Here's the deal

October 27th, 2009 at 11:47 pm

I just updated my sidebar with a few un-fun facts.

I have debt from my move (after becoming debt-free! oh! painful!) I put it on a card that was charging 0% interest, but I think that rate will expire soon. I expect to get whopped with interest on my next bill.

My emergency fund is down from $1000 because I had an expensive car repair. Will pay it back up with my next paycheck.

My son is getting married in June (which I am very happy about, and I just love the girl). I gave my other son $1000 for his wedding gift, so I will do the same for this one. So I have to get that funded.

My car is doing great, but it has more than 100,000 miles on it, so I know I need to start saving for its replacement.

The housing fund -- well, that's in stocks -- it's part of my retirement fund. I am hoping that it will grow and that I can use it in six more years toward a down payment on a modest piece of housing. Meanwhile, I will start a vigorous saving program on the side once I get the debt paid off.

My new employer will start a new retirement fund for me -- in two years. Four years before I retire! Well, it's better than nothing.
