So far so good on our big 36K challenge. Stewart reports at least three times he would have bought himself a little something and passed, and we're both feeling proud of that. We're not going to be able to keep a super-strict view on how each month went; with the way our extra income works, he might work an extra job this month and not get the check for another 6 weeks. So we'll have to play it a little loose and just go by what we actually have in-hand each month.
But we know that keeping an eye on our spending, and working to get extra income, will pay off. This week I've already listed four big eBay items that I've been putting off, and have spread the word that I'm willing to babysit a bit for friend's kids. Stewart's working on some big photography jobs, and doing his part by keeping spending in-check and supporting me when I go out "hunting" at CVS or the grocery store.
How are you guys doing on your New Year's Resolutions?
