It all adds up!

January 27th, 2008 at 08:52 am

This is going to be a day of accomplishing things that add up to small savings. Accumulatively, it's the small things that can make a big difference.

It is supposed to be near sixty today, and I am going to do laundry and hang it on the lines, outside, for the first time in months. The sub-zero weather we have had, earlier this month, has not been conducive to this activity!

I am going to make homemade beef and noodles with leftover brisket that is in the freezer.

I am going to make a cake from scratch, that will be dessert for much of the week.

I am going to shampoo the living room carpet myself, instead of hiring someone else to do it.

I will call out-of-state family, because my cell phone service allows unlimited calls on weekends.

I will cut coupons out of the newspaper inserts, but only for things that are not convenience food, and only for things I need.

I will stay at home, and not spend any money!

    Sounds good! I'm thinking of washing the salt off the cars after I consolidate some CC balances, and then I need to start on taxes.

    Ralph, kudos for starting on your taxes this early. We seem to procrastinate until we are pushing the deadline.
    Every year I say we are not going to do that, but we do!

    60?? Oh, how I wish I lived further south! I'm in New England, and, once again, it's snowing...

    koppur, I live in Northern Colorado, and it has been an extremely cold winter. This is a fluke, so maybe it will reach your part of the world this week! We have snow forecast for Tuesday. We have to "make hay while the sun shines"!
