Fun & Sensible

A little while ago my mom sold some property and decided she wanted to give my brother and I a financial gift for something fun and sensible.  Giving money with strings can be tricky, but these are totally strings that I appreciate and value.

Jordan and I have made some progress on deciding what we're going to do.

  • Drive out to visit Jordan's family in Vancouver (if he gets the time off) (~$350 for gas/road food)
  • Buy Gym Memberships through Jordan's corporate discounted rate ($850)
  • Pay for our Wills/POAs/Personal Directives ($735)
  • Pay off the Escape ($2,700)
  • Baby Fund ($1,000) - bringing the balance up to $5,000
  • Summer Camping with Mom ($700)
A big thank you to my mom for helping Jordan and I achieve some of our big 2014 goals!  




Thank you so much, you're gift really means a lot to us.

October Monthly Spend Summary

I hope everyone had a wonderful Halloween!  We had 104 kids this year!!  Probably $100 or so of this months 'groceries' was Halloween candy.

Some categories were a bit higher, some a bit lower than the average.  As is typical when we spend less on eating out; we spent more on groceries - but consumption stays about the same.  We did have a couple of road trips (as we usually do in a month); which contributed to the eating out that we did do.
