January 2010 Recap

We did well on our budget for the month of January. We came in under in most of our categories, except for electric (which is really from December), and gas, which is a long story, but basically hubby filled the tank of this random guys car. So all things considered we came out even for the month. Yay!!!

1. We saved $1,140 between our house and car funds.

2. Our E-fund increased by $85.

3. I finished 8 books this month (Patterson's 3rd, 4th and 5th, Kristen Billerbeck's Ashley Stockingdale series, Scoop by Rene Gutteridge, and Belle in the Big Apple by Brooke Parkhurst)

4. With the exception of the first week, I've been to the gym once a week (baby steps, people!!!), I've done The 30 Day Shred once a week, and I've been on the Wii Fit at least 4 times a week.

5. It's not a trade...but I've been working on a 1000's piece puzzle I got for Christmas from my MIL of my families country.

6. I've thought about going through things to get rid of, but the motivation just hasn't been there.

7. I called a friend just to chat, and I called another one to make plans instead of our normal texting. I also met up with a friend I haven't seen in months!

8. 17 no spend days!!!

9. I'm working through Matthew currently. I'm definitely not as consistent with it as I should be. :-(

10. No updates.

Let's see what February brings! :-)
