Just Got the Car Title Edition: Prime Time Quick Hits

Something came in the mail yesterday that got Mrs. PT and I pretty excited: the title for our car!  We own that thing free and clear now since we finished paying off the note.  It’s been a while since I’ve seen a title and I was really proud to have it.  Anyway, I thought I’d share that bit of debt reduction excitement for the day.  Got a debt-reduction story?

No blog carnival entries this week.  Here are some quick hits for you:

And some gems from the Money Life Network:

Kacie from Sense to Save asks, “what’s your favorite drug store?”  I’m partial to the ole Eckerds myself.  Gotta love those little drug store carts.  Seriously though, Kacie’s talkin’ deals.  Mrs. PT’s favorite for the deals is CVS.

Emily’s husband has checked a few things off the honey-do list.  See the list and the pics over at Remodeling This Life.  Great job on the tile!
