Following in the footsteps of My Pretty Pennies, I thought it would be a good idea to answer these questions each week and to track the changes.

The idea is that you list five questions about money and answer them each week. The first four questions stay the same, and the fifth one changes each week. I think it will be fun for us to look back over time and see how our answers have changed!

1. The most I’ve spent this last week was on _____.

Gas. I think I like it like that. It means that nothing crazy happened during the week.

2. Today I feel _______towards money.

Anxious…but in a good way. I’m looking for various ways to make money outside of my 9-5.

3. Money can’t buy happiness. One free/inexpensive thing I did last week that made me happy was _____________.

Enjoyed an excellent church service last week, with great fellowship afterward.

4. I will consider this week a success if I _____________.

Get ahead of my writing at other sites!

5. This year I plan to pay _________ on Christmas gifts and decorations.

$250 – This was our budget before we gained so many ECBs from our Black Friday CVS shopping!

 

So, there you have it! I plan to answer these questions once a week (changing the 5th one), and I hope you’ll join me. Please answer these questions in the comments, and discuss each other’s answers. I also want to hear your feedback about my answers.

Here are the questions without my answers, so you can copy them:

1. The most I’ve spent this last week was on _____.

2. Today I feel _______towards money.

3. Money can’t buy happiness. One free/inexpensive thing I did last week that made me happy was _____________.

4. I will consider this week a success if I _____________.

5. This year I plan to pay _________ on Christmas gifts and decorations.

I know that spending time with your grandson must have been great! Is he part of your motivation for Christmas shopping?

$400 is not as much as I have seen! Actually, two years ago it was $500 for us!

Thanks for the comment, Darwin! You have to come back and let us know if you passed your exam…or at least if you have a good feeling about it. Maybe that cafe mocha helped out!
