Re: Unfrugal habit?

Does it have to be my habit? Mine is probably Netflix, because every now and then I need some mindless entertainment ("now and then" = about twice a month). The rest of the family has an expensive MTB habit. I think it's a racket. It starts with the bikes and helmets, becomes the jerseys and shorts ...

I am a crocheter and I am starting on a project to assist providing lapghans for seniors in LTC homes.
My DD does that, she knits instead of crocheting, though. Also scarves for the homeless. Lots of yarn flows through here :lol:

Re: Sandi's 2021 Planned $avings Challenge

First, the good news: this week is a 'pay' week and the projection for the total toward goal, at month's end, is 28.474% . Yay. That'll probably stand, and maybe improve, by the end of February. THEN, though, some things will happen to impact it and maybe even drive it down a bit :? - from 3/13 to 4...

Re: Sandi's 2021 Planned $avings Challenge

I'll need the cheering on - we just decided that interest earned will NOT count toward the goal tally, because it's passive. Not that there's a lot of it (interest - I remember the 80s fondly ;) ) but I was looking forward to 12 months of it helping at least a LITTLE, and... No. And - 1/1/21 p.m. - ...

Re: Small Goals - Pennies to Dollars

This is exactly what I'm talking about Jackie! It frustrates me when people don't think about their "small amounts of money" as being important. I am not judging - to each their own - but I see people who hit the drive through for a $4 beverage every morning - then go "get lunch" - spending $8 or s...

Sandi's 2021 Planned $avings Challenge

2021's newly hatched plan (DH is the instigator on this one, we'll see how long he's happy he had the idea :lol: ) is to save a [$trangely $pecific - but there's good reason] amount of money. I'll be keeping track of it (in %s) here. Stimulus doesn't count because it won't be saved and it'll just ne...
