I enjoyed the Halloween tweet-storm so much, I decided to do a Thanksgiving version. I asked people to give me one amount of money they are grateful for in 2016:
For my post tomorrow, tweet at me a specific amount of money you're grateful for in 2016 and why: $276 – 2 tickets to new Harry potter play

I thought about this a lot myself before tweeting it out and have an answer that fits in a variety of categories. For each category, I add my own answer and the Twitter responses I got that fit in that category as well.
My $276 amount to see the second ever showing of Harry Potter and the Cursed Child would fit in this category. It was an amazing, historic experience.
$59,600 – the current mortgage balance. While I’m not super excited that we still have a mortgage balance, getting this below $60,000 felt great! It means we’ve lowered the balance by $30,000 since starting the blog!
$1,007.36 – The cost to drop our kids off with grandparents in a different state and take off on a couples tenth anniversary trip to the UK. I needed this trip and it was well worth the money.
$1,180.75 – The amount we spent last month on tithing and other causes we feel passionately about.
$1,150.88 – The price for new carpet in our entire house. I still can’t tell you how much joy this brings me. I can roll around on the carpet and not be disgusted wondering what’s hiding in it and it feels like I’m walking on clouds!
What’s Your Grateful Number for 2016?
