Getting behind here!

March 19th, 2013 at 09:28 pm

I have not been blogging as much as usual and when that happens, I seem to get behind on money matters. It does not help that I have taken my car to the car dealership in another state 4 times this month.
I got caught up on my $30 a day savings goal and added $46 to week 8 of my 52 week challenge. I am up to $281 on that project!

Where is my mirror??

March 14th, 2013 at 06:41 pm

I took my car into get the seat fixed on Friday. The driver's seat has never gone up and down. The seat works fine now, but somehow, I have lost the mirror on the passenger side. I am assuming that it just fell out some how! I am having it replaced next Tuesday, but I will have to pay for it. On a corvette, the price will be about $150 for the mirror.

maxed the IRA's

March 9th, 2013 at 10:08 pm

This week I sent in $6000 to each of our IRA's. I figure it will help out with our taxes! I had to take money out of a mutual fund in December to help finish up the spec house. It is the first time I have ever taken money out, so I know I will have to pay capital gain tax on the money.

$30 a day plan is going well.

March 8th, 2013 at 08:07 pm

On Jan 28th, I started putting away $30 every day. (Into a tin with Elvis' picture on it) I have not yet missed a day. I have saved and deposited over $1000 into savings this week!

new house to build!

March 3rd, 2013 at 03:52 pm

DH got a new house to build. It won't be a real big house. Actually, we built another house for this couple about 11 years ago and they still live in it. They want a vacation cabin now!
I guess they don't like driving too much cause the cabin will be in the same town as their main house.
Dh is getting ready to start another spec house and this cabin will be right next door. That's handy!
