I may have some exciting news soon -or rather I do have news but I don't know how exciting it is yet - about bringing in some extra money next month. Stay tuned!
And now, where my money has gone for the past two weeks. A bit of a mea culpa here is that not buying groceries during this entire budgeting period - working late, snow, etc., has left both my fiance and I spending too much money on lunch at work.
Bad bad! I thought I had learned my lesson to brown bag it. Must try harder.
So here's how I did:
Wedding Savings - 500/500
Credit Card - 125/125
Sallie Mae - 407/407
Defaulted Student Loan - 260/260
Nice Collection Agency - 125/125
Groceries - 75/0
Sprint - 78/0*
Health - 60/40
Misc. - 110/220
*I just paid this today so I will include this amount in the next budgeting period.
So yes my spending wasn't awesome but because of my federal tax refund I was able to give a nice boost to the wedding savings account. Just as a preview, my fiance and I have decided that after the wedding I will continue to save money in this account as general savings for us - to help grow our emergency fund, save for our next car, house, etc.
