$ Update

Both of us got paid today. I had everything written down as to how the money was going to be disbursed. Fortunately, my husband earned a nice paycheck with all the extra hours he worked. I immediately set up an electronic contribution to my Roth IRA. We were also able to add a decent amount to our savings account. I feel so grateful and blessed that we are able to save money even when we are living with a limited income. Prior to this season of our lives, saving money was automatic and effortless. Our new reality has taught me to be less judgmental and thankful. Next pay period I am hoping to be able to contribute an extra $100 to the anticipated shortage on my Roth IRA.

By the way, we might have to replace our washer sooner than later. It's making an awful sound and it's leaking water from the bottom. We are not fixing it as it is old. We are, however, trying to buy a second hand washer or we'll wait until Black Friday to buy a new one.

    This seems to be the week for appliance problems for the savindavice community. Black Friday is a good time to buy one, because there will be a lot of sales. I don't like going to brick and mortar stores on Black Friday, though. I make my purchases online so I am don't wind up fighting the crowds.

    Sorry about the washer.

    Yes, saving is being mindful. It's not always easy, but it sounds like you are being careful and watching your pennies.
