Well my friend left today...it feels weird not having her here since she has been here for 3 months...but we are all exhausted as we had to be at the airport at 4.30am and it was cold (winter here) and we couldn't sleep when we got home...so I cleaned the entire house..
Now I need to get stuck into the budget and get us back on track, I have menu planned so we will only get what we need each week, we took our cans in (we get 10c per can/bottle) and made $48.30 so I took that and all my coins from home and put into our savings account ($109.70)...so extra money for not doing much.
now just need to figure out the best ways to save as much as we can in the shortest amount of time...
I do have a question...I want to get my ice acct to $2000 which shouldn't take to long (after we pay off the bed) then raise it to $10000 eventually...would people pay off their credit card first or just add to the ice acct and pay on the CC at the same time??
My hubby has severe reflus so sleeps in a recliner...we have tried everything but docs cant find anything that works...so I decided the other day that we would get him a bed...everyone deserves to sleep in one and we got a good one which cost $4200...we need to pay it off but the expense is worth it..
throws our budget out completely so this monday when our house guest leaves I will be sitting down and redoing the budget AGAIN and try to get us back on track.
I paid extra on the phone this month by mistake so next month wont need to pay as much...everything else is paid and up to date...paid for 4 of us to go to the movies today...our last hooray before our friend leaves..
Ok well not much but some is better than none right?
We only have 6 days before my friend leaves can't believe it is that soon...I have my menu plan done...need to rejig the budget when the friend leaves...have resent in our taxes (hopefully they get these ones)
It is pay week and we have money in the bank in our accounts...still have to move some around between our accounts...but will wait till everything is back to normal...and then can update where our accounts are at...but so good to have some money back in the bank.
also thinking if we have enough money in our car and savings accounts that we will buy a car at the end of this year instaed of december 2020...but won't know that till closer to end of year.
