Raffle Win!

October 9th, 2010 at 02:57 am

I bought a raffle ticket for $5 for a good cause...and found out today that I won a $100 visa gift card!!! YAY! I am going to put this $100 towards the vacation fund.

I got my Directv bill today and have shaved $56 off the monthly bill by cancelling HBO, Showtime, etc..($36) and because I referred two people (2 x $10)- the bill is still higher than I want, but Im not ready to shave more right now so I will be happy with this savings!

I did great on meals this week. Ate at home every night...had one lunch out...and bought two coffees. Cost of these items $17.

Last weekend, my friend gave me her coupon for 30% off at Kohls. I bought the grandbabies clothes for Christmas. The full price would have been about $430.., actual cost $186 PLUS I received $30 in Kohls cash. what a deal! And with 6 grandbabies...I need to make those dollars stretch as much as I can!! The Kohls cash will be used with my new 15% coupon to buy my 'friend' gifts.

Today was payday...and my new budget worked great. Bills are paid, money in savings, a little spending in the pocket, grocery money is set for the now to make it work!
