I'm feeling so much relief, knowing I can count on my August paycheck. And I'm excited that a bigger check in September is so close to becoming reality!

It's still going to be very tight right now. Somehow costs have added up so fast this month. I needed to stock up on groceries, buy some pet supplies, pay some medical bills, get a haircut -- it piled up so quickly. I've spent 92% of my variables, and still have three weeks to go before the August 28 paycheck.
When it comes, I will already have it easier, because it will be such a short pay period. The September check comes on the 18th.

I spent nothing yesterday, and I won't today, but tomorrow I have to pick up a prescription. It is only $10, however.

Tomorrow is my last day of caring for GS2 -- I think. DS is working from home on Friday, but he may send GS2 to my house if he gets too distracting.

Our plan for tomorrow is to walk/ride on the bike path that goes along the lake, if the weather continues as nice as it has. Today he is having lunch and going to the beach with a friend, so I'm getting a little break.

Then I will be free as a bird. I will dedicate myself to stretching the pantry, and living as frugally as possible!

    Glad to hear you're looking forward to a larger income in September, and also to more free time.

    CB, you've been so diligent for so long! As you mentioned a few weeks ago, overall for the year you are under budget. You're doing a great job, you need to celebrate!

    I bet your spending will be much lower without the grandkids and their outings and food needs. Enjoy your freedom!!
