Feeling Good

November 20th, 2008 at 12:40 pm

Got a free 21 lb. turkey today from my supermarket. It was a promotion if you spent 300.00 or more over several weeks you were eligible for a free turkey.
We bought 2 boxes of stove top stuffing and the turkey to our nearest shelter. The shelter was just recently on the news b/c this year donations were far off from previous years due to the economy. They were very appreciative at receivng the turkey. That made hubby and I feel really good.
We also donated 25.00 to our local food bank.
25.00 to our local mission and 25.00 for
ASPCA.
I made some cuts to our budget this past week. I cut off a phone that we hardly use(landline). It was costing us 33.00/mnth. Put the YMCA on freeze for a while(67.00/mnth). This still holds our membership but stops them from automatically taking money from my checking account while I'm not using the gym. I also reduced my amount that I was putting into my sharebuilder account. I stopped putting money into my daughters savings and IRA(500.00).This money will be applied first to my outstanding credit card balances and then when they are finished the money will then go to the Florida mortgage.
Not any great savings at the supermarket this week. I will be making a roast beef tonight with mash potatoes and broccoli.

    Nice job with the charity. I have to formulate how I am going to givr to charity.

    I don't tithe so I was seeking of starting a foundation and funding it with 10% of my gross then giving from that.

    I just have to research about if it makes sense to even start a foundation this small.

    But again, you should feel great for your giving.
