Week's update

June 19th, 2017 at 11:06 am

It took me exactly a year and two days to save the money we used last June to pay the HELOC. No small feat; it took a lot of motivation and sacrifice to put that money back in our savings account. I get one more regular paycheck this Wednesday (last day of the school year), then payroll summer savings money will kick in for the months of July and August. We are currently at 69.7% mark on our "lofty savings goal". By Wednesday, we will surpass the 70%. I also hope to add an additional 2-4% during the summer months.

I hope that by the time hubby is able to retire with a pension, we can pay off the investment property since it will generate about $1500 of income every month. I (we) will only pay it off if there is enough to pay it off but still have a generous emergency fund. Who knows! I can always dream, right.

I earned $25 in credit card rewards and I also received a $10 Amazon gift card from a student. This family always remembers the special area teachers and I'm grateful. I used some of the credit I have on Amazon to purchase a waffle maker (ours went kaput after 12 years), a school year planner and large muffin tin liners. All free using credit card rewards.

This is it for today. I hope you have a great work week; Thriftorama, I thinking of you and pray for a great outcome. ((HUGS))
