Money Mash Up 1/7. Hosted by simply stacia.
I am one of those that has no budget, rarely knows how much is in the account, and just flies by the seat of my pants. Being more in control and held accountable is something I really need to master when it comes to finances.
When I saw this link up at Stacia's blog, I knew I had to join in. She holds a weekly series of money questions and this is my first attempt at actually thinking about what I spend & where I save.
2. A low-cost or free thing I did this past week was nothing as of yet. Friday is supposed to be around 65 degrees, I am off work, so we may go visit my family and take Dutch to the dog park or make a visit to the zoo or something else outside. Pretty cheap things to do.
3. The one thing I did for another was that we almost bought my sister's supper @ Chili's. She came down and spent the nite with us and although I said we would get her meal, she insisted on buying her own. We turned around and used her money on frozen custard, so I guess it all worked out.
4. Something I really need to accomplish this week is to take down our Christmas tree and all the holiday decor. I just haven't found the time and before I know it, March will be here. It's such a pain in the ass, so I keep putting it aside.
5. My most favorite thing about winter is the snow and knowing that prettier, warmer weather is approaching. I think if it's going to be cold, bare, and get dark in the afternoon, it might as well snow. We don't see it as often here anymore so when I do, I am in love. Winter is now probably my least favorite season so I'm always looking forward to spring weather.
