Turkey day!

February 16th, 2014 at 01:05 pm

Boy it has been awhile since I have posted. I have been lurking though...

I want to get a better hold of our money issues so here goes.

I cooked a turkey yesterday and it turned out great. Today I am boiling the carcass for stock and making turkey soup for dinner. I will post each day what this turkey will be used for. I bought it around Thanksgiving for .37/lb.

Spent $837 on my SUV Friday. Things that have been needing to be done. They said I need two new front tires, but they are okay. I am going to get them rotated though. There still is decent tread. That money was earmarked to replenish out emergency fund so that is a setback.

DD needs to take her car in next. Something about the catalytic converter. We will get that checked on tomorrow.

DD and I are also going to prom dress shopping tomorrow. I have set a budget of $150. May go a little over but I don't see the point of spending a lot for a dress she will wear once. We are going to pop some tags also. She doesn't usually like to go, but loves it when I find some Miss Me's or a coach bag. Lol.

    Although you had other plans for your money, using it to keep the vehicle going is a good thing. Your turkey soup sounds good on a cold winter day.

    My friend found a dress for her daughter's prom for $18 last year! I hope you can find a good deal. I would suggest not looking at just the prom racks, but other dress racks....maybe holiday dresses that our now on clearance.

    If DD is taking her car in for servicing, I suggest checking her car's manual to see if there is something due based on mileage.

    Mmm, I can just smell the turkey stock cooking!..."Pop some tags" Does that mean go to a tag sale? never heard the expression.
