Pay day and "fun summer fund"

May 15th, 2017 at 05:53 pm

It was pay day today and I'm excited to tell you that we've reached the 65% mark of our "lofty savings" goal. I hope to be at 75% by the end of August. I'm a 10 month employee so every September I reset goals for our "fiscal year". I am thinking of not participating in summer savings at work for the next school year. They take 10% of my income every pay period and I receive the money back in two installments in the summer (July 15th and August 15th). It is nice to get paid in the summer but I can do so much more with our money. I still have a little time to think about it.

I am also putting some money aside to have a little fun this summer. I started a "fun summer fund" with the $100 I got from DS#2 for Mother's day. I hope to have at least $500 saved by June 30th.

    My school district gave us the choice (after many years of not having the choice) of one big check in June or getting paid throughout the summer. I decided the one big check since I was used to it after almost 20 years and I liked the idea that I could decide where it went in June.
