QUICKIES ala Broken Arrow Style

*Adding to the Challenge money from CashHappySon donation.

$35.43 balance
+00.83 generous manchild
$36.26 Jan MTD

2007 Challenge $36.26
Cumulative Total $162.37

*FrugalSon worked yesterday, Hubster dug out ice in driveway and CashHappySon and I went to the movies to see Night At The Museum which was pretty cute. Somewhat better than I expected. Of financial note is that our matinee movies have now gone up to $2.25 from $2.00. Have to readjust my yearly entertainment budget now from $24.00 to 27.00! OWWWWWW!! Big Grin
Not painful, but still I'd rather that they hadn't hiked it! Even a quarter makes my Frugalicious Gene (TM) pucker!!

*FrugalSon got a dime raise on his check yesterday.

*I got headhunted for a very nice job - went for the interview - turns out it would be commissioned based sales and I'm just not interested in sales. Was nice to be sought out though and the commissions would be quite substantial but still I'm just not into sales - I've done it before and it's not quite my cup of tea.

*Hubster and I went and spent about 3 and half hours picking out the doors and hardware for our interior/exterior doors and they are now coming up w/a quote as much of it will be custom cut to fit our odd sized doorways. Hoping to get loads of the doors done for little cash, but that might be asking a bit much!

*Quote for CashHappySon's car insurance is ridiculous. Both boys are going to go together and each pay their own amount based on their respective vehicles, but they'll get a multi-car discount. Still, too much though!! OUCH!!! Hubster and I do not want them on our insurance - as we would hate to be financially liable if they were to seriously hurt someone in a car accident.

*Estimate from the country treasurer says that our house taxes are going up by a mere $5.00 next year - which isn't too bad you know! Big Grin

*Think I'll go drink a cup of serenity!

    The cheapest Matinees here are 5.00. I've basically stopped going.

    Wow - I am jealous at $2.50 - I might actually go once in a while. Matinee here is more like $7.50 - yeah right. pffffft. We pretty much boycott the movies overall and watch netflix. Aw, thank of all of us when you pay $2.50 - LOL. Wink

    In the next town over they have a movie theatre that charges $2 for second run movies(you know the ones that have been out of a while), and on Wednesday they only charge 50 CENTS! Of course, you sit in very packed movie theatre on Wednesday'sWink
    BTW Lux,
    I love how you have "manchild" listed on your challenge money. Every time my son asks why he has to do the hard chores like shovel the snow off the sidewalks, I tell him because he's the "manchild" and that's what guys do!LOL

    lol... there's a second run movie theater in town (20-30 mins away) where the movies used to be .50 per person... since i only had class Mon/Wed/Fri and DH used to work nights we would go on weekdays as a date maybe once every couple of weeks...we liked because it was cheap and uncrowded... now that he works days and it's gone up to $1 per person we're much less likely to go...it's only .50 cents more ($1 more for both of us) but it really just changes the feel... plus since we can only go later it's much more crowded and neither of us is a fan of crowds...
    for now, we'd rather borrow them or buy cheap used DVD's ... in fact, we have a stack downstairs just waiting for us to watch...
