Dog Clipper Purchase- Puppy Pictures!

March 23rd, 2017 at 09:58 am

We have 2 English Springer Spaniel girls, they are our babies! Here are a couple pics of their unbelievable cuteness!

Reigny and Suneigh Nap Time!


Suneigh Bunny!

Spa day for the girls is $100+ each which includes a bath, haircut, nail trim, etc. MO decided to buy a pet trimmer and try to do the haircuts himself, which would save us a LOT of money. The trimmer was $65 + $15 for a two year warranty. Hoping it works for him to do the trimming as that would save us about $800 a year! We shall see how it goes. Smile

Free Dress!

March 13th, 2017 at 06:36 am



I was walking through the mall last weekend and saw that Torrid had their clearance Buy One, get TWO Free! So I stopped in to see what they had for clearance. The price were still super high, like only $10 off $60 items.....not what I would call clearance. But since you got two items free I looked around and I found a super cute dress that I can wear for weddings this summer! It was $68.90, clearanced to $58.00. Still a lot for me to spend on a dress. But I looked around some more and found this adorable Mickey Mouse purses, they were the same price as the dress, and I could get 2 for free if I bought the dress. So I did that and am selling the purses for $30 each....which means FREE dress for me! YEAH!!!!!
After I did this deal my Mom stopped in and got 3 more of the purses for us to sell as joint items and those ones we can make a little profit on!

$20K Challenge - New auto deposit!

March 10th, 2017 at 08:15 am

Our home mortgage monthly payment changed from $1681.80 to $1672.89, a difference of $8.91 per month. Rather then forget about that $8.91 savings per month, I have set up a new automatic deposit for the same date that we pay our mortgage, to pull $10 from checking to savings! That's an extra $120 in savings with no changes to our cash flow! Smile

Tomorrow we are going to go on a mini casino vaca with our 2016 Weekly Challenge Money. Whatever we bring home we will move to our normal savings accounts. It will be a nice little time away and hopefully we can bring home a good chunk for savings and pass $15K!

Debt Update - 2/17/17

February 21st, 2017 at 12:00 pm

MO and I have 7 days left to make our Feb dietbets, and it is going to be tough! I have 4.5lbs to go! MO has a lot more then that, but like most guys he seems to be able to lose 5lbs a day when he really wants to. Hopefully we can make it and get paid!!

Savings is going really well, but I am worried with me not working any OT the last 2 weeks about my paycheck being sad, but we are spending a lot less too, so that is good. I think I may try to do just 5 hrs a week in OT going forward so that there is still some padding on my paycheck.

Walmart - After Chrismas Clearance (Round 3)

February 20th, 2017 at 01:22 pm

Here is the 3rd and final round of after Christmas Clearance from Walmart. These were on anywhere from 75% - 90% off clearance. I am going to try to slow down on any buying now until I get my inventory down a bit as it is getting very squishy in my "Shop" and I don't want to have to store anything in other areas of the house. Also a lot of this is Christmas items, so I will get it tagged and boxed up for next year, but the non-seasonal items have been selling great!

Some of the items in this batch did not print a regular price on the receipt, so I just guessed or tried to look up and estimate the original price.

Clearance Toy Deal at Kohls

February 20th, 2017 at 10:31 am



My Mom and I both had $10 Kohl's Cash to use after that awesome small appliance deal we did, do we headed over to see what we could use it on. Wow the prices at Kohl's are soooooooooo expensive! There were so many racks and racks of clearance 60%-80% off, and still way more then I would ever pay!

We finally found some toys stuffed on the bottom of some clearance shelves that when we scanned came up 90% off!

So we used our Kohl's cash and my Mom had an extra 20% off card too, each toy was less then $1.00 after the Kohl's Cash! I will list the price before the Kohl's Cash since I already got "credit" for that $10 on the appliances purchase.

I won't be shopping at Kohl's much with prices like this, but I think we made the best purchases we could to not waste our Kohl's Cash!

Mike the Knight - Training Grounds (Bought 10)
Regular Price $24.99
-90% off Clearance
-20% off Sales Card
Final Price for 4 of them was $2.43
Final Price for 6 of them was $2.19
(Price was different because I only had 5 items to use the $10 on, she had 8 items, so the discount spread out more on hers, plus she had the extra 20% off)
(Marked $6.00 each for the rummage sale)

Mike the Knight - Dragon Set (Bought 1)
Regular Price $19.99
-90% off Clearance
-20% off Sales Card
Final Price = $2.01
(Marked $5.00 each for the rummage sale)

Leap Frog - Owl and Parrot Book Set(Bought 2)
Regular Price $9.99
-90% off Clearance
-20% off Sales Card
Final Price for 1 of them was $2.34
Final Price for 1 of them was $2.01

Debt Update as of 2/3/17

February 5th, 2017 at 05:45 pm

Little drive-by update while we watch the Super Bowl (So damn full!!), $674.36 paid down in the last 2 weeks!

MO and I both won our January dietbets and immediately signed up for 3 more each.   So we made a little cash and lost about 20lbs between us.  After today will be getting back on the wagon with that!

Our taxes are filed!  $4011 is our combined refunds for Federal and State.  The majority is going to pay our property taxes to our two rentals, and then the remainder to get 2 new tires and oil change on one of our vehicles.  If anything is left it will probably be less then $100 and I will be letting us have that for some fun money as it is much needed!   Sad to see it all spent so quickly, but those are necessary expenses and I am happy to not have to take that money out of savings!
