It's hard to capture a good picture of my spending with Quicken, since it doesn't quite reflect when purchases are made with savings. Case in point, this would be my month in review:
The Shopping section is rather high, yes, because it includes $350 planned purchases (including my phone and camera). I'm loving the new phone! It is a bit larger than my old one, as to be expected, but it actually works. Who knew phones could actually work?! The data plan is finally getting some decent usage.
The debt repayment has gone slow for at least another 2 months when I complete my car fund, and then it will be full power on that. The $2k took priority since the car has developed some new mystery noises we can't pinpoint. And in case it does go kaput, then I'll have a down payment...a very small one, or be able to pay for repairs. One of the two.
My plan was to move on Sunday/Monday, but I worked a ridiculous amount of hours this weekend at my PT job (they even convinced me of working on a Sunday! I haven't done that in YEARS!). Good on the money front, but I am more sore than I'd like, considering all the moving of boxes. So the moving is happening this week, either tomorrow Tuesday or on Wednesday. I'll have no internet either, at least not until it is set up. Woo hoo!... wait, wrong expression. Here's 90% of my belongings not including everyday toiletries and kitchen stuff. Isn't that cute? I'm so move ready!
The new place is quite lacking on the kitchen department. It's very surprising to me how many people do not cook... at all. I was thinking about hitting yard sales if I can work around my PT job's schedule, as most of the yard sales happen during the weekend, when I am working. I need to pick up at least some bakeware and a filtrated pitcher. Went to target to check out prices, and I really would rather not spend up in the $100's in bakeware and bathroom stuff. We have a (very) small 2nd hand store about half hour away which I'll try to check too.
That's my plan anyway. My head has been spinning nonstop since last week, but things are bound to quiet down, and I'm looking forward to a very quiet, very cheap June!
