Been slacking off

May 23rd, 2011 at 10:54 pm

I admit it: I haven't tracked my finances properly this month. Normally I write down spending on the same day in my notebook but I just haven't. I do know that I will have 50 left over this month but it looks as though I'll have to get a new tyre. I've had to pump my tyre up a few times within the last couple of weeks.

We've been quite busy - party last Saturday and a Wedding the week before that. That'll be me for a while though.

Hubby has spoken to MIL about what he owes her - she disagreed with what he was saying... until he showed her his notebook that he uses to keep track of what he's paid to her. She wanted to keep his notebook. Sorry, no. She copied down the last few payments into her book. By the way, he's at 600 now.

I need to get a filling next month. 45

My mum offered to give me money to put money into savings. I declined and told her to open up her own savings account instead (she doesn't have one)

I got some overtime at work, not as much as last month, but it's still something.

It doesn't look like I'm going to achieve my goals this month. Next month I'll probably just make one goal.

    In a way, if you buy the new tyre without touching savings or using a credit card, you did "start" the car maintenance fund. You just had to use it right away.


    It never hurts to put a small amount into EF to start it. Even 1 (or 5) adds up fast. Just remember how small your Moving Out Fund seemed to be and how fast it grew? And maybe throw 1 into the car fund too after your tyre. One isn't much, but it's better than Zero!
