- Emergency Fund - not much to brag about here; the EF stands at $80. But that's better than $0. Dollar-a-Week Christmas Account - it's up to $66; I'm really excited about this one - it's going to save me come November (Thanks again, Eboo!!)
- Discover Card - I knocked $123 off the balance. Not a lot, but it is going in the right direction and I am sending more than the minimum. Even a few snowflakes in there. I want this one long gone by this time next year.
- Grocery Spending - I think I did really well here. My goal has been to get it to under $150 a week ($650 a month). I spent $528 this month - that's an average of $122 a week.
- No new debt - Done! This is huge, I think. I paid cash for DS2's glasses and for a birthday gift for DS1, among other things.
Writing it down like this gives me motivation to make May even better. Gas prices are still killing us, but bringing down the grocery costs when I didn't think it was possible is helping to offset that.
Baby steps ... game on!
