#27 Spend

Where did your money go this year? Where do you want it to go in 2012?

We were cautious with money this year and only plurged on a new bedroom set in the beginning of 2011.  We saved a bit and only bought essentials like food, gas, pet food and necessary items.  The end of the year had us hitting some sales and getting a new living room couch and chair.  

Having  garage sale brought in a bit of cash that was used as vacation fun money.

For 2012, we want to save, save, save.  We also want to invents in our condo and are looking to add a humidifier, a screen door, paint for our bedroom and possibly refinish the floors.  But, they can be done in stages and none of it is essential.  The rest will be added to our saving account to build it up.  We have  goal in mind for 2012 and we hope to meet it!

We were fairly cautious this year...except for the money we spent going to Europe. Other than that it was pretty conservative. Home ownership takes a lot of money in addition to the mortgage payment, right??
