Bon Voyage....

September 30th, 2006 at 02:55 pm

Weekend is here. Before now, we'd spend a couple of hundred or more just running "errands" and having no real spending plan. Now, we do Frugal Spending. We have a set limit, a plan, and more frugal adventures. Found the bread outlet today. Got a couple of things there. Bought lunch at a new barbecue place with money my mom sent for me to "do lunch one day." I'll have to send her a thank you. Went to the new mega, mega grocery store (size of a small mall) to see what's what. Bought gas there (regular was 1.89!) and walked through hundreds of people. Paid real close attention to prices and only bought things on our list that were good prices. Left with $8 worth of stuff! Made progress with my credit cards. Have paid off and closed those small balance store cards you collect. But the forum said to keep cards open for credit scores. So I transferred a high interest card balance to a low interest one and put the card into the file. We're going to throw a retirement party for our first retired card. Bon voyage Mr. Credit Card!

    I've never been really too worried about my credit score. But I know my brain's ability to remember stuff. I closed all my credit cards but one - I think. I should double check really. Dang details are a pain. That's why I don't like having more but the one card I use.

    Sounds like you are doing great. I love the discount bakery places Smile Its so rewarding when you make a plan and stick to it. You are doing awesome!
