Not a great month compared to previous months.
In addition to the coupons, I used a $10 Kohls gift card that was from a grocery store promotion. I also used $20 in Kmart gift cards that were from a spend $50 get $20 promotion.

I received two coupons for free pet food which I'll use this month.

Job Offer!

June 4th, 2007 at 10:24 am

On the six month anniversary of leaving my old job, I received a job offer. Recall, I was part of a corporate merger which moved my job to another state.

I have to call back today or tomorrow to formally accept the offer. I like the company and had hoped that I would find something there. The salary difference is almost negligible so Iím definitely happy about that.

I celebrated over the weekend by buying annuals for my containers. Without a job, it was one of the things that I was going to give up this year. I have a few other little splurges that Iím going to indulge myself with now that Iíll have a paycheck again.

I canít contribute to my new 401k for the first six months. That means I wonít be able to start until January 2008. In the meantime, Iím going to have to figure out what I can do to get a tax break on my income for the rest of 2007.

Yeah! I have a job again!
