I had one of my weird, disjointed and generally crazed out whacko posts ready to go. Then I realised its weekly update post day and that it will have to wait. So here are the numbers!
Health Insurance – $48.65 (fortnightly expense)
Savings/Emergency Fund: + $62.25 = $525.18
Going Out/Gift Fund: + $15.44 = $77.15 (… Yes. The total amount is lower than last week… And no I didn’t write about what I spent it on… Stop judging meeeeee! *runs of flailing arms and wailing and sobbing*)
Bills: + $80 = $580 (See. I told you not to judge me. This amount doubled. Mainly due to some people paying me back that I don’t even remember. Yes, I’m kinda loose with money when it comes to friends. Hey! Just cause I trust my friends doesn’t mean I’m naive! Stop judging meeeeee! *runs of flailing arms and wailing and sobbing*)
Oh and I’m taking the stuff like rent groceries & transport off the update cause well, they’re set expenses and not going to change any time soon. So every week imagine this big black hole. Lets call this hole “Crap Needed to Stay Alive”. And every weekly update imagine me shoveling $270 into that hole. Okay? You have a question? What? How much of that is budgeted for food? $50 dollars. How can I live with just $50 dollars for food? I eat a lot of cheap stuff alright! Stop judging meeeeee! *runs of flailing arms and wailing and sobbing*
Alrighty, now that I’ve gotten that out of my system. Dum dum dum do dum. Hmmm… that’s supposed to be a drumroll, but I just said it in my head and it didn’t sound like a drumroll. Oh. Wait.
Thank you subconscious for pointing out how stupid I am in front of all these people.
Amex: + $40 = – $3,239.79
ANZ: + $30 = – $4,674.53
Westpac: + $40 = – $6,828.99 (Argh! $106.39 in interest! Argh and double argh!)
Citibank + $180 = – $5,380.54
Total Debt: – $20,123.85
The Westpac card gets the interest added on the third week of every month, the other 3 cards have theirs on the fourth week of every month. So I’ve still got about $220 dollars of interest to look forward to this month.
Picture me swearing profusely and creatively at this point. Keep at it for five minutes. I’ll wait.
You’re only halfway. Two and a half more minutes to go.
I feel better.
Okay so after next weeks paycheck and all the interest getting added to my balances I will still (guess who found out why ctrl-i wasn’t working before on his keyboard and managed to fix it?) be roughly $20,090 in the red. Damn that magic $20,000 is a hard nut to crack. But in saying that, the good news is that it will be the first week of August that I will manage it, not the second week of August as previously expected! Hooray for me!
There will be jiggying. *said in Darth Vader voice*
There WILL be jiggying.
