Right around this time two years ago I was losing my job. And remember that time I wrote about my "rich" parents' Thanksgiving traditions and everyone yelled at me? (Good times)
In the midst of all this, I got engaged, moved six months later, and married my excellent husband. We also saved a bunch of money for said wedding and honeymoon.
I paid off an old collections account that had haunted me for years....and I paid off one of my student loans!
Just two weeks ago my sister had a baby, the grandchild for my parents, and I became a proud aunt.
I have a lot to be thankful for, including this paycheck I will now spend:
Starting Balance - $1271
Roth I.R.A. - 500
Perkins Loan - 200
Credit Card - 200
Groceries - 75
Health - 45*
Gift - 100**
Misc. - 151
*This may be higher. I really won't know for a few more days but luckily there's my good old friend the miscellaneous category.
**We have a gift account with enough to buy presents for family but this money is allocated to buy my sweet hubby a present.
Hope everyone has a wonderful and safe holiday!
