Minor Update

November 19th, 2014 at 07:11 am

Tomorrow I get paid from my second job. Of course I already have it figured out where every dollar is going. I have $50 of going to emergency fund. I am excited to see this account growing. Then I am making a a few credit card payments(minimums on these as I pay additional on one until it is paid) and a car payment.Plus we are going to the grocery store. Sounds like alot but I also got a child support payment today.

I have my budget set through January and I will have 4 credit cards paid off by the end of January. I am excited and can't wait but I also don't want time to go too fast as this is my daughters senior year and she will probably be moving out at the end of the school year. Frown

Disappointed with Mint

November 10th, 2014 at 06:49 am

I decided to give Mint.com a try to work up a budget, since I am not really able to come up with the reports I want in Quicken. I have to say I was mildly disappointed. You can only enter credit cards that they have available. There is no option to manually enter them. So using this would not give me the big picture budget that I am looking for. Dave Ramsey's sight has one, but it is 9.99 a month. I just can't see paying that. Any one have any other sites they use?

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.
