It's been nearly a year now since I started this challenge and this blog. It certainly doesn't feel like it! Even though I'm not close to being debt free yet, I still feel like I made some major changes in my life and in my bank account balances. It's really awesome!
I have been doing some Christmas shopping. I used my Pampers points to get some free Shutterfly photo calendars and prints, and even Christmas cards which I don't typically send. Every year I make a calendar of my kids for my ex's parents, and one of all the grandkids for my ex's grandfather (aren't I the best ex-daughter in law ever? :) ) This is a great, cheap way of making grandparents happy, so keep an eye out for free shipping offers from Shutterfly or Snapfish.
I just had a total heart attack because I thought the box with one of the Automoblox and the drum set in it didn't get delivered, but then I remember I stashed it because the kids were here when it came. I literally started crying! What a relief.
I also got my Nine West shoes- and I have to return them both! I don't like the boots and the shoes are a half size too small. I'm a little relieved to return them because of the buyer's remorse. I found out there's a store near me and I'm going to return/exchange them there so I don't have to pay for shipping. I have to go to that mall anyway so it's not a waste of gas.
Sometimes I feel like Doogie Houser MD when I write these... did anyone see the repeat of How I Met Your Mother last week, where they had a Doogie scene at the end? Too funny.
