The final Harry Potter movie will be released July 15, 2011, so that’s a great time to host the party. I figure that, if I wait any longer, most of my friends will lose interest in the series.

How I did it: It's just about setting priorities. Camping is inexpensive and doesn't have to take a lot of planning. My two 2008 camping trips were less than a 2-hour drive away (not bad, considering I live in Houston, the Flattest Place on Earth), and were fantastic! Read how I did it…
How I did it: First, I set a money-saving goal. I knew that owning a dog would be expensive, so I set a budget and determined that I would not adopt a dog until I had saved enough to care for the first entire year of her life at once. During those months, I began performing research on breeds, food, supplies, and lifestyle changes that would all become part of my life after I adopted.
