FIrst Paycheck from Second Job

November 5th, 2014 at 09:06 am

I get my first paycheck from my second job tomorrow. They have it set up so I can go in the Sunday before and see how much the check is going to be for. This check is $140 more than I thought it was going to be for. I over-estimated the taxes to be with held. So I am transferring $50 to my savings account that has only $4 in it and starting my emergency fund. I also set it up to have $50 deposited each week in that savings account. I am excited about this. I will finally have enough money each month to start this fund and still be able to function.

    Yay for starting that Savings Account! We are in a holding pattern for the next two weeks: the way the October taxes and November mortgage payment hit, every dollar has a job. Now to find ways to stay within the budget categories ... that's where the effort is going.

    Glad to see you're nudging forward. Smile

    That's wonderful, NGG. Watching your savings account balance increase feels great. Smile

    That is great! Remember on the DR plan if your income is under $20K then your baby emergency fund is okay at $500 if it is more than it should be $1000. You are doing great! Keep it up!

    I am happy to see that you are able to start your Emergency Fund. The kind of stress relief it offers you as it builds will be enormous.
