Pay Day

April 15th, 2015 at 04:03 pm

The exciting thing about Pay Day is not money to spend, but the opportunity to sweep my savings into the bank. This time I put $1400 in the slush fund. My plan was to transfer $1600, but yesterday my annual subscription to hit the bank account. It was $189. This will be my last year to subscribe. I'll try to get everything done that I can this year and then let it go.

I counted the $189 as entertainment. It has upset the statistics I was bragging about yesterday. Now I've spent 52% of my variables budget. But that's still good. I'll be careful about other things for the rest of the month. It's been quite a month so far, with not only this expense, but a parking ticket and a renewal of my virus protection -- all unexpected -- and a weekend trip, as well. If I come out at the end under budget -- my new restricted, retirement budget -- I will know I've done well.

So today I paid my Discover card and my mortgage. Everything else will be withdrawn automatically.

I did another load of laundry last night ($1.50). It looks like I'll have another one to do tonight. And I should clean the fish tank again. If I keep at these tasks, then the weekend won't be awful!
