My Challenge for October

September is almost over and October is just around the corner.

One of the things I would really like for our house is a fireplace since it doesn't have one. I learned awhile back about electric fireplaces and have had my eye on a few, price comparing.

My goal is to get one for us by Thanksgiving, so I can decorate it for Christmas and hang our stockings from it.

http://images.lowes.com/product/converted/872076/872076018001xl.jpgOnce we have the fireplace we can mount our smaller flat-screen TV above it, get a small DVD player and our family room will be done enough for us (the only other "big" piece of furniture we need for the house is a futon for the office downstairs, but we don't really need that right away).

With the hours I've been working, I could easily get the one at Lowe's we like in about 2 paychecks if I really saved. But that's the problem - me saving!

Aside from getting Jay snow boots, dress shoes, the shirt for Thanksgiving I'm waiting to go on sale at work, and snowpants, he's pretty much set for winter (assuming my mom decides to get him a pair of bib overalls and the fleece sleeper 3pk at Target), so I don't need to spend too much more on him. And after my shopping spree this afternoon, I'm pretty much set for winter too, save for maybe a pair of shoes like I mentioned previously.

So the only things I really need to spend my own money on these next few paychecks are gas for my car and food when I'm at work.

I think it's doable!

Here's to trying - let's see if I have that fireplace before Thanksgiving!

  2. I'm really loving the theme/design of your web site. Do you ever run into any internet browser compatibility issues? A small number of my blog audience have complained about my blog not working correctly in Explorer but looks great in Firefox. Do you have any tips to help fix this issue?

  3. I almost never drop comments, however I looked at a great deal
    of remarks on "My Challenge for October". I actually do have some questions for you if you
    do not mind. Is it simply me or do some of these comments
    come across as if they are coming from brain dead visitors?
    :-P And, if you are posting on additional social sites, I'd like to keep up with anything new you have to post. Could you make a list of all of your shared sites like your Facebook page, twitter feed, or linkedin profile?
