I've also been learning how to coupon. Yes, you heard that right: couponing... For years money burned a hole in my pocket... my hands itched to turn money over to anyone willing to take it for something I didn't really need or in some cases really didn't want. Now, after taking a financial peace class earlier this year and learning how to coupon I can safely say I've learned to hold onto my money. I have saved almost $800 this year alone. My goal is to hit $1,000 before years end. If I don't spend any of my money between now and Christmas I will be $43 short of reaching my goal. Not bad for someone who couldn't save a dime...
Lastly, I've had more computer woes in these last two months than all year long... My computer had a virus or trojan that crashed my computer. My husband worked on it for a month trying to restore it back to normal but in the end he had to take it to someone and have them reset it to factory settings... When I finally got everything back the way I wanted the internet started running slow and ultimately our provider (Windstream) had a mass internet outage. Just got the internet back up and running the other day~
This month I have two photos hanging in our local gallery alongside other wonderful photographers. Last month I had three. It's been a different experience for me to print my photos for a showing like this each month but a very good learning curve. Seems something different happens with each printing. Today I'll be reading my poetry for an open mic downtown. Exciting times for sure. Let me know in the comments below what's been going on in your neighborhood??
