It is pay day! Thank goodness. I have been waiting until now to pay off our vacation and get my credit card back to $0 . That is a great feeling, if you have ever done it yourself you will understand haha.
We put about 98% of our vacation on my credit card, on purpose. It was my plan to pay it off when I got back. I get cash back, on certain things, and was able to build that up a little bit. I’m glad I was able to keep the cost down on our vacation. I think everything all said and done, including driving and extra hotel stays, as well as everything we did, only cost around $2,100. 😀 I’ll take that as a win. It was a 1500 mile drive with a stop on the way and the way back. It involved a 6 night hotel stay that we didn’t have initially planned. We ate out every night and went shopping. We also paid for things like museums and zoo fees. I’m proud of that! 😀 Maybe that will help people thinking that they can’t get away for a decent price.
Every pay day I get a nice feeling of rejuvenation. I get my bills paid off and what not sure, but more importantly I save. I know that each time I get paid I have some money go to my 401k, and into Everett’s 529 college savings account. I love knowing that I am preparing for the future while working on being able to live in the present. Some of those savings are a bit depleted as of late because of our trip but by next year they will be ready to go again! 😉
Another thing I recently did was signed up for a credit union savings account. Trust me, I don’t need another savings account to monitor and deal with, but this is the next step in the process to get my ass a car of my own. credit unions have the lowest interest rate of most places out there for things like auto loans. When the time comes, I’ll now be established there and be able to pull out some money with a low rate, like under 2% low.
As for today, it has been super slow and boring. I am at a stand still with the UPS project. I am waiting on other people to move so I can continue to work. That is my whole project for this month so I want to get it done. 😀
That is all for me today. I hope to see you back again tomorrow! 😀 😀
