$$, Pineapples and Spongebob

On the money front, I received some great news!  One of kiddo's therapy bills was overpaid so I have a credit!  Woohoo.  I'm hoping to catch up the other therapy bill and start the new year with a zero balance.

Now on to pineapples.  We love pineapple.  So much so that I was buying 3 to 4 cans a shopping trip.  I was paying about $3.50 for 4 cans.  Then, one day I decided to buy a whole pineapple for $2.  I cut it up and ended up with the equivalent of 6 or 7 cans.  The whole pineapple tastes sooo much better. Can't believe it took me this long to figure it out!

Speaking of pineapples...one of the kiddos bought a dvd today with their own money.  It was a Spongebob Christmas two pack at Walmart.  The 2 pack costs $14.94 and there was a sticker on the front for a free movie ticket up to an $8 value. You redeem a code online and print out your movie cash!  So easy and convenient.  Two dvds and a movie ticket for 15 bucks.  I thought that was a great value. 

I'm hoping by next post, my debt totals will reflect one less credit card! Although this year did not prove to be as productive as I would have liked, I  have to focus on the positives. Our debt did not defeat us but instead motivated us to make changes in our lives for the better.  A zero balance is no longer a dream but a very attainable goal :)

I certainly have not been as productive on debt as I like, but I keep paying for things so i must be okay or stupid? Fresh pineapple is so good but do not put it in jello it will not set. You have to use canned.

Thanks for the tip :) Debt can sometimes feel like its neverending but everytime we eliminate a credit card it gets us that much more closer to zero.
