Ringing in the new year with new debt

We are only into the new year by two weeks and this house is already into another several thousand dollars worth of debt.

Here is how it happened.

P wanted a plasma TV.  According to P, plasmas were endangered and quickly heading into extinction which meant we had to get one “NOW!  NOW!  NOW!”

I looked deeply into his eyes and told him that we didn’t have the money set aside for a plasma TV, and we already have two TVs so we don’t need a third.  I offered him sex if he agreed with me.

He did.

Then the next morning…

P and I carpooled to work and he brought up the plasma AGAIN.  I thought we put this thing to bed (if you know what I mean, *wink* *wink*).  P and I went back and forth.  Since he has way more energy than me when it comes to fighting, I just said “whatever you want to do”.

What my baby wants my baby gets because my baby now has a new plasma TV in our living room.

With the new TV came a new problem.  Our TV stand we currently had couldn’t hold the weight of our new TV.  So now our new plasma TV is now placed atop a new entertainment center.

Then for shits and giggles we decided to look for sectionals.  After all, we couldn’t enjoy the new TV on the new entertainment center with our current “old” couches.  So now our living room is filled with a brand new sectional to enjoy the new plasma TV placed ever so beautifully on our new entertainment center.tumblr_mbg0bv8sn31qjj0j1o1_500

I guess when all else fails it is at least material for my blog!

New Year, New Frugoals!

Happy 2015 everyone!!!!  I haven’t looked out the window yet, but I will be sorely disappointed if it doesn’t look anything like the 2015 featured in Back To The Future II.

Damn!  Hate to spoil it for everyone but just stepped outside and there are no teens riding hoverboards in my neighborhood.

Bummer.

It is always so refreshing to start a new year.  It is like taking a bath after you have accumulated 365 days worth of stench. January 1 we all wake up fresh as a daisy and ready to bring IT the next 365 days.  I have lots of goals (both of the personal, professional and of course, frugoal variety).

I don’t want to lose a specific amount of weight.  I WILL get healthier.

I don’t want life to happen to me in 2015.  I WILL make life happen.

I don’t want to hit a certain number of blog hits or reach “X” amount of followers.  I WILL continue writing and knowing that this blog fills my soul with nothing but pure happiness.

I don’t want to focus on the fact I won’t be out of debt in 2015.  I WILL keep climbing out of debt a dollar at a time.

I don’t want to dwell on negative things from the past or negative thoughts about the future.  I WILL experience life day by day and know that happiness is as simple as appreciation for the moment that you are in.

With all that sappiness laid out on the table what are your goals for this year?

Thanks for spending part of your new year with me!
