I would love to start backward but we get dinged with vehicle registrations this month.... I may do that in 2014 so that I have more spending money at Disney!!!

Yes, we lost $67 a check.... that's 2 tanks of gas..

That's the one! We met some friends there and the kids skated for a few hours. My son also had his birthday party there last year and my daughter the year before!

So far so good this week. Haven't eaten dinner out yet: saving for tomorrow. DS wants Denny's for Hobbit meals & trading cards. Used my 2 lunches out for this week, so need to plan accordingly tomorrow so I don't get stuck between grocery store & Target with 2 hungry kids. Need to get some toy storage boxes while on sale at Target so that need million piece toys remain together & hopefully organized. Between Imaginext Castle & Batman there are hundreds of little pieces, guys & accessories that (hopefully!) will remain together in a clear plastic shoebox instead of me individually trying to match the pieces back up later after I have "helpers" help me put toys away. Sometimes the help is worse than no help. ROTFL

It's been a very productive morning for me so far! I am selling my kids old books. Sold $18 to one person, $25 to another, and then $15 for some baskets.

Awesome job Carrie!!!
Hopefully you tucked the first $3 away for the first two weeks of your 52 week savings plan and did something nice with the extra!!!


No spending today we are staying home!! No spending tomorrow as we will also be at home... next week should be pretty much a no spend week because school resumes!!!

Thanks! I am going to keep all the money I make selling things saved for spending money for spring break. I'm going to do the 52 weeks out of the regular budget. I think for the first couple of months I will just deposit a months worth at once though since the amounts are smaller.

Good idea on the selling = spring break money!!!

We are staying home this spring break since DD is off in college (and of course her break is a month before the boys' break).. the boys were asked and they didn't want to go anywhere if DD couldn't go with us...
