Weekly update

August 9th, 2015 at 05:41 am

For the last couple of years I had the opportunity to work and extra five hours a week after school supervising homework club at $36 an hour. The first year I decided to work the extra hours because my husband was unemployed and this money really kept us afloat and saving for that entire year. The second year, I figured I'd do it and save the money. This year, I decided that I'm not going to work if the opportunity arises.

Now that we are completely debt-free, I am content with just working my regular hours which is enough to cover our monthly bills and college tuition for DS#2. Hubby's paychecks will cover savings. No need to hog extra hours at work when someone else may really need the hours and make some money.

Lots of money leaving our pockets this month. I need to set up an electronic check to pay for DS#2 college tuition due on 8/12 ($6700) and pay our property taxes online by 8/20 ($2100). Oh well, so is life!

I hope you have a restful Sunday! I leave you with what a Facebook friend posted on his status: "I wish that my money would have sex in my pocket and multiply".

I thought it was pretty funny.
