Payday and UFM

January 12th, 2017 at 09:22 am

Somehow, someone at the board office made a mistake and we were paid two days early. I'm glad we did because the last time I received a paycheck was December 23rd.

We were able to put 55% of our net income this pay period in the bank for savings. I am really pushing to save as much as we can hoping to be able to pay cash for a house where ever we decide to move to in a few years.

The UFM challenge is going super! I believe we've had 9 days of no spending whatsoever and yesterday was the first day I spent money on groceries and gas for my SUV. I hope not to have to shop for groceries until February 1st.

Did I mention that I was gifted a treadmill for Christmas? We got on Monday and hubby put it together for me yesterday. I'm going to make a habit of using it on a regular basis. I really want to lose some weight for our Spring break vacation.
Wish me luck!

P.S. I also contributed $350 to the Roth IRA. I'm slowly getting close to funding it in full.
