It's our first wedding anniversary next month. We were talking about staying in a hotel for a few nights. If we do it will have to go on the credit card and I know that's a bad idea. I don't mind if it gets paid off quickly but I do mind it staying on the card for ages. We still have a voucher to use at a restaturant. I'll need to talk to DH tonight to decide what to do. We really only want to go to the hotel to get some time to ourselves.

I've been ordering from the Avon catalogue these past few months. I haven't ordered that much. The last order I put in was 23, my biggest one yet. Ironically the woman who does the Avon said she didn't get my order. I have the money put aside just in case she finds it. I haven't ordered anything from the new brochure.

Lunch challenge going well. Bought more crisps and cereal bars to take to work.

It's my friend's birthday tomorrow. I took out the money today that I'll need.

Need to buy a present for my other friend who is having a baby soon.

I'm also meeting my other friend for lunch in Edinburgh. Phew. Sounds like a lot of spending to me.

    If you can plan a nice quiet evening at your home for your anniversary I say go for it, just make sure what ever you decide you're happy with. Happy early anniversary Stick Out Tonguearty-smiley-047:

    I was going to suggest the same thing, although it doesn't have to be dinner at home, necessarily.

    Why not plan an old-fashioned picnic in your own backyard, or even on the living room floor? Get a nice bottle of wine, spread a tablespread on the floor, put your favorite music on, light the candles and great creative! Or go to a local park and do the same thing, followed by a stop at your favorite ice cream place.

    I'd hate to see you charge several hundred dollars if you're not sure you can pay off the balance in full. You don't want that charge lingering and building up interest payments.

    I know it's probably a smart thing to do, to make it a stay at home affair, but you also have to consider the mental/emotional/other people in house issues.

    My husband and I find that even just one night out at a hotel around anniversary time helps a LOT in helping us survive the next couple of months living with parents. Which saves us money in the long run. :-)

    The one thing I suggest, though, is that maybe you don't have to do it ON the anniversary. Perhaps save up for it and do it a couple of weeks after. The date isn't as important as the actual getaway for the two of you.

    Thanks for all the ideas guys. If we had our own place it would be fine to stay at home, however the chances of us actually having the place to ourselves is pretty slim.

    TarWalker, that's true, it doesn't have to be on our anniversary that we go away. I'll talk to DH about it.
