So excited about money this month!

September 5th, 2010 at 10:35 pm

And why am I so excited about money? Because not only is my car paid off, but this month is one of those awesome 3 paycheck months. I figured this out just a couple days ago by the way. How did I miss stuff like this before? I've been paid the same way for YEARS! I'm really trying to figure out what I should do with the funds. I got one paycheck on the 1st, then I will get one on the 15th, then again on the 29th.

So I'm trying to figure out where the money should be allotted to. Apparently this is also a conundrum to others on the internet as well when I googled it (Yes, I AM a giant nerd girl). I would LOVE to save about $1000 (each paycheck is around 600 to 650). Not to mention I will get holiday pay for tomorrow!! Also I asked my boss if insurance deductions will come out of that third paycheck and she said "No, that would be illegal," lol. So that's an extra $50 maybe a little more.

It just feels so good to save so much more money now that a huge debt is gone. And I get that much closer to moving out as well, once I find the right apartment and the right roommate(s). I think that I will try to especially allot the next paycheck towards paying off a couple of smalls debts (dentist, medical) plus the student loan bills. After that I should be able to allocate the rest towards saving. The last paycheck will go towards a couple of bills early in the next month, and the rest shall be mine to save!

However, I have to say sometimes when I blog about extra money, I feel as if I'm bragging about it. I would like to say that I'm not trying to if it seems like it! I just feel the need to write everything out for myself more or less, and why not on my financial blog?

One more thing: I may have to take my cat to the vet soon. Ever since we got a dog, he's been super nervous. He's always been on hyper alert all his life, but I think the new dog is making him lose weight. I easily feel his spine sticking out and you can tell by looking at him that he's thin. He still eats and drinks though. He also had an accident on the rug which is very unusual for him. We'll see how it goes.

Anyway, thanks to those who read my ramblings. I'll most likely check in soon.
