Waiting for Pay Day

January 19th, 2017 at 03:14 pm

My day at home yesterday was pretty quiet. And, other than a $1.50 load of laundry, it was a no-spend day.

I didn't even use any gas. When I went to get my blood work done, I took the train. I didn't want to deal with parking. Of course, there is a cost in using the train, also, but it is not out of pocket, since I prepay by making deposits on my Venta card. And as a senior, I only pay half of what others pay.

Today I spent .71 on coffee at work. I had an assignment that went fairly smoothly, and I was able to leave early. I went to the gym afterwards and it was still light when I came home. I love that!

I have enough gas to get to work and back tomorrow. A fill-up this weekend will insure that I will get there and back next Monday and Tuesday. Then on Wednesday I will get paid. If I can hold off on spending till then, my variables will be 88%, which is great, considering that I spent $461 on vacation expenses.

    Sounds like a good day!

    Just re-reading this -- my variables are 88% NOW -- after the gas purchase it will be somewhere in the 90's -- my goal is to stay under 100%.

    Discounted transportation really helps!
