PennyAnnPoundwise’s Challenge – A Year of Savings


Penny Ann has posted a challenge on her blog.  Each day you are to post one thing you did to save money that day.  I like the idea of this as it will allow me to think about saving and also see how others save!

Jan. 1st  – I had my Christmas money with me at Target.   I of course browsed the book selections and was tempted to buy one or two.   But instead I came home and reserved both books I wanted to read from the Library.   I make sure I keep a pen and notebook in my purse for this reason. 

I reserved on CD:   Lucky by Alice Sebold and Pillars of the Earth Ken Follett.   Always take advantage of reserving book online from your library.   I received a MP3 players a few years ago and rip the book to my player and I have hours of FREE listening.  This saves me alot of money every year.   Just by not buying the two books I wanted I saved over $20.00. 

January 2nd  – Picked Up my Book on Tape from the Library.  I will listen to the Yiddish Policemen’s Union by Michael Chabon for FREE!  

Made Supper for my family!   The last two weeks while I have been recooperating we have been eating convenience food, fast food or some sort of take out most days!   Now that I am walking so much better I am able to stand and make supper for my family.  I have a pork roast in the slow cooker for supper.   This saves me at least $6.00 as hubby could have picked up burgers off the 99 cents menu again.   YUCK!!
