Firstly, thanks once again to Foundapenny for inviting us all to his home and sharing a lovely home cooked meal.
Here are a few notes:
Foundapenny spoke about increasing efficiency in his new (and beautiful) home via replacing the very old-school light bulbs, monitoring appliance draw with a digital meter, and discussed DIY insulation in the master suite. Rob also did his own insulation install in his new home, but with a different type. Rob held down yet again with his wit and good-natured banter.
M is expecting a baby boy in Feb (congrats!) and talked about how the preparation is effecting her purchasing habits, and how she ran the numbers on cloth vs. traditional diapers and is it really worth it?
I didn't have much to contribute myself. I'm realizing that my spend rate back here in the US is quite a bit higher than predicted, but that's not surprising given my fancy-pants lifestyle. OMY, or two, or three, for sure.
We also had a new face present, Goldilocks, and got a bit of insight into her introduction to MMM.
We missed out of a handful of you, but hopefully y'all can make the next one. And of course, if the mysterious and awesome EarlyFi is lurking, maybe she'll come around again : )
A majority of us were good with Saturday at noon for future meet ups, but since we missed at least four of you, I'm going to create another Doodle for the next one. Try to pick the most popular date if possible, for max participation. You can always go back and edit your choices up until the event.
