Time for annual Mustachian accomplishments for 2017!

We did take half a loaf of stale bread and it's currently becoming bread pudding in the oven.

Orange peels from breakfast are on top of the stove (by the oven vent)  in a pot with some water for free aromatherapy.

I am thinking I can probably keep this up for at least a few days!

I drank a "left over" drink that I bought in 2016 too! 

Great thread! :)

Hahaha! Though I may have an automatic payment that is taken out on the 1st.

The orange peelps in water on the stove is a good idea. The smell of citrus always feels bright and cheery to me.

Here's to enjoying what we have!

Happy New Year.

Haha. I was thinking the same thing. Rent is due on the 1st, so I'm already in a $460 hole.

So far for the year my income is $0, and my expenses have been $460. My net worth has dropped by $460 this year so far!

Well, my CSR is due today, but autopay hasn't pulled it yet. On the flip side, the $50 ACH to me is still pending as well.

CSR payment is about 20x as big as the ACH. On the flip side, it also met minimum spend, so should be exceeded by the UR points that Chase will add to my account at the same time.

I suppose there is a question: when I use a credit card, the spending at the time of the card use, or when the card is paid? I'm more of a mind it's when the charge goes on the card.

Anyway - it's well after lunchtime, and either way I haven't spent anything!

Sadly, we let the heat run overnight, so we obviously spent some money there!

I've already wrecked my budget for 2017 😜.  Last night I ordered an emergency bevy bag and life straw from Amazon for my upcoming motorcycle trip through Patagonia.  Total:  $69.00.  However, the potential savings on medical care prevented by these items are huge.

Having made the trip myself, I'll bet you $69.00 that you don't use those items. ;)
