Here it comes!

January 20th, 2012 at 09:07 pm

The predicted snowstorm is whiting out the landscape beyond my window. I can't go home for another hour. Others are leaving early, but I have no excuse really, since I live within a couple of miles of work. I can't really say that I have to get on the road.

I was going to grocery shop either tonight or tomorrow morning, but I have a hunch I will be sitting tight instead. Since the next two days are not low-carb days, I should have plenty to eat. And I have cat food and cat litter, the REAL necessities of life!

This has been pretty much a no-spend week. That's good of course, but my timing is little off, since I just got the Citi card, and I have to spend $2000 on it in the next three months to get my $250 reward. Usually that kind of spending is no problem for me, but with my $20 challenge, Christmas over and done with, and no travel in the near future, I now wonder if I will be able to do it!

Oh well, if worse comes to worse, I can have body work done on my car. I've put it off for ages, and at some point decided it wasn't worth doing. But now I'm starting to think that this car might last a really long time and I should take care of the body.

I'm kind of looking forward to being snowbound this weekend -- once I get safely home, of course!

    another option would be to buy discounted gift cards or even ones that aren't discounted to places you normally shop to get to your 2500.00 amount

    Good idea!

    I like the idea of buying the gift cards too. Money that you would spend anyway. I might do that for some of my credit spending I need to do for rewards.

    We had to do that with DH's Chase card--I switched the car insurance and some other payments to his card. Have a cosy night in with some Netflix? It's snowing here too--

    That is a neat idea to buy gift cards!!
