Not Much to Report

March 17th, 2011 at 08:15 am

Well...the last two days have been close to NSD's, but they weren't. I got breakfast both days. I need to go to Food Lion and get some frozen lunches so that I have enough food to make it through the day.

Payday is still a week and a half away, but I am excited for it. Even though I am back to 40 hours, I am going to pretend that it is still 30 and put the additional in my EF and then start paying off credit cards. If I could live on the $725 that I got every two weeks, than I should still be able to live on it. We shall see.

When people on here post how much they make, it makes me realize that I do pretty good for the amount of money I make. I used to feel bad because people were posting about how much they saved or paid toward debt because I couldn't keep up with them. But now I now why. I just don't make that kind of money. I just had this realization when someone(love the life you live?) posted their monthly budget. It is no wonder that I can't keep up with them.

    Don't compare :-) We make very little compared to most here too - but it's far more important to do the best with what you have!

    Posting income does put things in perspective. It is important to make the dollars you have work the best for you! It's not what you spend, it's what you keep.

    My husband makes a good income...now. But when I started this blog in 2006 we were scraping. I remember thinking the same things as you when I saw that so many others had a much larger income. But there were also people who made less. In the end it didn't matter. What mattered was learning to save, even if it was just $10 a week. What mattered was sharing the getting out of debt mindset with other people. I think you are doing very well with what you have and that your idea to bank your extra hours of pay to build up your EF and then move on to debt repayment is a great one.
