Just a Random Update...

June 26th, 2008 at 02:07 pm

Hmm... it seems that I must have caught the declutting bug too! haha. I did a whole lot of shredding, bundling up newspaper for recycling, consolidating and purging a lot of stuff. Keyword being stuff. I really just need to throw a lot of stuff out but for someway I just convince myself that it has sentimental value to me and hang on to it. Usually later down the line I end up throwing it away or donating it.

My family is all going on vacation tomorrow for two weeks. I'm left here to take care of the house and the cat. Me and the cat are going to be best friends once the two weeks are over, haha. I am sort of looking forward to the empty house... more cleaning and I can actually sit down and focus on tasks with no distractions.

By the way I was able to get 30 items for the food bank donation at work... for less than $20. I was only one out of 4 people to bring food in. I knew it would end up like that. Not that I was keeping score or anything, I actually really enjoy these types of community action projects. The next community action project is back-to-school supplies for underpriviledged kids in our local area. I can't wait for that! I love shopping for school supplies that is so much fun!

Next week I'm volunteering at this event serving food, helping with setup and clean up. I'm not quite sure what organization it's benefiting, I did at one point know, I just forgot. I know the proceeds from the event are going towards helping children.

And as far as financial update... Still no credit card debt! WOO HOO! I'm staying strong. I think as I'm trying to build back up my savings I'm going to put some of that money towards my IRA... at least that way I can get closer to my goal of maxing out 2008 contribution.

That's pretty much it. I'll be back in a couple of days to post end of June Results. (ooOOOoooo scary thought... June is almost over) yikes! Time flies!

    Great job on your decluttering!! It's addictive.

    Great job with the food donations. You've reminded me to take some to my local food bank. I've volunteered there before, sorting food items. I know they always could use good food. From my volunteer experience, I found out that a lot of 'donations' are actually outdated food items.
