There are only 133 days until the "C" word.
I know who really wants to know this in the middle of a stinking heatwave???
However it will be upon us before we know it. Already the nights are starting to draw in. It's now dark until after 6 am. Despite this stinking heat the nights are a little cooler. So it is on the horizon.
This year though I am no where near as organized as I normally am, basically because our son is getting married the beginning of January, so it will be a low key Christmas, as we are all travelling to the Bahamas for his wedding.
As most of you know I put money in pots each week for various things. Been doing this for years now. I have three pots; a birthday pot, a Christmas pot and a "other thing" pot. I have a healthy $620 sitting in the Christmas pot. So will keep adding too it weekly and it should cover everything.
The "other thing" pot will be saved towards spending money and payment towards our vacation/wedding. I put a deposit down with the travel agent the other day so that $300 will come out of that pot. The rest of the money in that pot will be saved and converted into US $.
The birthday pot will take a big hit in September as it's Sammy's, son-in-law's and dh's birthdays. The good thing though is I know I have enough money to cover everything, It's a lifesaver those pots.
Back to the "C" word though; a lot of thought is going to have to be put into this, this year as I seriously want to cut back, plus we have two new members in our family..........
Have you thought about the "C" word yet? Have you made plans for it?
