Updated Sidebar and other ramblings

July 17th, 2009 at 10:41 am

I took the time today to update my sidebar. I actually have about $400 in savings!!! WOW!!! Now if I just don't do something stupid again, like buy a car!

I started looking at my budget for the month. It has been a very expensive month. Cheerleading alone has been unbelievable!!! But I look at it and think "if I didn't have this" or "this hadn't been due" I would be in really great shape. What I am learning is that there will always be something. The key is to plan for the somethings!

I only have one main savings account(other than the kids) but I have it broken down in my quicken to different accounts acounts...for household, for auto, etc. That helps me to not know exactly how much is in there and makes me feel better about saving. It works for me! I also have a cheerleading account that I haven't listed yet. I will start putting money in it next month to help cover some of the competition expenses.

But things are really looking up right now. I am just so excited!

    Oh and today was payday. Except for the mortgage payment, everything was already set up in my bill pay. I also filled up my car and repaid the kids savings account the $40 I had to borrow earlier in the week.
