Saturday Ramblings

March 31st, 2018 at 08:42 pm

I don't know, I'm super happy for a friend of mine who got promoted and is now making six figures. But I just can't help but think of all the money she waste since she's gotten this promotion. New car, $60k+ two homes with mortgages and looking to buy another. And now she's planning trips for the entire family, extended included.
I love her to pieces, like a sister, but I'd rather see her pay down her debt. You never know what might happen. Oh well 😔

As far as for me, well today was pretty productive. I'm still not watching tv 📺 so I was able to get things done. Cleaned my bathroom 🛀 , balanced my checking account, got an oil change and cleaned the rest of the house. Feeling accomplished.

I tried mobile depositing a check to my sinking fund, but I guess I've reached my limit for March, so I'll wait until tomorrow. I never knew there was a limit.

I also set up a Christmas 🎄 account with Capitol One 360 today. I tried keeping everything in the sinking fund that I use for car maintenance and insurance but I keep having to put money towards the car 🚗🙄🤦🏾‍♀️.

The vacation club, though I've struggled with what to do with this money, I'm going to keep it just for what I started it for, a vacation. I've been socking $20 a pay period and I'm now at $140. The plan is to treat myself to a very nice vacation once this debt is paid off. Though I'm anticipating 2-3 years, I figured I'd have a nice chunk of change and maybe I can go to Monaco 🇲🇨 after all, lol. Monaco is so expensive, I don't know if $40 a month will cut it.

    Good job on the Christmas club and the vacation account. We have both and it is nice to be able to pay cash for our Christmas presents as well as planning for a vacation.

    I decided to forego a big vacation this summer. I knew I would have some expenses this year and I probably wouldn't have really been able to enjoy it guilt free. Maybe a few inexpensive long weekend excursions!
