Week 4 : Happy Summer!

Happy Summer everyone! I hope you had a blast starting it off this past weekend.

We were able to spend last weekend with good friends and family. I started learning more and more about my retirement by calling Fidelity - my current 401k is there. I'll post more about that later on....

Current Debts:
Its payday! Below are the amounts I paid this pay period. The personal loan doesn't get taken out until the end of the month - but I am still calculating it this week.

Starting Debt $23,144 || Paid $566 || Ending Debt* $22,578

Weekly Spending:
I spent so much under the Transportation category alone. The gas usually will last me a while, but I already know I have a lot of driving to do this upcoming week. I would just take a certain amount to spend on gas, but I just hate having to go to the gas station often.
Sat - $5 Target | $11 Drinks
Sun - $18 Car wash
Mon - $24 Transportation | $3.50 Coffee
Tue - $60 gas
Wed - No Spend Day!
Thurs - No Spend Day! *
Fri - $7 Dessert
Weekly Spending Start $150 || End $128.50 || Roll over $21.50

*Bought some stuff for the trip, but I am not including this on the weekly budget since I will be deducting it on the category below.

Pending Expenses:
I am starting to by things for the trip now. I am not sure if I should take it out from this budget or add it into the weekly spending. We finally decided which resort we are staying in... however, I still do not feel like I am prepared for this trip.
  • July 2014 - $1000 Vacation/Destination Wedding
  • December 2014 - $300 Christmas Gifts 

What are your big plans this summer?


  1. You did a great job on your debt repayment! Good work on the no spend days, keep up the good work! :)

  2. Thanks Morgaine - all the PF blogs, including yours, are very motivational =)
