52 Weeks of Gratitude: Week 1

~ We shaved $83.07 off the utility bill in a month's time! I'm hoping to shave more off this month with a more concentrated effort.

~ I am thankful to be off work today with my husband. Much of the time I work weekends and I miss the time I spend with him.

~ I am thankful that my wants and needs are few because that means I'm spending less money.

~ I am thankful for my budding savings because I am widening the gap between myself and catastrophe.

~ It makes me happy to see how excited my dogs get when I wake up in the morning or come home from work.

What were you thankful for this week?

I am thankful for a new year! I've got goals and things I hope to accomplish and I just love starting over (even if only in my mind).

I'm forever grateful for being at home, caring for my family (and homeschooling).

Blessings to you!

Great post!

*I'm thankful for a warm bed and cozy house - the temperature outside, even with the sun shining is a chilly -38 degrees Celcius. Skin freezes within seconds, so we're staying in today!

*I'm thankful for a fridge and pantry full of food so we don't have to go out.

*I'm thankful for the news that tomorrow, it will be a balmy -6!

*I'm thankful I have a few days left on my holidays, time to write, tidy up Christmas and do some baking.

Short list but one full of gratitude on this winter day.
