010: PAY DAY.

February 16th, 2010 at 04:18 am

Hello! I hope you all are well.

I am very tired, will catch up tomorrow.

I also found a kindred spirit at work. Her situation is not as bad, but it's nice to know that I'm not the only one who worries about money.

I just wanted to say that I MADE IT. I was down to 2.92 today before I got my check. Yippee. I'm very pleased. I'm going to try to stretch eighty bucks until next pay day (Friday, February 26, which will be low). Maybe that's going a little too far. I won't be using debit to pay for ANYTHING, though. Only in emergencies. I have learned my lesson about nasty bank fees (maybe one day, I'll have a minimum of a thousand bucks in my checking account, and the fee will be waived).

Ugh, I'm too tired to do this, but then I'll forget, won't I? Yeaaaaaaah.

Timmy Hos: 3.02
Phone bill: 138
VISA: 185
Groceries: 40.12

Total monthly spending so far: 1029.11

Dining in challenge: 5

P.S. I'm watching the pairs' free-skate coverage on CTV's site (Russians planning to do a quad?! I don't know if I can bear to watch!), as I don't have a TV. Haven't had one in years. As corny as it sounds, I smiled when I saw the VISA commercial with Morgan Freeman's silky voice congratulating us on our first gold. Also, congrats to the US for being in the lead thus far!

    Yay! You made it! You can stretch that $80, too!

    You arrived at the 15th, by the skin of your teeth! Hurray! I like your $80 'til next payday goal. Could you do it if we arrange for Morgan Freeman to congratulate you? Wouldn't that be cool? Oh what the heck, we'll congratulate you. I'm already imagining you on the most exalted winners' platform, with a bouquet in arms, tears on cheeks, and waving to the crowd. Big Grin

    You made it! Congratulations.
    Now remember, feel that frugal burn. Make that $80 last.

    I love figure skating myself - its like the Oscars and Nascar wrapped up in one delicious package.

    Congrats on making it to payday! I think it is a shame that your bank charges you when you are under $1000, is there any other financial institution that you could change to? That would lead to some excellent savings. I don't know if you have any family members who are/were in the military, but USAA charges no fees. We use them for both banking and insurance. Shop around and maybe you can get a better situation! Good luck,
    Jerry
