Payday update

November 1st, 2019 at 02:02 am

Yesterday was payday. Yay for a nice overtime check from husbands extra hours of work.

$2443.00

$700 of $2100 of the quarterly taxes came from our budget; DS#1 helped with $1,400.

$350- Roth IRA ($150 bi-weekly contribution and $200 to the projected short-fall)!

$921.00- credit card payment

$72.00- groceries

200.00- savings

20.00- charity

smallish amount was left in the checking for small bills as they coming.

I'm going away for a few days next week and I have put aside the money I made with my little side hustle to cover food for those days.

Prioritizing our long term needs

October 5th, 2019 at 05:35 pm

I currently have $3.450.00 remaining to fully fund my Roth IRA by April. I currently contribute $300 to it every month and I'll have to make some extra contributions because there will be a deficit.

I use DR Every Dollar budget tool (the free one)to keep me in control as I am responsible for keeping track of our finances. My husband is a simple guy and he'd rather that I take care of our financials. I am happy to oblige.
