Payed Ourselves First

February 29th, 2016 at 04:23 pm

Today was payday and the first thing I did was paid ourselves $1500 which went directly into our savings. Making a lot of progress ever since I've been doing that. I left enough money to get us by (after paying bills) until the next pay period. I don't like the feeling of being low on cash reserves. I also went grocery shopping after work.

We saw a really good movie yesterday called RACE. It is based on the life of Jesse Owens. I enjoyed it very much. It was also a wonderful day in terms of weather in my neck of the woods. We went for a long walk with the dog, ate lunch at our favorite pizzeria and then we went to the movie theater. Today, I felt much more energetic. We are looking to do something fun every weekend to break the monotony of daily routines. We are going to explore geocaching and hiking as soon as spring comes.

Well this is it. I hope you have a nice and frugal workweek.
