My Weekly Money Check-Up 8/8/11

Happy Monday! Here's my Weekly Money Check-Up, courtesy of My Pretty Pennies.

1. The most I’ve spent this last week was
on a payment to our credit card. I'm loving seeing the balance go down! I can't wait to get the official statement later this week.

2. Today I am thankful for distance. There's been a lot of stuff going on back home with my family and right now I'm glad to live so far away. Distance is helping me cope right now.

3. Money can’t buy happiness. One free thing I did last week that made me happy was finished reading another book from the library. Yayyyy for free library books :)

4. I will consider this week a success if I don't need to put gas in the car. If we don't travel much, we can get by with only one tank of gas for the work week. We started with a full tank this morning, so I'm hoping it will last until payday on Friday. Fingers crossed!

5. This time last year was right before I got engaged, got a new car, got serious about my finances and started this blog. A lot has changed in the last year!


  1. I think I'm an addict of waiting for the credit card statements. I hate having a balance on my card sometimes.

    Sometimes I do wish I could live away from family but other days it's a blessing to have them so near.

  2. way to go. I was the same when when getting out of debt, i loved watching it go down.
