Spent a lot

February 18th, 2009 at 07:06 pm

Well I spent a lot today. I decided to spend only $120 from now until payday on the 2nd so about $60 a week, wish me luck

Added the following:
$25 IRA
$187 EF
$10 Gift account
$20 personal saving account
Total saved $242

Internet $60.07
Gifts(flowers for friend who passed away)$75.00
Misc.(Storage fee,delivery fee for flowers and mom's cell phone) $98.42
Taxes $233.01
Utilities(Cable/Water) $112.36
Extra $10 on CC
Total $588.86

I almost forgot my sister asked me to borrow $20 because she didn't have money for the train and I said no. I felt bad but she never pays me back when she say she will, I'm just happy I said no

    Here's one I like to use:

    "How does failure to plan ahead on your part constitute a need to forgo my own financial goals on my part?" Sorry, not happening Sis! Once maybe, but if she's a habitual borrower with a losy payback record, then an emphatic NO and an offer to help her with her budgeting skills would be forthcoming!

    Great job on working on those saving goals!!
