We are back from our cruise and had a great time! I will try to get a few pics up and get back into the grind soon!

Free Storage Shelves!!

June 11th, 2012 at 07:00 pm



Went for a walk with DH yesterday and found a storage shelf on the curb for giveaway! I have been wanting one of these for some time to store some of our food and drink surplus.
So I moved all of the rummage sale pop and juice in there. Moved all our Powerades (bought on super sale for .68 each!) cause they were stuck in every cupboard in the kitchen. Also had a surplus of mandarin oranges and Ragu Marinara Sauce that I moved in there. On the top I have the extra dish soap. Now I have more room in our regular cupboards to keep everything nice and organized and not too crowded. Also still have tons of room on the my new shelves for stocking up on super deals!

June 2012 Mortgage Payment

June 2012 Mortgage Payment

Balance $127,750.00
+$292.76 Interest
+$319.07 Escrow
-$1537.95 Regular Payment
-$273.88 Principle Payment($150 change, $15 recycling)
New Balance $126,550.00

We didn't have to pay the mortgage in April or May due to the refinance. April's $1500 I put in savings for a new car. May's $1500 I have saved for a trip we are taking at the end of June, and anything we bring back from that $1500 will go into the EF.

I am thinking for the summer we will just be paying an extra $100 to principle, plus any change we have. Money is just too tight in the summer to put too much extra to the house. Glad to be going back down again!

$20K Update - Met another goal!

June 2nd, 2012 at 06:15 pm

Well this will probably be the last update going up in awhile. During the summer DH makes much less ($1800 a month less!) so we will not be making deposits into savings unless it is unexpected monies (BD money, rummage sale, recycling etc). We just try to make it through without taking too much out of savings and planning ahead as best we can. I have to take $2K out of savings in the next week or two for our spending money for our anniversary cruise.

We did meet the goal for the Sept 2012 savings!
