forgot about the sew bill! oops

January 30th, 2007 at 02:04 pm

Well, when I bought the house, I knew I was going to have a sewer bill to contend with & I had a montly amount in my budget, but for some reason, I didnt remember to prepare for the bill for this year. I just got a bill for $167.32 due 2/28/07. It'll cover the year of 2007. Since I just bought the house 3 months ago, the sewer savings doesn't have that amount in it yet. So I used my overtime & savings from this paycheck to pay the sewer bill in full. It'll set me savings plan back a little bit, but so be it. At least I have the cash on hand to handle the bill.

On the upside, I did a little overtime yesterday. AND my parents took me to see The Departed--surprisingly good!

Ima's post about frugal things we did today got me thinking. I've been getting a little lax in some areas, so my focus is going to be to focus on the little things. Today I packed my lunch, drank only water. I'll be premaking food for tomorrow as well, I have plenty of tv to enjoy & this weekend I'll enjoy the movies from my free trial from Netflix.

I also have several library books to get through. I just finished Plum Lovin' by Janet Evanovich. That series is REALLY good. Very funny.

    Its one of her In Between the Numbers books. I realized that I must have missed one of those because I didnt recognize one of the characters. I did a little online investigating & realized I missed Thanksgiving. I put it on my reserve list at the library.

    This is a little off topic but I think people will find this info useful. My husband and I have been looking for a house in the Portland area and at first we were using Zillow, but after getting valuations that were not very accurate I tried housefront.com and found the information much more reliable. I was even able to use my cell phone to text message information about homes while we were driving around.
