenge. It does add up! Especially since I take the money and put it in a cash box for deposit later.
