Weekly Update 42

We had another really great week!  We’re being very productive at work and had lots of holiday parties and such to attend.  We also saw another musical and had chicken and waffles with some friends before the show.  And we went to my friend’s holiday handbells concert, which was amazing.

Justin @ The Frugal Path elaborates on why he’s not playing the rewards game, saying”I’m still working on getting out of credit card debt from a recent problem that we had. But once we’re out I’m not adverse to using this system. If you pay everything off at the end of the month credit cards can save you a little extra cash.”
