Cleaning House and Garden

June 4th, 2009 at 01:31 am

Today is the second day in a row that I didn't spend a penny! That's not easy for a shopaholic like me.

I started decluttering and made a pile of books and hockey paraphernalia to sell on eBay and Craig's List. Actually listing them to sell will be tomorrow's project.

I did a lot of work in the garden today - trying to tame some overgrown forsythias in the back yard. I have a few dozen forsythia cuttings in water right now. I'm hoping they'll take root and I can plant them along the driveway and make a nice hedge.

I've also spent a lot of time today gathering statements from our 401(k) and IRA accounts. We have a meeting with a financial advisor on Friday and I want to have everything ready. I'm very nervous about this meeting. I just don't know what to expect; but I really do want to now our future financial outlook. It could be interesting.

    Good luck with the advisor. If you aren't paying a fee for the advise, the advisor will most likely sell you insurance or loaded mutual funds. That's where they make their money. I'd suggest not making any decisions at that meeting.

    Congrats on the no spending, too!

    I agree with creditcardfree. Don't buy anything with a load.
