Happy Valentine’s Week! Valentine’s Day is one of my favorite holidays because I love flowers and beautiful pink and red decorations during the otherwise drab winter.
We are having a quiet weekend because DD is down with a head cold. Sometimes it’s nice to just stay around home and appreciate what we have here instead of going in search of more.
DH received an email about a class action lawsuit against Yahoo for a data breach. You may be eligible if you had a Yahoo account between 2012 – 2016. We already have credit monitoring services in place (from another data breach, naturally), so we have applied to receive a cash payout (up to 100.00). You may have received an email, but if not read more here. Props to DH, who is a master at both rebates and responding to class action lawsuits.
I used my time at home this weekend to make cut-out heart cookies to give as Valentine’s gifts. I was able to use some of the butter given to me by the person I am house-sitting for.
Went grocery shopping with DH on Saturday and we used up a Jimmy John’s gift card to bring home a quick lunch. I don’t like to lose track of gift cards, but this one I have had for a while.
We came in under budget last week, and were able to put that money back into our savings, vacation, and home repair budget lines.
I am watching Playing With Fire on Amazon Prime (using my free video credits from selecting delayed delivery on packages). I’m enjoying this documentary about the Financial Independence-Retire Early movement and one family’s attempt to get on the path to FIRE. Have you seen it? Thoughts?
It’s very snowy here tonight, so we will raid the freezer for a simple meal. Tonight I will firm up a meal plan for the week ahead and make a grocery list. This gets my week off to a good start even if we have to make changes along the way.
