I am a blogging debutant; it is my hope that this will be a forum for me to organize my finances, share progress, and post soome goals. I've lurked long enough and sometimes feel that I may be in need of some company of like-minded money folks!
Confession: My household has 52 odd Easter notions/oddities/stuffed bunnies/deocrations. I have 4 children 9 and younger and most were acquired after we started having kids. I share this because I could not resist the temptation to buy more Vintage Inspired ones from Michael's (all 40% off). I did realize that this is not inline with a simplified decluttred lifestyle and returned $16.01 worth of items. I did keep six ceramic mugs (as I am hosting a brunch) which cost $.59 each. Frugal splurge!
I am most proud of: Being consumer debt free; do have $25,000 in student loans to tackle.
I am not proud of: Opening multiple checking accounts/credit cards for "free" interest and points. Done quite a bit of that and need to close some long unused accounts (one has $.54 cents in it) My DH says, "What? and why?" And I say "$50 is $50" but then I don't track and is it worth it?
Today I did: Write one letter to close HELOC that we had to open because we were a non-escrow mortgage account.
Well, enough ramblings for now!
