Weekly Money Checkup


Weekly Money Check-Up is a weekly series on My Pretty Pennies.

1. The most I've spent this last week was on credit card payments. We pay them off in full every month, and I'm now putting work expenses on there for the points (and getting reimbursed in time to pay the bill!) so it's a pretty big transaction to authorize! We also transferred more money into the house fund, which made me happy.

2. Today I am thankful that I moved out of New York in time to avoid Halloween Octsnowber. :)

3. Money can't buy happiness. One free thing I did last week that made me happy was rearrange our living room. Peanut fixed my computer (which wasn't free) and we moved it out to sit next to his instead of being in a different room. I feel much better about the arrangement (we spend a lot of time on our computers), even if it's not the prettiest.

4. I will consider this week a success if I finish a presentation for work - I've been trying for weeks to get it done, and it's due next week, but I haven't been able to get the information I need. I made kind of a stink about it to the people who are delaying me this morning, and I'm finally getting some responses. Hopefully I'll get everything I need, and soon.

5. This year for Halloween, Peanut and I dressed up as Westley/The Dread Pirate Roberts and Buttercup from The Princess Bride. I've been working on these costumes all month long, and I'm really pleased with how they turned out. They weren't as expensive as buying costumes, but given all the time I put into them, we will wear them for several years just to make it worth it! :) We wore them to a party on Saturday night and will wear them again tonight to pass out candy.
