Money woes...until

June 30th, 2007 at 04:26 pm

Happy Saturday!

I have been scratching my head in wonder as to why I have LESS money now that I am working. Granted, I bought a car...and we've been eating out more while my dad has been in and out of the hospital...But why the heck am I upside down at the end of the month.

I must first confess, that I do not monitor my accounts everyday...but I do check the balances at least weekly (I am trying to balance time and I just havent taken the time to monitor like I did pre-employment.)

So...I took a long look at one of my accounts yesterday and realized that I had accidentally schedule TWO weekly trasfers to the hubs business account instead of just one.

Hmm...he is getting double what he is supposed to get and "suprisingly" (yeah right) hasnt said

So, I am happy to report that I have transferred the excess back into the household fund and we have ample excess again.

Now, there are so many morals to this story I don't know which to start with.

1. Keep better track of the accounts and where the money is going. Luckily, I was able to easily retrieve those over payments.

2. QUIT spending so much money on dining out. Feeding my family dinner for under $5 should continue to be my goal!!

3. Retrain my brain and focus on saving again.

Today, I am making a big ol batch of soup and we are bbqing chicken for dinner. So, for today, I think I am on the right track.

Family Update:
Papa is still well and doing good.

I have GS for the weekend.

I also have DJ---my daughters lil long haired chihuahua (sp?) hes too darn cute.

So, a busy, but fun weekend!

    It's a pretty common problem you report - you make more money, sure, but not that much more. You think, "just this once." And "just this once" comes tomorrow and the day after.

    Good to hear that your father is improving. Stability on that front can only give you peace of mind!

    It is amazing how fast those eating out costs add up. & the little expenses of working you don't notice.

    Glad it was just an error that was easily correctable though.
