Looking forward to the weekend

May 28th, 2010 at 03:09 pm

So looking forward to the 3 day weekend. It will be nice to have Monday off Smile Looks like the weekend is filling up with plans already. Hopefully we will have some down time as I have to clean my house...it's driving me nuts! I don't know how it gets so messy so quickly.

Today was payday. I have paid all the bills I have for this pay period. I think I am just waiting for the home phone bill still. I made my normal payment to the credit card I am trying to snowball. $55. I added to that the 25.70 I had left over in my account when I got paid today. So I have paid a $80.70 payment. I figured if I at least pay $150/month I should have it paid off in a year. I am going to try really hard to pay more than $150 so I can get rid of this small one and move on to some of the larger debts.

I still have to deposit the cash I have laying around at home and plan to do that tomorrow. I will then transfer that over to this payment.

I even managed to transfer $14 to my savings account Smile $1 a day...won't get me rich but it's nice to know that I am not spending it!

I also transferred $150 to my saving account which I will be able to draw upon if needed for the next 13 days. I hope I won't need to touch it. After I paid all my bills and added the $14 to savings I still had close to $500 in my checking account. I figured if I left it there I would spend it.

So, I now have about $280 left in my checking account. This will buy us groceries and birthday dinner for an aunt who is turning 80. Just DD and I are going so I don't think it will be too expensive.

I am glad to be going into the weekend knowing where I stand with my money. Knowing I only have $280 to last 13 days will definately make me thing twice about what I spend it on.

Hope everyone has a nice relaxing long weekend!
