payday, and it's less than normal

September 24th, 2010 at 12:57 am

The last four weeks at work I didn't do as much overtime as I had wanted to, getting sent home two hours into my shift didn't help either. I got paid less than I did last month. When i'm back at work after my holiday I'm going to get some overtime. I'm just going to have to work with what I've got, it's the only thing I can do.

This morning I have paid money to MIL ("rent"), paid catalogue and my high-interest CC. Still to pay the lower interest one. I'm trying to decide how much money to put aside for my friend's wedding. I'm getting their present today too (20 budgeted) The place that they're having their reception is really cheap so we shouldn't need too much. their wedding is in three weeks (the week before payday for us)

Tonight I am going out with my mum. She is buying the drinks while we're there since I got the tickets. I think it will be a good night.

Today I have to:

- buy their wedding present
- get petrol
- put money aside for wedding (can't see it, can't spend it)
- pay washing machine
- pay other CC

    What you wrote about "can't see it = can't spend it" is so true! I find that if I put money away for something then it is far less likely to lead to trouble down the road. It's like my own little insurance that I will be able to get what I need when I need it. If I carry it around then it can get confusing or I may rationalize! Good idea.
