The last day of 2006 and I am really ready for 2007. My goals is to lose 50lbs and to put some major money into my retirement, vacation, and debt acct. I owe my mother 65,0000. over the course of 10 years and I have to make her first $7,000 payment today. Thank God I saved for that and that was hard to do but I did it. And the $20 challenge for me starts today. I wish everybody a happy and safe new year. Also this year I am starting to count all the money that we spend on eating out and food shopping. We spent $800.00 in a 2 month period. That's to much for 2 people. I will do better this year! Oh well happy 2007!

I never used coupons that much because I never seemed to get any good coupons to use. But effective christmas eve I will be using couponds when I can get them for the tings that I use and I will be putting the money away toward my $20 challenge that I will also start today.Reason for the renewed coupon interest is because My co-worker gave me a cute coupon holder for christmas that I want to use and to save money of course.
I rolled coins last night total $85.00 this goes toward $20.00 challenge and vaction.
I made sure to buy some dolls and race cars and give to toy for tots I do this every year. The feeling is priceless.

The holidays are here and I am rushing them away. I can't wait for 2007 so that I can really focus on my goals of losing weight before my July cruse, Getting a tenant into the other house that we have, we are in the process of fixing it up to rent out. And Looking more into puting money away for retirement. That part is scary to me.

Nothing to much on the saving front. Just trying to get the bill payed for the month. Even thought I have an so called extra check(I get payed bi weekly) this month can you believe that it's spent already on bills.
Hope everybody have a safe and blessed holiday.
Just got a notice about my property tax bill it will be going up a extra $120.00 for the year 2007. I remember when I used to pay $350.00 every quarter now I am paying over $600.00 every quarter forthe same piece of property tax. Things keep going up and My salary never catches up to the bills.
