Money Saving Update
Our eletricity bill seems to have hit an all time high, I think that the people at the elecric company are probably all getting giant bonuses because of my love for a warm house. I put on sweaters and blankets and I still like it warm, I can't help it, it's my weakness (that and chocolate). Funny thing is I love snow and winter, I guess I don't mind if it is cold outside as long as I am warm inside.
Then we take the car in for an oil change and of course even though the oil change was part of the deal when we bought the car, the air filters were not. So $70 later we have new air filters, oh the joys of being an adult. There are so many better ways I can think to spend $70. Oh and just in case you are wondering it was not the prescription that I needed filled. Yes that is right with my new wonderful insurance plan, my prescription was $70 and that is with the 50% off coupon that we have until April then it is a wonderful $140 woo hoo I can't wait.
So there went $140, buh-bye, I miss you already. I would have much rather have turned you into a few pairs of jeans or a couple pairs of jeans and a dinner out with my hubby but that did not happen :0(. Or just stuck you away in savings for that adoption trip we might eventually take. but you apparently had other visions of your life beyond our checking account.
We have done quite well in our efforts but circumstances have led to less than I wanted to have in the ole'bank account but hey it is on the positive side so better than it could have been. We are going to continue through the rest of the month and probably February as well so we hope that somewhere in there we can put a little more in savings and get a little closer to what we need for BB's adoption.
