Back to Business (of saving)

September 3rd, 2006 at 07:40 pm

Things are getting back to normal for me. My dad is home and recovering very well so now I can get back into the saving mode.

One day last week after leaving the hospital I went into Wal-mart and did my grocery shopping. I did not look over the sale ads or bring coupons. I spent $100 and did not seem to have much to show for it. Now I realize just how much money you can save when you look over the sale ads and compare and take advantage of the BOGO's and coupons.

My best friend took me out to Port Canaveral yesterday (where the cruise ships take off from)in Cocoa Beach for a bite to eat and a couple of drinks. It was a nice stress reliever and I greatly appreciated her generosity.

My sister who just moved to NC (Boo Hoo we have lived within 6 miles of each other our entire lives) told me that the buddy passes for the airlines (her DH works for US Air) are now $75 up from $40 due to oil prices. Sis offered to pay 1/2 but even so I do not think I can come up with $75 so soon (only DD2 and I would go). Maybe in 2 or 3 weeks. I will have to start a savings fund for visits to NC. Her and her DH and kids can fly here for free so we are expecting her to come see us often.

    Glad to hear your Dad is better! When mine is sick it is such a worrisome, stressful time. Get those pennies together to go see your Sis! Remember to scope out your next home while you're there! ;D

    Thank you. I have decided to start a NC fund. My husband and I have decided that we will start figuring out what town we like best by driving around when we visit. He insists that we be between his mom and stepdad who will live in Bakersville in West NC. My sis is in Raleigh. I said ok however I know that my sis and I would be seeing ALOT more of each other then we would see his parents. When my sis lived here we visited twice a week. His parents live 8 miles away and we maybe see them once a month if that.
