Still waiting...

February 2nd, 2006 at 10:45 pm

for DH's W-2 that is. Otherwise our taxes are all done. I hope this arrives either today or tomorrow - I'm anxious to have this DONE. I'm pretty sure we'll be getting a refund back and I want to get that money into our savings account. No specific 'plan' for it - I just want to see another bump to the savings account =)

I got my retro check the other day. It wasn't quite as much as I thought it would be - but then again, I didn't think I'd receive it until the end of February. I'm very grateful to have gotten it. We've already put it to very good use!

I bought 50 shares of a pharmaceutical company that I think has real potential. We'll see how it works out. If it picks up a bit we may buy a few more shares.

We had another great weekend at the grocery store last week!! The total before coupons and our loyalty card was $144.00!! OUCH. After the card and all of our coupons, the total came to (drum roll, please)...$62.00!! We saved over $80.00!!! We thought that was great, especially considering we bought 10 pounds of boneless, skinless chicken breasts, a flank steak and a London broil. Of course, we bought other things, too. Groceries (along with everything else!) have gotten so expensive. As such, I've really been making a huge effort to plan in advance, use coupons and only buy items that are on sale with the club card. So far, so good - it's really been paying off =)
