Monday's update

May 16th, 2006 at 02:34 am

We now have our EF at 50.23 - not bad for starting it with a $1 on May 10! SmileThe extra has come from ebay and survey checks so far. Whatever the electric bill comes in under budget will also go in there. We are on our way now!

All laundry hung on the racks today as it was supposed to rain - never saw any though. Frown

Well - we bumped the a/c up to 82 degrees today and it was ok in here. Smile WOOHOO! I probably won't be able to go much higher but this is great.

Working on the budget tonight and tomorrow. Dh get's paid this week.

I was offered to work on a new special line for the company that I work for. I am so excited. That line is busy, so that's more $$ towards our goals. I am so excited!!!

Deep cleaned the bathroom today - I didn't have any cleaner so I used shampoo and you know what? It did a great job on the tub! I have a ton of loss leaders/free with coupons shampoo in the closet - so I will be using that from now on to clean the bathroom. I even washed the walls down with a little.

I got the idea from a message board to put up a little white board to keep track of our progress. This helps keep dh involved. He loves seeing the savings going up and the other numbers going down!

I am gonna make up some pumpkin bread, cinnamon rolls and bread tomorrow morning. Gonna do it early, so I don't heat the house up alot. Also decided to make all at one time so I use the energy the wisest way. Smile

    Great job on the EF. It is so important to build one up. Once you get going, it gets so much easier to 'find' the money to add.

    Have fun baking tomorrow...I love to bake, but am not brave enough to attemp it in our hot weather.

    I've been using shampoo to clean the soaking tub now for years & it really works well. Water sheets off of the cleaned area and the shampoo cuts right through any body oils on the tub. Definately a cheaper alternative.

    If it is this hot again tomorrow, both my crockpot and my bread machine are going to do their thing on the back porch. Usually I just use the bread machine to mix the dough and knead it but I bake it in the oven. I will not use the oven during this heatwave again unless I have to.

    It's actually very cool this morning - no heatwave today. Smile That's the reason I decided to bake today.

    Seems like your little white board is leading you in the right direction. It has everyone participating. Keep winning one for the home team, literally.
