So, here's my Budget for the next two weeks:
Starting Balance = 1137
Aunt Sallie Mae - 406
Sprint - 48 (thank God it's so much lower now)
Capital One - 20
Air Fare - 520
Groceries - 40
Entertainment, Misc. - 100
NB: 3% of my salary is going to my now-threatened pension; 7% goes to my 457 retirement plan.
Hello paycheck. Bye bye paycheck. My paycheck is leaving on a jet plane. And I know it won't be back again for two more weeks. That $520 I quoted is based on the projections if I were to buy the ticket right now. I plan on buying it tomorrow so here's hoping the price goes down a little. And I know I said I would be putting $50 in my Emergency Fund this pay period but I don't think I can swing it. Out of Town Friend is here until Friday and wants to eat at a fancy restaurant tonight. We drank all the beer I had bought yesterday so now I need to get more. More friends are coming to stay this weekend. I love my friends but this is an expensive week because of them. Sigh.
