Budget Week Ending 03.17.13

Posted: March 17, 2013 in Budgets

Some may say the Luck of the Irish follows you on St. Patrick’s day – ok if that’s how you want to see it then that’s fine…personally our luck has been ok since we’ve gotten our refunds, we’ve been really good about not blowing the money on things we really don’t ‘need’ a few wants here and there but nothing huge! I could totally go blow it on new furniture for the house – but if I did that and didn’t pay the mortgage I wouldn’t have a house to put it in – same goes for the car, if I tried to trade it before I paid off the back due balance I wouldn’t have much luck – these are just some hard learned lessons from years ago…currently I’ve learned that if I want to make that money last, it’s best not to spend it all at once, spread out the expenditures and bill payments so that it gets re-padded each week with our paychecks and we have a better chance of still having that money in the longer term…thus the reason you won’t see me paying any big bills this week, while I still have abt $2100 left of our refund, I find it better to not change our bill pay schedule so I have more of our paychecks sitting there when I pay them next week.
