Nice Little Check

March 9th, 2018 at 07:24 pm

One thing I like about being an admin is that I'm able to view my check five or so days before payday.

Took a look at my check, and it's about $300 more. This include the raise and me changing my total withholdings. Best thing I could have done was read the instructions on the W4 form and completed the document more accurately. Why have a refund that's not earning interest for me, on money I earned, when I can use my money now? When you know better you do better. That's why I'm reading more and more books on personal finances.

Different news, I applied for a job and had a phone interview. The position is paying about $10k more a year and closer to my home. All went very well and I'm pleased. I was told that they'll be a second interview next week.

That's all the news I have planned. Tomorrow after my sorority meeting, I'll be revamping my budget. It feels good to know that CC4 will be gone soon

    I'm so proud of you for changing your withholdings! It definitely makes sense to use the money that is yours now rather than waiting for a large refund check. I recently suggested this to my friend who is working to pay off debt, she wasn't so sure, but we'll see what she does. At least I planted a seed.

    First of all, well done on your current job and figuring out your withholdings to make yourself more money. Second, I'm proud that you are still looking to improve yourself...more money and closer to home, now that would be a blessing, wouldn't it?

    Hi CCF I really hope your friend listens. We are a creature of habit, my second job at 16 I was told by an adult to put zero so I "get a nice return." I've been doing this ever since. But since I started reading more about finances and applying what I've learned, I fell like I'm winning.

    Rob, it would be amazing
