Trip was under Budget

April 12th, 2010 at 08:44 am

Our trip to Nashville ended up being will under budget. I had budgeted $300 for the trip, including gas, eating and hotel. The trip came in at $250! It required less gas than I thought and we didn't eat out much.

I might have to dip into the savings account for contacts. One fell out of my eye this morning and I have no idea where!

Ex-husband is taking advantage of the tax credits and purchasing a new home. He is going to file an amended return which means I will have a credit of about 5K coming to me(the amount he is in arrears)! That would be awesome! I could completely pay off my credit cards and still build my emergency fund!I probably won't see the credit until at least June, but it is something to look forward to.

    That is a fantastic return!! June's not that far off.

    It will lead to a nice start to the summer, look at it that way! And if you have some insurance that your emergency fund will be in good shape, then you can sleep a little better at night, too. Good luck!
