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 :)
