Our family had a great Christmas filled with good food and wonderful family. My boys had 10 days home for winter break. Unfortunately some of that time was spent with one or more of them being sick. It seems our family has had it all already. The respiratory bug, the stomach bug, hopefully it is all done and over with for the season (fingers crossed).
Our new year's was filled with more good food and some time well spent with good friends from out of town.
Now that the holidays are over it's time to buckle back down on our spending. On the top of my "to do" list is to revisit our budget and make necessary changes. As usual we have had many expenses pop up. We had 2 vehicles break down, a daughter who is having surgery in a week, and we are still paying for my husbands very expensive new teeth (2 root canals and crowns in November). There is never a shortage of people wanting our money!
I plan to start posting more and am excited to share with you some ways my family will be living more frugally and saving money in the new year.
I hope everyone enjoyed the holiday season. Now it's time to get back on track, get those bills paid, and start saving some money!
