Going Out/Gift Fund: +$5.71 = $26.44 (birthday present bought and dinner for two, that’s why this is once again gone back to chump change)
Bills: +$40= $540 (took some money out again for birthdays… argh, and come next week the gas bill is due… grrr)
Emergency/Savings Fund + $62.25 = $715.79 (over the $700 mark! This is the most I’ve saved officially in at least 5 years)
Amex: +$50 = -$3,164.05
ANZ: +$50 = -$4,721.92
Westpac: +$50 = $6,698.99
Citibank: +$50 = -$5,141.14
Total Debt: -$19,726.10
So I’ve got a massive shindig (hootanannie, barn-dance, whatever you want to call it) to go to in a couple of weeks. That’s why I’ve cut back $150 from the normal payment into the Citibank credit card so I’ll have some money for this. It’s the one time for the rest of the year (until Christmas-New Years that is) that I will be going out, so its going to be a big one. So next weeks credit card payment will also be reduced significantly. But as you can see I’ve tried to offset it by increasing the other payments by $10 each. So hopefully come end of the month I won’t go over the $20,000 mark again when interest hits (why do people have to be born, and then I have to meet them and then I have to celebrate their birthdays? WHY? :P).
Also today is interview and procedure day! I am currently at work. Have been here since 6am (again!) so I can leave early. It’s quite peaceful.
Honestly the universe likes doing this to me.
Nothing happens in my life for months and in the space of a few short days I have a bunch of things come at me all at once. Next thing you know I’ll meet the girl of my dreams on the way to the interview, knock her up and get married. All before 5pm today. Although that would mean having sex whilst the interview is being conducted… Gives performance anxiety a whole new meaning.
