September 12th, 2007 at 02:27 pm

Today i paid off $50 principal on the computer credit card so it goes from $586.39 to $536.39. I also paid what i owed my mom $35.

I figure every little bit helps and that i'm better then where i was a week ago!.. friday i get my cheque so that can go to more debt !

I started working another job on the weekend at a restaurant .. i worked 5.5 hours on sat. and almost 13 hours on sun.
in tips i made $95.00

I figure the way i am going to split the money is this way:
wages go towards paying debt until it is paid off
tips go to savings
and governement cheques go into my account so that i can use that money to spend. ($200) a month that i get for baby bonus and supplement.

So with the money i had :
cheque from job 1 : 219.97
~ 70.53 computer
~ 20.00 mom .
tips: 95.00
~$40 ef
~$55 mortgage prepayment

and i am waiting till i get my wages from the restaurant to use the rest on my credit card because i want to put my restaurant wages on my card too!

the past few days...

I haven’t written for the past few days so here is an update of what’s been going on.
Our savings account is now at $1400! Yay . Thanks to the $200 I put in there from savings so far this month, I also added a cheque we had received and the rolls of change we had. I went out and spent $65 on a mop/vac for the kitchen floor ( one of the Bissell ones) turns out I have to take it back because it leaks the cleaning solution when it is not in use… I saw a video for it that said you can just leave the solution in it when u put it away making it easier for when you go to use it next time. I felt guilty spending the money but we had no mop so I decided that this one would be great because I usually have to sweep twice just to get all the dog hair and it would be easier to vacuum it up. All well we will just exchange it. We paid $110 + interest off on the computer, so now it sits at an even $600.. and I plan to pay $100 + interest every month, so I can get it paid off before Christmas! Oh ya I forgot the best part, I went grocery shopping with a budget of $150 and only spent $70!.. but then I saved $13.00 on meat. My bf also worked a side job on Sat roofing so I’m not sure what I will do with that money yet……

Today's achievement..

Well today i went to school, I am trying to get my ged. Today was free sub day so i ended up getting a free sub for lunch .. which more than makes up for the $1.25 i spent at the candy machine. Then i offered to help clean up and I ended up getting another one to take home. ( I might just give that one to my bf, if hes nice lol).. i figure on going home and putting $ 200 on the car parts bill .. thats now totally just over $400 until we take some parts back and get a refund. Vehicles cost so much money!!

Money spent on wants : $1.25
Money spent on bills : $200
Money saved : Subs @ $6.00 each = $12

Todays achievement ..

I spent no money today .. and i opened up a new savings account with a 4% interest rate, and no fee associated with it!
well no fees that i will use. I will just use this account to save money and transfer between my other account at the same bank.
