Banner Day at basicfinancial

Wednesday, April 16, 2008

It is a banner waving day over here at basic financial.  We have had out first automatic deposit into our ING savings account! w00t!

We are also now the proud owners of a John Deere RX95 riding lawnmower.  You read correctly, now I can sit on my butt while I mow the grass.  It did not come with the cupholder, so I will have to scrounge around the house to see if I can fashion one out of what we have, but I think this should be possible.  I was able to get the mower for $280 off of craigslist, which saved me a ton of dough, as I was originally planning on getting one much larger than I really need for at least $700 more.   But instead we are doing the fiscally responsible thing and starting our savings.  I beleive this calls for another w00t!

So here's to many months of enjoyment out of seeing our bank account grow and the length of our
 grass shrink.
