Time for an update.

October 11th, 2009 at 07:17 pm

An update on what's going on in my house on the money front.

>>Summer projects are done

Summer fund was completely wiped out but everything was paid cash.

>>I took 2 graduate courses this summer and just finished the third course today. Tuition for all 3 courses will be reimbursed by my employer. I have a total of 3 courses left to finish my MA in Education. I'm on my own with these, since I'm only allotted 9 credits per every school year. These nine credits should cost me $2,900+ cost of staying at a hotel (I have to travel to Pennsylvania to take these courses).

>>The board of Education approved my salary guide movement retroactive to September ($1750 more per year). Reason? BA + 15 credits salary scale.

We are not doing any home repairs until next summer. I'll post tentative repairs sometime after January. In-ground oil tank removal is still pending.

Once we reach $50k mark with our savings we will increase the amount of extra mortgage principal substantially.
So far we've met our goal of sending an extra $200 to the mortgage principal every month.

I've been saving for two tentative trips and doing okay with it (see side bar)We've all agreed that Christmas will be very simple.

There you have it! Have a great and frugal week!
