Lean days ahead [Jun. 26th, 2004|11:59 am]
Constant Vigilance in Financial Affairs


[mood |nervousa leeetle bit nervous]

My financial situation:

* My last day of work at my current job is Friday, July 2.
* Will be in unpaid training from 7/5 - 8/5, 8-5 M-F.
* I begin pay status at my new job 8/1, but will not get my first check until the end of the month.
* I can stretch out my pay status at my current job for maybe 2 more weeks using vacation and a few hours of work here and there (I'm a-gonna be busy).
* I am married but have my own financial area which I must manage wisely to make up for past lameness with my losing-patience husband.
* I have $1 in my savings account.

Look for serious posting from me here soon.

*2 cell phone bills ($35 without overage,roaming, or 4-1-1).
::reminds self not to use cell unwisely ::
*2 student loan payments ($53)
*2 smallish Macy's bill payments.
*2 World Vision deductions, $23
*$100 - pledge
*church (proportional to income).

Then there's family groceries and personal expenses.

With a little bit of pain, what I'm telling myself is that my clothes are just fine. I do not need to buy new ones just because I have a new job. My current ones will be new to them!
Right? :)
