Day One Hundred Forty-Eight

July 19th, 2016 at 06:39 am

Calories: 1406

There was a snag to my budget yesterday. The $40 charge to my I-Pass hit my credit card. This is a charge that refreshes every time my credit on the I-Pass gets low. (I-Pass is a transponder that automatically pays tolls on Illinois tollways.)

This means I've spent 82% of my variables budget. And it also means there is not enough left to pay for the window washing next Monday.

Well, I'm still going to get my windows washed. This is not a matter of not having the cash, I'm just not hitting my low-spending goal. I'll have to decide whether I'll take the cost from the slush fund, or roll it over to next month's budget, since it's so close to payday, when the budget resets.

Since I've already had to pay property taxes and the insurance premium this month, I hate to take any more out of savings, so I might just roll it over.

Needless to say, I'm going to make this as close to a no-spend week as possible.

    Ouch, but IPass is a very necessary evil. Last summer we blew through a couple of tolls before we saw them. Fortunately I had the sense to write down the numbers and then at the next toll booth asked about paying them and they gave me the www addy to pay them online.

    I'm so glad I don't live in a toll road state anymore.
