Weekly Money check up!
1. The most I’ve spent this last week was on gas but in my defense I have a full tank of gas sitting in my garage and ½ in my car. And Thursday is payday so I am not really worried.

2. Today I am thankful for options. I have the option of changing around how I much I can put towards certain things and despite being in debt I also have savings. I like have the options that that buffer provides me.

3. Money can’t buy happiness. One free thing I did last week that made me happy was I went to see my BF he makes me happy.

4. I will consider this week a success if I get my car window fixed (its raining as I type this and I am thankful for underground parking at work). Also if I get all my TODO’s done tomorrow.

5. If I could have coffee with one blogger, I would choose Upendilife, I was watching The Lion King the other night and I was thinking about him while I was watching it… is that weird? But I want to come see him bc how cool would it be to give the lowdown on a country by a local! I would love to meet Towards Retirement with Debt, she was the first person to welcome me into the blogging world and she’s dropped off it now… I miss her. Oh who am I kidding I want to meet everyone!! Because I feel like your all such good friends.  Actually Little lamb and I talked about getting together… what ever happened to that idea?

Oh PS: Eboo I might have baskets for you. I just have to check I am not sure if we got rid of them last year or not.

No spend days: 142 + 3 (this week)= 145


  1. The most money I've spent this week was on gas too. We filled up our dog-sitters tank, and then my tank and the BF's tank all within an hour last night!

  2. That is weird :) but I am more than touched. That's a tough question to answer but if I had to answer it you are definitely at the top of my list but choosing one almost seems unfair. The one blogger that I feel most similar too is definitely you despite the gender difference.

    I'll do you something better though, if you are ever visiting the island I'll definitely hook up with you and be a tour guide for a few days if you wish and I plan to visit Canada sometime within the next 10 years(haven't set the day in stone yet) so if you hold that option open and I am close that coffee is definitely possible.

    And I was wondering how come your gas prices were broken up on the same day but I see now you have some in your garage. Great week you had there. I hope this one is even better.

  3. You may have some baskets for me? You are so sweet to think of me!
    Yeah, we gotta get Little Lamb to make the date for the South western ontario blogger meet-up. :)
