$91.02 – ($45.17 for October and $45.85 for November) I budget $150 a month for power. Since our weather has been so mild lately, we didn’t use as much power so I am depositing the difference.
$50 – Received 3 different rebate checks.
$4.82 – Spare Change
$87.98 ($43.99 for Nov and $43.99 for Dec) – Cancelled our gym membership through the holidays. There is no way we can find the time to go for the next 3 months. Hubby works retail and there is no time! We decided to cancel it so we can rejoin with a better deal.

$35 – Received (2) Rewards Cards from AT&T for changes made on my accounts

$10 – Bought a $50 Disney gift card at Target and got a $10 gift card with the coupon (no longer available)
$31.54 – Returned items to Walmart that we found when we were packing that we never used. Got the refund on the gift card
$40 – Took care of my friend’s cats for a week. She insisted on putting the money into our fund.
$10 – Publix offered a $50 gas gift card for $40 with a $50 purchase. I took advantage and I am putting the $10 difference in my fund.
$5 – Took advantage of this deal (appears to be dead now) and scored a FREE stocking stuffer. I had been debating on buying it anyways, so I put the $5 I saved into the fund from the gift budget.
