not worrying about budget

April 20th, 2019 at 09:58 pm

well I have decided not worry about the budget while my friend is here...as long as everythig is paid and we get to do a a few things then we will be happy..it is just to hard with everything going on so will figure it all out in july when they have gone back home...

Other than that we are just enjoying doing things together no day trips yet with hubbys b-day, easter, anzac day etc there has just been just to much going on...so will plan some things for may and june...the kids (adults) have also made plans to take her out for the day and do some free things and spend some 1:1 time with her...so should be great

Just need to try pace myself with my illness and the cold weather and vistors

friend has arrived

April 14th, 2019 at 05:09 pm

well my friend has finally made it here...our food budget is way off track but we have had extra people over, a bbq for my hubbys b-day etc...but all bills are paid and we havent really done anything much yet except a little shopping which I bought nothing...so far so good have a few day trips planned but we have 3 months so going to spread them out...and its becoming cooler here as it is fall here...going to try real hard to stick to my budget while she is here so we will see what happens....whats great is my daughter is a cheapskate as well so she finds plenty of free things for them to go and do as well and they just pay for the train ride...parking in the city is expensive and horrible to drive in and the train is so much easier and cheaper.

On another note my hubby hit a small pole at the airport and dented the side of the car a bit...not going to bother fixing it...its an old car and not worth it with the deductible...to me a car is just a tool so Im not fussed and we want to get another one in the next 12-24 months...so will put the money towards that.

added food budget

April 9th, 2019 at 05:27 am

Well we went shopping today got some great deals on groceries but we did extra as our house guest will be here in 1 day...we are a bit excited...

so our monthly food budget is way over and we are having a birthday bbq dinner this weekend for my hubby so that will add to it but we have budgeted for the extra person

other than that things are on track and going well

CC coming down

April 4th, 2019 at 05:53 pm

Have managed to pay off $730 off the dreaded CC so it is coming down slowly...will take a few months and not happy that it is this high but sometimes you just have to use it...but making progress..

my first goal is to get our ice account back to $2000 then get $2000 into an account for when wmy friend is here...guess we need to buy her a ticket home LOL...she could live here forever but I think she would miss her family a bit....

then it will be onto the CC and then onto saving for a house....
