Shifting goals

May 24th, 2007 at 12:19 am

Well, now that my house is officially on the market, I can stop pouring money into it! My goal in recent months has been to get it ready for picky buyers. My goal now will be to pay off the credit card debt I incurred.

I really wanted to pay cash as I made improvements, and I did the best I could. But there were unexpected expenses, and I had a tight timetable. I have added about $2000 to my credit card debt. So I'm going to chip away at that. Starting with NO shopping this weekend, no grocery, no nothing. I have enough food -- though I might have some pretty interesting menus with what I have on hand!

I've been invited to a Memorial Day barbecue and I'll have to take a dish. I'm thinking deviled eggs -- cheap and good. I even have the fancy Tupperware carrier.

I haven't spent anything for four days now. I've also had a lot of free meals lately. My realtor treated me to lunch on Tuesday. There have been leftovers from events at work -- good leftovers -- salads and sandwiches, that have provided several lunches and dinners. One day there was a ton of bagels left over from a morning meeting, and I saved two for two breakfasts. I used to feel guilty about grabbing the leftovers, but I don't any more as I've seen them throwing them out. Crazy waste!

I just saw Jeffrey's post about the new blog contest, which got me looking around for the results of the "Confessions" one, and I saw that -- I won?

I humbly thank everyone that voted for me. I've been so busy I totally missed the voting, as well as the third contest!
