Not Much

Not much to report.

I paid off one of the credit cards with this check.

My first goat deposit should be arriving in the mail this week. They won't be going to their new homes until at least May, but I'll be sad to see them go. They are such fun, and husband has really participated this year. We go out and play with them every day when he gets home, and he even built them a play ground.

Goat money will be used to build up my animal fund cushion, pay for hay, and pay for testing.

Friday I should see a big jump on my goals. I will have about $450 to put towards something. So that is exciting! Plan to finish the 2015 Roth contribution, and apply the rest towards the computer.

Husband just had to buy a set of new tires for $350, ouch. His tires were so bad that he was having to fill them up several times a week. If you stood beside the car you could hear the air leaking out. He purchased them USED several years ago. They were bald and dry rotting, and he had several plugged holes from running over things like screws. So at this point it was a matter of safety. We were really hoping to purchased a "new" car for him before he had to replace them, but we couldn't put it off any longer, and instead he is going to try to get a while longer out of his car.

This will give us more time to save for a car purchase, and also pay down some debt / figure out the remodel first. Just hoping his 1994 car keeps trucking.

    Newer tires, might make the truck easier to sell than if it had those bald tires on it. But always safety first!!

    when i was in my 20s i discovered you could buy retreads for far less than new tires cost, but no way would i ever do that again. Although i think they were guaranteed for x amount of miles and/or time, i had them fall apart and shred on me while i was dangerous!

    Good tires are always a must.

    Sorry about the cost of new tires, but it sounds like they were needed.

    Tires are not cheap! At least they weren't snow tires.

    Good tires are pretty important. Glad he's got good ones now!
