Our 2016 Mission And Our Favorite Person
I half-assed worked on the insurance. My lovely Aunt(Hi Aunt Ruby!!) told me about U.S.A.A. You have to be military or related. Since my father isn't alive, we can't sign up under him. But my FIL was in the military so I'm going to suggest it and then if he signs up, we can too.
I worked on our property taxes. We were the highest paying home in the subdivision. Bastards. I guess our money taste better than everyone else's. Sigh. I called and politely argued. Den told me to start with nice. Why does he think that he has to remind me of these things? Dumb ass, I know this already and have great manners! ;p Anywho, come to find out we never got a $6000 deduction the entire time that we lived here. Lucky us! We now get the deduction which will save us $700ish a year off the bill. We lost about $10k in the 21 years we have lived here. Ouch. I'm going to try and fight to get the bill lowered as well. But I can't do that until June. Nothing like stretching out a fight.
We have been working on the yard. For some reason, it seems to take longer and longer every year to get it in shape. We either have more things every year or we are getting older. Ha ha, I was at the bread store one day this week and they had a sign out that if you were 50+ you got a senior discount. I thought about how old that was and then realized I'm 6 years away. HOLY SHIT, BATMAN! I'm pushing 50. Oh well, I still have perky tits so I'm cool with it.
And my favorite person is $12 a day!!! She fights the good fight with money. I love how she tracks it and is so honest about it. And she is in MI and the weather is still cold. I feel her pain.
Have a great and frugal weekend! What are your plans? Planting? Yard work? Saving money?
In the dirt,
