My interview went very well! I am cautiously optimistic. There's been a lot of financial news of late, each may require a full explanation, but first my budget:
Starting Balance = $1219 (it's actually a little more but I am keeping the excess from the last budget)
65 - Utilities (I settled with them and set up a payment plan!)
48 - Cell
175 - Payday Loan (one more payment to go!)
125 - Nice Collection Agency
406 - Student Loan aka Aunt Sallie Mae
225 - Work Trip*** (although if I get the new job I may not attend)
85 - Boyfriend Birthday Gift
Leftover for me to live on = 90 bucks. It's a little tight but I think I can swing it.
I can't wait until I get rid of the Payday Loans so that I will actually have a workable budget and can start contributing to my Roth again! Work trip is up in the air since I have a really good feeling I will be getting this new job and would therefore feel bad about taking a trip during my two-week-notice. Hopefully I will know soon!!
