Cha Ching!

My poor little Collage Project. So neglected!

Hopefully we can get this thing up and running again.

If you read my other blog, Caffeine Court you have probably read that I purchased a Pug puppy for my daughters last week. Puppies are expensive little creatures. First there's the cost of buying one. (Yes, I went to a pet store, just to LOOK and I got weak.) Then there's the shots, food, grooming, boarding. You know the drill. The fact that we already have 2 dogs and a cat means we spend ALOT on our pets.

I started thinking about all the other things I could have bought with the money I spend on my animals. My daughter needs a new bedroom set. I need window treatments all over the house. My car is 5 years old. I would love some cool new clothes.

But I chose the dogs. They make us very, very happy.

How about you? What do you like to spend your extra cash on? Is it a great pair of boots? Are you a gal who loves to spruce up your house? Or do you like to take a couple of fancy vacations a year?

Let's talk "fun money."

Eating out, eating out, eating out. It's like my job. I love it. There is nothing better to me than having someone else cook, no mess to pick up, and good friends to visit with. We don't buy a lot of "extra" things and God knows I am not a fashion plate, but somehow we still have no money. When we look at our expenses it's clear...yep, pizza, bagels, girls' night out, another girls night out, mexican, italian. Bad habit...both for our budget and my ass...but I can't give it up!
