Archive for August, 2011


August 7th, 2011 at 10:12 am

In one of my previous posts, I mentioned what the next ten years would probably bring me. One of them was that "I will probably be a grandma". Well, I am gonna be a grandma a little sooner than I had anticipated. I believe my grandbaby is due sometime in March. Don't know the exact date yet, but will need to set aside an account for the baby to cover things like: baby shower, car seat, and just the needed items that grandma's need.

Also, working a lot of extra hours at the Club before the end of the 2011 season, which is 4 weeks away. Need to get as much extra cash as I can in my savings account.

Big ticket items that will need to be paid:
*Summer taxes.
*School curriculum and classes for my 16 year old.
*Buy myself a vehicle.
*Christmas and two birthdays in December.

Got paid for another Pinecone survey. Adding $3.00 to the passive income category.

Previous Amount: $273.69
Add monies: $3.00
New Total: $276.69

I need to rework my budget and call on some of my bills to see if I can get a better less-expensive plan: Cable/internet/landline phone bill, Re-work cell phone bill, vehicle and homeowners insurances.

Plus, I need to start doing some fall harvesting: Freezing, canning, storing, menu planning, stockpiling, etc., to get my grocery bill lower.
