Just 12 more months til Christmas!

December 26th, 2009 at 06:18 am

We had a very nice Christmas, just mem my dear husband and our two sweet puppies, Holly and Molly.
We do give gifts, but just to each other. I send my granddaughters each a check.
Our presents are not expensive; just things we need. Boring things mostly, like we give socks and underwear.
My husband did want a heavy duty DeWalt radio for the construction site. Plus we both felt like we needed some new cookwear.
We took a nice ride out to check out a house with some leak problems (dh did NOT build it, but is trying to fix all the problems) We took Molly with us to get her use to riding in the car.

For dinner, we did not have the usual Holiday fare. We just had turkey last week, so we had steak instead!!
Finally, my dh got to watch his favorite christmas movie, The Christmas Story.
He has been talking about it for about 2 weeks and we could never find it on tv until yesterday. TBS had it on all day, so he finally got to see it last night.

I don't usually care for television very much, but I enjoyed watching CNN's show, "Til Debt do us part" It was amazing how clueless those people are when it comes to money. One couple was spending more than $2000 a month on groceries and eating out. (A family of four, the two children were 5 and under)

I am ready for 2010 and a year of super savings!

    I like that show also. I've been watching it for a few weeks now. I don't know if it is a new series, but I've never heard about it before.

    I have to agree with you on the "clueless" part. It never ceases to amaze me how little people accually know about where their money goes. Even when I was pouring my money out of my boot, I had a relative idea where it went (I just didn't care much).

    I do have a question for you about the 20$ challenge. Huh? Call me uninformed, but I can't seem to find any information on how it works. If you could send me a link or a rule book or something it would be greatly appreciated.

    So as to not to take up alot of space in here, you could email any info to dreamwarrior01@hotmail.com
    Thank you in advance. Hoping to read many more post in the upcoming year.
