Pay Day

August 9th, 2019 at 02:09 am

Pay day was today and this is what happened

* Saved over half of September mortgage payment
* Reduced CC10 by only $15
* Added to my retirement savings
* Added funds to the sinking funds
* Set funds aside for auto pay bills (e.g. water, car insurance, cellphone)
* Paid half of the astronomical cable bill that is due on 8/17 πŸ™„, and
* Paid tithes

Most of this check went towards saving, and I’m happy with that. I’m anticipating a reduction in my electric bill with the SO gone but not so much with the water, since I’ve been pressure cleaning.

I noticed I won’t be saving much with SO gone on the cable as I thought. Why? Well when we split the bill it was $85-89 per month, now with just the internet it is $70. So my savings is really, approximately $200 a year πŸ€¦πŸ½β€β™€οΈπŸ™„. I’ve got to look for cheaper, internet service.

Lastly I’m going back to meal prepping

    Good luck on the internet savings. My guess is that lowering the speed or data, whatever they call it might save some, but you may lose quality. Might be worth a try though.

    Amber, I know it doesn’t feel lik it, but if you didn’t shut off the cable, you would still b paying the $200 so β€˜you’ are saving!

    We have options for internet though both our cable and phone service providers. I don’t, but some people switch between them every couple of years to take advantage of β€˜introductory offers’. Maybe check out that?

    You're doing great Amber! You are saving a lot by cutting the cable portion otherwise you'd be paying the full amount each month without SO paying the other half of the cable bill. I run into the same problem with the internet service offered in my area. I wish it was cheaperSmile If it makes you feel better, you are paying less than I do for internet access.

    Keep up the good work on saving.

    Meal planning is the key to not being tempted to eat out as much.
