Money Saving Day....

February 18th, 2006 at 09:13 pm

Had a good today. Desperately needed new makeup which can cost a fortune, but I ended up paying only $12. I am not brand loyal when it comes to foundation, so I found some on clearance that I also had a coupon for - spent $3 on a $12 bottle of foundation. Not bad. Also picked up my eyeliner (no way around that $5 - it's the only kind that works for me, but it lasts for at least a year) and cheap mascara. May not sound like much of a savings, but makeup is expensive. Didn't think I'd get out of there for less than $30 or so. That $12 is the only money I've spent on myself this month and all I plan to. Go Amy! Smile

Besides our normal bills, we always spend $35 a week eating out, $10 a week for gas, $10 a week to church, and about $70 a week for groceries. I am very strict about sticking to those numbers. Hubby also gets some fun money - maybe $50-75 a month so he can keep up with his gaming addiction (that Xbox 360 could be the death of me, lol!). Any other money goes to the CC's. Compared to the way we used to spend, we are doing really well!

Today I looked at ways to cut down our car insurance. I tried raising our deductibles to $1000 but it was only going to save us $2 a month! I realized it's because our car is so old that it's not worth even getting the comprehensive or collision coverage. Once I switch it we will be spending $70 less a month on car insurance! I am excited! Just want to run it by my dad before switching... I trust his opinion on these matters.

Not much else happening. Getting ready to go to bed so I can get up for church in the morning. Didn't make it last week - really need to go tomorrow!!!!!

Till next time!

    Good idea running decisions past Dad. I used to do that all the time & miss being able to since he died. I now use my uncle!! Told him when Dad died, he was now going to be my designated Wise Counsel!!! I think that is a great piece of financial advice..........run decisions through someone you trust.

    Absolutely! My dad is great with his money and always has the best advice. I don't know what I'll do without him someday! He (and mom) have helped me out in so many ways! I may be almost 30, but I hate doing anything without their approval/opinion, lol! They've "been there, done that" and have the best advice of anyone I know. Smile
