Small goals accomplished!

September 23rd, 2011 at 11:40 am

*Stuck to my no-eating-out challenge this week (with Lucky Robin).

*Emerged from the Stone Age to set up automatic monthly payment from my bank account for my telephone (includes landline, voicemail and DSL) and electric bills starting next month.

*Made heating oil choice and will go sign up with first payment today before 5:00 p.m.

So now some new mini-goals:

*Commit again to no eating out next week and probably this weekend unless a fun opportunity presents itself! (Hope LR continues, too.)

*Start calculating 2011 OOP medical expenses so that I can submit a reimbursement claim to my HSA. I just found out that I can get up to the total amount back even if I havenít fully paid into it yet (the deductions are made each paycheck). I had no idea Ė I thought I could only claim what Iíve already contributed for the year!

*Continue creating monthly expenditures spreadsheet and start using it for October (recording budgeted and actual amounts).

The no-eating-out challenge for me also includes not impulse buying junk food out of boredom or cravings. Iíve been able to resist all unnecessary food purchases this week and hope to continue next week, too!

I'll be celebrating later this afternoon with two friends at a work picnic. Free food - yippee! Smile

    Yep, I'm on the challenge through the end of the month. Possibly much longer, but it's always harder when DH is home.

    Wow, that is great about your OOP health and insurance costs, I would have made the same assumption that you did. I hope that it leads to a nice refund for you!
