Money, Money, Money

Inflation hasn't ruined everything. A dime can still be used as a screwdriver.
~ Quoted in P.S. I Love You: When Mom Wrote, She Always Saved the Best for Last, compiled by H. Jackson Brown, Jr. ~

Today I’m working on finances, part of my 2009 goals/resolutions I shared on Jan.1. I don’t want my goals to be just words on paper, they need to be actionable and I need to be accountable for taking action. So I am.


Taking a hard look at our finances is an imperative as the economy teeters about like a seasick sailor. We use Microsoft Money to track our checkbook, savings, investments, and all that stuff. I’m updating it all this morning and then am going to read this book I got for free.

Suze Orman's 2009 Action Plan

If you’d like a free copy, quick hop over to Oprah’s site and download it in PDF version. Hurry—the offer expires January 15!

Just knowing where we are financially this week will free me to enjoy the weekend. See ya’ll Monday!

MY husband and I use the Microsoft Money program too June. It's very helpful to keep track of everything dealing with finances in one place.

Thanks for the info about the free PDF.

Have a fun weekend -- we'll be spending ours shoveling snow as we are expecting a snowstorm. Free exercise!

Hugs, Pat

I could use some tips on financial management.

(I can't believe I just downloaded a book from Oprah's website.)

I watch Suze Orman on CNN often, especially here lately. I really like her. She has common sense, and she talks about financial things in a concrete, and very easy to understand way. It's a generous offer for her book. I appreciate knowing about it. Thank you Junie Moon!
