February Goals in Life



- 2 days a week do bootcamp at the Y, EA sports or run other days-This is going well. I was sick a week this month, but otherwise, pretty good. I also notice the painesville YMCA now has bootcamp, so I may hit that up Mon and/or Wed nights!

- Zak library days once every couple weeks--Fridays after school are going well!
- Meme's house once a week for dinners--So far so good, I love it!
- start a book--finished it! I need to finish the one I got now.
Vanishing Acts
The Next thing on my List
- date nights/family nights 1 day a week--Sat/Sun--Adam started his new job. This week has been nuts, so I think we will like it when this month slows down

Make Money
- inbox dollars: Current balance $29.06 :)
- coupons: Didn't do much last month and probably not this month ethier, unless its NEEDED
- expo tv: Current balance: 8539 (Goal: 60000)
- hit 4 pay: Current balance: $12.58
- beeZag: Current balance: 2210 (goal 8000)
- ebay: still stuck here...

- washer and dryer (pay off in Jan)--well this didn't work out. I think i'm gonna wait for my tax return and pay this off. For now I want to do my normal "Savings" contributions.
- Pay off credit card every 2 weeks--yucko this past month.

- Clean out closets (Jan,March,June,Sept)--Did mine for Jan.
- Randi clean once a month--hopefully next week

2011 budget

all year savings
- $500/mo wedding (from PNC acct)
- Zaks $25/mo in savings and budget for camp ($115/week for 10 weeks i believe) (from charles schwab acct)
- House funds and Emergency fund $100 in each/mo (was $265/mo for both accounts, but i'm decreasing it next year) (from Charles Schwab acct)
- Roth $416/mo (from Charles Schwab acct)
= $13,692 + $1,150 for camp = $1236/mo then bills. ($756 transferred to Charles Schwab account from PNC acct)

then: $50/wk groceries
         $50/mo gas
         $60/mo cleaning lady
         $72/mo electric
         $790/mo mortgage
         $182/mo in car gas
         $20/mo life insurance
         $40/mo entertainment (people over, going out etc)
         $30/mo pharmacy 
         $20/mo fast food (we are no longer buying out coffee)
         $110/mo gifts
         any auto repairs i'll pull from savings
         $180/mo cell phone and home internet
         $100/mo house stuff/decor etc

=$2990 total 

This is gonna be a tight year. I'm not looking to updating anything in the house, just repairs.  Notice I dont have anything for clothing lol. I just hope we dont spend $110/mo on gifts or $30/mo pharmacy etc. I'm getting off my birth control soon, so that'll save me $15/mo too.

- Work wed&thurs sat/sun
- hopefully get a Nurse Facilitator Job!
