Breathing again

March 9th, 2007 at 05:10 pm

Hello all,

I paid all the bills for the month except my internet. (still waiting for the refund for paying into the wrong account)

I'm trying to use a new budgeting system where I save all my checks then just pay all the bills one time a month. Things look different in my check book now. It seemed like before that I was setting aside money for bills, now it seems like I'm setting money aside for me. Kind of like reverse psychology saving up those payroll checks in my check register. This month I'm going to deposit them into my money market account. It won't be money market earnings because I won't be able to keep $2000 per month in there, but it will still be earning some interest while they sit and wait for bill time.

My oldest daughter spent some time in the hospital this week. She had pneumonia and bronchitis. A very scarey combination. She is better and was released Wednesday night.

Only 45 more months to go until I am stupid debt free (12/2010)!

My little girl is having her birtday party tomorrow. I'm trying to keep it as budget friendly as possible. My family comes over and we will have sandwiches, cake and ice cream. She also invited 7 friends. I know, she had some who couldn't come, then they could come and now she has 7. I just didn't have the heart to tell the kids they couldn't come.

I hope you all have a happy healthy weekend.

    BarbaraL, can you have your paycheck direct deposited into the MMAccount?

    We do this - DD into the MM account, then transferred a few days before billpay time into the checking account.

    That is an excellent idea. I hadn't thought of it myself. They are linked accounts so I litterally just have to push a button to transfer the funds.
