Today: A Bright Spot in My Recent Funk

May 1st, 2008 at 12:31 pm

May marks a 3 paycheck month for us- with the first one coming in today. As usual, with a little forethought and planning, we're able to put the first paycheck of the month directly into savings and work with a 4 week break between usable paychecks. Though it's proving to be a tight month financially already (my budget month is mid-month to mid-month), I went ahead and put it all in savings, hoping none will have to be pulled out again later.

We're expecting our stimulus payment tomorrow, which will also go directly into savings- assuming it even shows up!

Got a $50+ rebate from our pay-in-full cash-back credit card.

And the water bill came in today- $40 under budget.

It's nice to have a day when you have some hope that you'll be able to do a little more than just stay afloat!
