So far

June 24th, 2010 at 04:34 pm

Since I'm in charged of our finances, I've allotted $10K to get us by this summer. Both my husband and I are employed from September thru June. My goal is to spend 8K or less. We do have some big bills this summer such as tuition and a hefty insurance policy that cannot be paid in monthly increments. I've already charged my tuition for my last graduate course and paying the bill will not have to come out from our summer fund since our July mortgage will be paid from our last payroll checks. This bill will be paid from the proceeds of our rental house. It's been less than a week and we've already spent:

replacement of a shut-off valve for the pool- $110.00
graduation gift to our neighbors' son-$50

Total= $197.00


I went to our town library today to work on my paper (to take advantage of the air conditioner and avoid distractions) and ended up borrowing three movies. They are usually due in two days, but since the library is closed on Friday for the summer I get to keep them until Monday. They have a bunch of movies I'll like to watch. Today I borrowed: The Soloist, Julie and Julia and Mamma Mia.


I'm almost done with my Teacher Action Research Paper. All I have to do is the Table of Content, proof read Chapters 4 and 5 and make sure the chapters have the information necessary. Chapters 1-3 have been approved and corrections have been made. I'll be jumping for joy when it's completely done; it's been 6 long months. Hopefully, I'll have my degree conferred by August.

We returned a few things to Costco and received a store credit of ~$125.00.

    All three of those are pretty good movies. Enjoy!

    That stinks about the insurance policy not being paid in increments... I would think that they would work with the customers on that! Here's hoping that your plans lead to a successfully budgeted summer.
