Weekly update

May 26th, 2006 at 02:59 am

Well it's been a little over a week (I think) since I posted. Things have been going good - just real busy!

Last weekend I broke down and bought a dryer - I paid cash though! Smile I made it a little over a month without one. Our other one was quite old and not energy efficient. This one is drying clothes in less than 25 minutes! The other one took 1 to 2 hours! Frown It's been hard and challenging without one with a large family. It's been a good learning experience for us all though. We have cut the laundry down some - so that's good.

I can read my new meter (electric now that it's digital). I have been checking it every few days and we are using less kwh than we were last month. AND the a/c is on all the time now. Not sure HOW we are doing that yet?!?! When I figure it out I'll let you know.

I know our new pool filter while it cost us $$ is well worth it as it circulates the pool water in about an hour - all of it! Instead of 6 to 8 hours! So that's taking less power.

Need to work on a grocery list and menu. Hopefully I will get to the store in the next couple of days. I am only buying for one week though - so I can see what I spent in May. Smile We were spending 1000 to 1200 and we are only around 400 right now! WOOHOO! Of course I am not sure where that extra money is right now. Frown

Need to start saving for homeowners insurance - needs to be paid by dec. It will be 4 times the amount it was last year. That stinks! It's in our mortgage in escrow - but we will be short about $2700 - so we can send that in OR they can add it to next years mortgage. We don't want that because with the ins. going up anyways it's going to be more for the mortgage than it is this year. We don't want to add even more monthly expenses. So my goal is to start sitting $$ aside for this now.

It's always something isn't it?

I get paid tomorrow so I'll decide how we need to divide that up. Making savings a top priority right now!

Have a happy day!
