Not So Little Surprises!!

September 11th, 2009 at 06:30 am

Well, I have been working on my budget and all is going well. I needed to come up with something like $180 by the 20th in order for it to work out. BUT WAIT!!!!

DS tells me last night that he is close to not being allowed to charge lunches anymore at school because of his balance. Had to write him a check for $40 to cover balance plus a few more days. And I wrote a check at Ingles last night for dog food and cat food. And we needed Sudafed to fight the seasonal allergies! DH also "borrowed" some money for gas since he started a new job. I don't know that I will get it back this week. So all told, I now need to come up with $300! So I will have to do some major reconstructiong. Might have to borrow some from my mom because the items to paid can't be put off until the next payday...but I can pay her back on that next payday. UGGGGG!!! I can't wait to get to a point where I have a cushion for these surprises. I try to plan for everything, even the unexpected, but some weeks, like this one, I just can't build that "extra" into the budget.

    Good luck!!

    You might start paying for lunches each payday, especially if he eat lunch at school everyday. The amount shouldn't be to hard to figure out. Also...think about how often you buy dog and cat food. I buy in bulk for our cats and buy the food about every three months.

    Darn, I did hold out hope from your headline that they would be good surprises. Frown Well, hang in there. Is your husband's job going to actually pay more than his transportation expenses this time??

    Ceejay...Hope Springs Eternal!

    CCF - My father usually pays for the kids lunches at the beginning of each month...for some reason, my son didn't get a check this month. Probably because he was staying with his dad. Now that I am expecting it, it won't be that bad. Where do you get 3 months worth of cat and dog food?
