This one is easy for me- I spend most of my money on vet bills. I have 4 dogs and 4 cats, and most of them have had medical problems. I am just now paying off a vet bill from when one of my cats was really sick years ago.

I'm currently trying to get all my credit cards paid off. Then I'll just have one that I will only use for emergencies. Or try anyway.

I have stopped buying new clothes, shoes, and jewlrey, but boy has it been hard. I can't even turn on QVC or HSN. :-)

A lot of money goes into home maintenance, too, which never seems to quit. I now need a new roof in addition to new carpet, new paint, new wallpaper, etc. There's also some type of small rodents in my attic that are making quite a bit of noise at night and having lots of fun tearing up my insulation. Sometimes it seems it would be easier to just raze the house and start from square one again.

Best to all,

Kelly, do I EVER know what you are talking about when you say home maintenance! It's pretty sad when you walk into Lowe's or Home Depot and every guy that works in there knows your name. I want a concrete yard, and a patio home. Better yet, a cave.

Kelly if you go to which is listed on the bottom of all my posts you'll find a couple of great places that carry Health Insurance for pets. I have it and it has saved me a bundle. [Big Grin]

Ladies I decided to revise this post to see how these things are working for you? Did you hold your ground during the holidays or go overboard? Has anyone paid themselves first since first posted? Just curious. [Confused]
