Frugal deeds for the week: We had snow for Christmas - so, we postponed our Christmas lunch until Wednesday (for my dad). It has been great having this time off and for the most part - after our condo maintenance trip, I have been lounging. Today, I started deep cleaning - to get ready for the New Year. Believe me, I still have a long way to go - and I have the family pitching in. Tomorrow, my daughter and I are having a "Girls' Day Out". We are going to touch up each other's hair, do our nails, etc. My daughter has been invited to a NYE party, so, we will be making cranberry scones, raisin scones, and will include a bottle of grape juice sparkling cider. This Thursday, when we get paid, we plan to pay-off the rest of our HELOC. We will start the New Year off totally debt-free again - no HELOC, or any other kind of debt. Last week we got our retirement accounts in order - now, we need to concentrate again on the education fund for our daughter. My New Year goal is to have the education fund to $XX dollars.
