Happy Valentine's Day! :)

Happy Valentine's Day! Chris had school yesterday so today was my Valentine's Day. It was wonderful. I got breakfast in bed this morning - eggs, bacon, toast, and chocolate milk. Then we took a double date with our friends to Applebee's tonight. It was a wonderful day. I hope that all of you had a wonderful Valentine's Day.

A tidbit on saving money:
  • Bring your lunch: It's cheaper and healthier! Buying lunch five days a week cost and average of $1,300 per year-and that's just a $5 meal each day. By purchasing lunch only three days a week, you can save more than $500 a year.
  • Pack your snacks: Buying sodas, water and snacks at the office quickly adds up. Buy these items in bulk, bag 'em and bring 'em to work - you'll save about $2 a day. With 260 working days in a year, that comes to $43 a month in savings, or $520 a year
  • Eat out less: Have one fewer dinner at a restaurant every month and save an estimated $60 to $90.
  • Jump-start your day at home: Make your own coffee and heat your own milk, or use flavored creamer, instead of buying a latte. You'll save $3 a day or more than $1,000 a year
