More savings, working away... and a find!

September 11th, 2010 at 12:10 am

After getting fed up with a competitor, two of my kiddos changed their TV subscription to Directv this week. Since I have an account with Dtv, the kids each save $100 ($10 per month for $10 months)...and I will save $100 for each referral- or $20 per month for 10 months. Add that to the money I am saving by cancelling the movie channels, and I am now saving $56 a month on that bill!!! yay

I am still organizing the house today. I came across a little basket on a top shelf and found $80 in gift cards that I forgot about! $30 for Kohls and $50 in movie gift cards!! WOW.

I also have been putting all the change I am finding in a little cup and have accumulated quite a bit of loose coin. I will take it to work with me on Monday and trade it in and make a deposit to the vacation account.

I spent $81 at Target today. Got a rubbermade chest of drawers for $44 (on sale from 59) that will give me some great extra storage space, a couple of rubbermaid tubs for DD3's left-over 'stuff' and some cleaning supplies.

It will feel soooo good to get this project DONE.

Yesterday, we bought a pork loin at Costco for $18- 1/2 I cooked in the crockpot to make pulled pork for the weekend, and the other have we cut into pork chops. We have enough for 6 meals.

Happy with my progress so far...the more I do, the more I think of to do better...I am doing things like evaluating how I am using cupboards...moving less used things to higher and lower shelves and reserving prime storage for everyday items...

now I am off to vacuum shelves in the garage...loving vacation...and loving life!!!
