~Makeover your budget
~Balance your checkbook (come on. you know you need to.)
~Organize your closet, drawers, home office or computer files
~Invite a friend over for a tasty drink
~Visit a nursing home and ask to meet a few residents (they will love this!)

Do you have other ideas to add to the list? Do tell!

Thought For the Day: How much money do you spend each month on entertainment? Remember, fun can be inexpensive or, better yet, free.
