Savings and DS#2

December 1st, 2010 at 05:51 pm

Payday was yesterday and I made the usual transfers: $550 summer fund (every two weeks deposit), $500 for DS#1 college tuition(monthly), $100 Christmas 2011(monthly deposit), $250 summer fund (monthly deposit) and $740 for savings (biweekly deposit). I know it's very aggresive, but doable for now.


My MIL is in the hospital with a pneumonia, but she's getting better. They might release her tomorrow. My husband has been by her side every day. He really loves his Mom!


DS#2 made $55 blowing leaves off the roof of two neigbors' houses two weeks ago and gave me $25(which I matched) to put in his savings account. Last Sunday he helped his Dad with an Autumn yard clean up and he earned $75 from that and he gave me $50 to put away in savings also. He says he wants to buy a house someday with a nice down payment. I guess all the talk I do about saving is paying off. I'm really proud of him!


I posted a few days ago that we were (are) trying like heck not to use the credit cards. Well, two credit card bills came with $0 balance. I was doing the happy dance! /

    That is some great news about your kid, and I hope it leads to him owning a place while he is still quite young! Learning these things early really does offer insurance for a better future - I wish I had done so.

    I hope so too Jerry!
