Well I asked and you all answered! My two posts on tightening up our budget have received quite a lot of positive feedback.
Tara was kind enough to share an awesome (and free!) online personal finance tracking site – Budget Pulse. I was always so jealous that Americans had mint.com, not anymore, this site works for Canadians! I’ve got all our information entered – including uploading bank & credit card statements, listing assets and liabilities and have determined we have a somewhat sad net worth of $51K.
I did just alright today with money. Since we didn’t cook last night I had nothing prepared for my lunch. I ended up spending $6 on a egg white sub. This is the last time I make that mistake. It literally pays to be organized.
Also, received an unexpected little gift at work today that allowed me to shop without spending a dime! ;) Unexpected gifts are the best and this one made my day!
The timing couldn’t have been more perfect. I’ve been really into reading lately so I just picked a few books from my list of “To Reads” (along with one for hubby) and took advantage of free shipping to boot! If you’re wondering, Eat Pray Love and A Year in Provence made it to my cart.
We’re having a pretty mellow evening. Did some cleaning, watched the second episode of Losing It With Jillian <—still not that into it. Hubby’s now playing one of his video games and I’m hanging with the kitty kats, blogging and watching tv.
I’m so impatient, I want the plants to come up now!!
Looking to be a fun weekend, first and foremost –it’s going to be sunny!! Meeting up with Jaime tomorrow morning for a little coffee at Two If By Sea and then Holly and Dean are coming over for the night. Do you have any fun plans for the weekend?
