Money, money, money…

Do you ever feel like you’re just hemorrhaging money?  I just went to the eye doctor which cost me over $300 even though I have insurance.  I signed up for a $500 continuing education course and an almost $400 hotel (it’s a Thursday-Friday course and CP is joining me on Friday for the weekend because I’ll be in O-town which is not far from where he lives) for that trip.
Plus I joined Ww today so that’s more money I’ve spent.  And I refilled my gas tank. Bought supplies for my sewing class next week.  (Does it ever end?) I feel like I should just open up my money veins and let the money out.  All I can say is its a good thing I live at home and have no rent to pay right now. At least I will get paid on  Thursday.  It always feels good to know that money is hitting the bank.  Now I just need to start a 401k for my retirement.
In other happy money news, I am the proud owner of no more credit card debt.  And I am increasing my car payments to get it paid off sooner.  Then I will only owe on my student loans (I only have 22 more years on that!).  So I can work on saving for a down payment for a house. Yay me!

  1. I know EXACTLY how you feel. All these things start to add up – petrol, bills, blah blah blah, and I’m meant to be saving for a plane ticket and enough money to move out in six short months. Eek!

  2. Even though the purchases and copays and whatever are adding up, at least you’re not accruing interest on that credit card debt anymore! That is really great.

    Have you thought about socking away some fake-o rent money into a high-interest account while you’re at home? It might turn into a nice little nest egg…
