Weekly update

April 7th, 2015 at 05:08 am

I transferred $5,600.00 from our savings to our checking account to pay the granite counter top in full as well and the visa as well as the AMEX credit cards. I hate having such big bills lingering. We are steadily beefing up the emergency fund but needless to say the EF took a hit this month. We still have the kitchen counter top back splash to do. We will fund that with tax our tax refund.

Income taxes are done and we will get a total of $3,300 between the feds and the state. I seriously thought we would have to pay this year but I guess claiming zero dependents, both for me and hubby, is working in our favor. Next year, we will have $15K in college tuition to deduct so that should ease the burden since hubby will claim a whole year of salary in 2015. This year our income was less because he was unemployed for half of the year.

I'm feeling much better now that I got tons of Vitamin D on my Spring break and the weather is warmer. This winter was insane!

    I know you can get a tax credit for college tuition - but I never heard that you could deduct the total tuition?
