Hi everyone!

I have saved $346 so far and my kids have saved $5.50 (they are saving 10 cent per week instead of $1/week).

I have to admit, I have a love/hate relationship with Spring Forward - I hate getting up when it's dark outside and it's a battle with the kids when it's bedtime and it's still light outside.  But I do love having the extra daylight at the end of the day and it does feel like (for awhile anyway) that the work day is 'shorter' even though I know it's not.  LOL

 I am keeping on track :) The time change has not affected me yet....we traveled all weekend so I was already sooo tired. Tomorrow might be a different story...getting up for work.

I'm on track and getting close to halfway to the $1378 =)

As for the time change, it will feel like the time to get up comes too quickly as soon as I hit the pillow, but that is always whether it be time change or not. LOL!

I guess I'm ahead...I thought we were in week 11....need to sit down and take a look...lol.  Had to take DD in to have 2 teeth removed - fortunately we had our state tax refund or else we wouldn't have been able to have this done yet (her baby teeth couldn't come in).....now saving for when DS needs to get his wisdom teeth taken out {sigh} which will be sooner rather than later because one is aimed to come out the front of his jaw instead of the top and another is pushing on the molar next to it.....

Yes, travel will definitely do that to you!  Glad you are still on track for the challenge! =0)

That's AWESOME!  And I totally agree with you on the time change thing....seems like I blink and it's time to get up.
