I hate to let Anonymous stay at the top of the page for too long, so I'll tell you about how we're spending our money. This time it isn't about envelopes, much.
Our Grand Marquis is rear-wheel drive, meaning it's useless in snow or on icy roads. Last winter we had to use our ancient Ford four-wheel-drive pickup for a solid month because of bad road conditions.
This year, Cliff said, we're getting snow tires. Thanks to budgeting, there's actually going to be money in checking this week to get the snow tires, studded, even. So today's the day. I'll lay odds it will be the mildest winter in history, making snow tires unnecessary, because that seems to be the way things happen. However, it's a comfort knowing we'll be able to get around in our car if there's a blizzard or, more likely in this neck of the woods, an ice storm.
I'm still watching prices on the Nook ereader: Best Buy will have them on Black Friday as a door buster for $99. However, Barnes and Noble has been selling reconditioned ones on Ebay for that price for quite awhile, and the 3G one is only $119. I have my $99 set aside, waiting for the right opportunity.
Amazon has a Garmin for $99 now, so I'm thinking this is the time to get another one, one that's current with new roads. There's nothing wrong with the one we have except that sometimes it thinks we're out in the middle of a field instead of on the road; when that happens, the lady in the Garmin gets upset and yells at us to turn around.
Taxes are due by January 1, and I have that mostly squirreled away in the bank. I intend to pay with a credit card, though, because of the rewards we get for using it. As soon as the bill comes in January, I'll pay it in full.
Did you know there's an extra payday in December? That is perfect timing! If ever humanity needed an extra payday, December would be the time.
Alrighty then, Anonymous has lost his place of prominence.
