I noticed its a good way to assess every area in my life....
run vs strength calendar--So far not so bad, it's just been HOT!! I am trying to get a good day for a 5k. Jackie and I need to register for the one in August this month and i'll be registering for the Marut run.
run with jackie and adam--Still haven't this month it's a must!
playdates--We did one with Heather this month. Now that teeball is ending we can do more in the evening
game nights--still nothing :( I gotta get on my friends
Zak's homework- Not so bad here ethier. We work on letters and numbers a lot, we will continue to.
girls nights--Febreze party to host! I would like my mom, Adam's mom, Amy, Jackie, Britt, and Em :) Plus grandmas and aunts
date night--Never went on a date with Adam for his bday last month,we did go to a wedding. This month we would like to use our free hotel stay.

craigslist--Nothing on the other stuff I put up, Ill repost this month
ebay--Jackie sold a couple things...
cans--We got one bag!! I am going to do it again next week
credit card--my credit card give me 2% cash back. That cash will go to the wedding fund as well. Also, with every purchase I make I round up the dollar and throw that into the money jar.---Me-
expotv--This is just a fun little website that doesn't earn anything towards $$, but little gifts that are a good thing to have, and the points are easy to get.--May 4604pts--I gotta do more in July
inbox dollars--I like this because the revenue is pretty high. I have $11 now and i can cash in at $25. I take surveys, search things and read emails. Also this month i'm going to use coupons from there and get $.10 per coupon!--June $15.36
hits4pay-- this is another read email site. It's really easy to get the $$, but it seems like its going to take forever to get to $25---May $11.24
DEBT IS GONE!!! GO ADAM!!
I have put a lot of money into the house the last 6 months, but man was it worth it! It has brought the house such a nice look! Adam has worked his butt off painting and stuff. I think were an awesome team. But, there's always more to do:
scrub umbrella table--done scrub grill cover--done
- scrub garbage cans--need to do
change lightbulbs (adam)---tried somethings wrong with the lights
garden (check westside market for deals)---I planted it :) Still want to go to westside market with adam Organize Closets put stuff away upstairs get rug in living room steamcleaned Get tiki torches set up Got a new patio set :)
- harvest garden soon
- keep up on weeding booking
- go with girls to get dresses

- have a cookout!
What i'm trying to do is combine all my $$ into 2 accounts. One has over $15,000 the other only $2000, but I am making the second one grow to make $15,000 because then I get a 10% increase in interest at the end of the quarter--still doing this.
close discover accts--closed!
budget 1st pay--I still need to budget...
$1000 to charles schwab--I need to keep a good amount in this acct to fund my roth. This month I will fund it
- split $1000 between house fund $265, emergency fund $265, Roth IRA $416, $20 Zak
close life insurance--I am keeping a policy called a critical illness policy. It's only $15/mo
Change over credit cards- I finally changed everything over.
Refinance- Attempting this again

NRP--Mine expires 10/10, so I need to renew this as well this year. Hopefully after my RNC
CEUs--I have a site that i'm going to start doing my CEUs through after my RNC, I also have my CBLs to do here through lake.
Wedding--Smartypig has us covered. We have $1750 now.
big savings, now 2 accounts building up one to $15000--working on this. I will transfer money from PNC to the account after my bills are paid this month. Not sure how much yet, but hopefully the same each month.
Zak's savings--He needs his savings and his college
retirement--I rolled over my PERS, so I now have a tradiational IRA and a Roth, and a 401k that i'm currently not contributing to.
checking--I will be going through PNC for my main checking. Keeping $25 in first merit, $25 in chase, and $1000 in schwab.
A smart thing I did recently is start buying coupons from this site. It saved me a lot of $$ last week!---I'll be looking this week again
Freezer cooking--I saved a couple casserole recipes I will be trying this month.
healthier snacks--I am choosing healthy!! Though...I love my candy :)
The other day I spent 4 hours cleaning the house. I like to clean that way, but I dont like it taking up my entire day. I am going to adopt Colin's Stradegy over at Hip2Save starting next week.---Actually!! I Think I found something that works!!! Still working on this well.
