The dreaded property taxes and update

May 2nd, 2014 at 03:50 pm

It was pay day on Wednesday and it was about $250 less than what I had anticipated. I suddenly realized that I missed out on the nine extra hours when my MIL passed away. I missed work for nearly a week. Oh well! I paid quarterly property taxes ($2,220) and sewer bill ($60) this pay period. It left us with $300 plus another $400 from last pay period. I usually sweep the extra money left in the checking to savings, but this pay period I need to hoard the money to pay bills. I also have to pay a large credit card bill from our vacation and a summer course tuition for DS#2. He is taking 3 courses this summer and hopefully the Fall semester will be his last at community college. Not too bad for a child who by the end of senior year in high school wanted nothing to do with the word "college". He is still undecided about transferring to a four year college or just getting his associate and applying to the police academy. Either way we will support his decision.

I also managed to scrape $81 to put into the Anniversary Party fund. I really obsess about not being able to put money away in savings. I was happy to be able to at least put a small amount of money away. I have five more biweekly checks left until the end of the school year. I think I will apply for a summer school program to work as an instructional aide. It runs for four weeks and I'll still have the entire month of August to relax. Let's see what happens.

Well this is it for today. Have a great frugal weekend!
