$350 payment to Visa

January 25th, 2012 at 07:44 pm

Another payment to Visa, hope to have it down to less than $4,000 by mid February.

Wish my exercise plan was going as well as the Visa payoff

January 14th, 2012 at 11:43 pm

Didn't exercise today but did sleep for 4 hours this afternoon. Must have needed it!

Paid off another $220 to Visa yesterday. I hope to receive a $100 cheque for last week's side job some time this week to add to the Visa powerpayment this coming Friday. I'll update the side bar again next weeking and add in the interest due this month.

Frugal sandwichs for 20 teenagers tomorrow - ideas?

January 13th, 2012 at 04:12 pm

I have been asked last minute to make lunch for 20 teenagers. I figure 30 sandwiches and a vegetable platter should do it. Is that enough? I have several cans of tuna so that will make perhaps 8 sandwiches. I also have a few vegetarians in the group. Chicken and cheese are expensive where I live. Any suggestions are greatly appreciated!

Friday has great potential

January 12th, 2012 at 01:23 am

Well, the potential for a big Visa payment this Friday is there. I'm waiting on a $100 payment on a side job and another $119 for expenses from work. I'll also add $100 from my pay cheque. Oh, it sounds sweet. Will update on the weekend!

Hey, someone paid me back!

January 10th, 2012 at 12:22 am

Wow, my son paid me back the $70 he owed me and therefore another payment to Visa today. Had a great walk at lunch - it's unseasonally warm - so did my exercise today. And because I've been motivating by all the bloggers who cook once and eat twice I made a pork and rice and veg concoction for dinner. Should be more than enough for dinner and a third meal for my lunch at work tomorrow. I hope it turns out ok. Will update my sidebar shortly.

Another Visa payment and getting active

January 7th, 2012 at 11:02 pm

Did 3 solid hours of decluttering a warehouse today and consider that to be my activity today. Yes, the heart rate went up for quite some time. Also made a payment to Visa in the amount of $60. Good to see some movement getting rid of that debt. So far I've paid off $130 since I started 9 days ago.

A perfect day

January 3rd, 2012 at 07:57 pm

Not often that I have what I consider a perfect day. I'm off on a days vacation after doing too much over the holidays. Today I slept in, exercised, picked up a few groceries for the next few days and used two $1 off coupons. I found 66 cents at the grocery store. I just picked up a retro gaming system for my son on Freecycle and he is thrilled! I also posted a few items to give away on Freecycle. Someone just picked up a couple dozen VHS movies. I'm cleaning the fridge and have $36.00 put aside to pay against the Visa card. $20 was from DH's wallet, $10 was from returns, and the balance was from the change jar up north.

Beautiful sunny day, minus 18C with the windchill (you don't need to convert it to Farenheit - just know it's really, really cold!).

I missed 2 days of exercise getting over what I thought was bronchitis but turned out to be pneumonia. Felling better now thanks to drugs - and lots of them.

Hope to get the Christmas tree out soon.

I have thoroughly enjoyed reading all of the blogs here today. I had to catch up on three days worth. You are all so motivating. I am so fortunate to have SA as part of my life.

Truly an abundant day!
