Why I like paydays!

February 15th, 2008 at 05:18 pm

Today was payday and my Direct Deposit is now in action so my pay was in the account early this morning. Nice! And although I worked only a few hours one of the two weeks in this pay period, my pay was about $100 more than I expected. Also nice! But a powerful testimony of my poor skills with numbers. Wink

I made enough to fund the grocery, laundry, and entertainment envelopes for the next two weeks and the remainder, small as it is, goes to savings. DH will have to fund the gas envelope but that shouldn't be any kind of burden.

DH and I went out for Mexican food tonight. We still had the original $25 we'd budgeted for 'entertainment' and decided to use it for a meal out. We had a nice time with no guilt feelings.

I just love paydays! I feel a little bit of power on these days and even though short lived, it's a great feeling.

Most of our bills are paid for this month. We do need to pay the storage bill and the Yellow Pages bill but have a little time until those are due. We have most of the money for March rent and are working on saving for March utilities even though it's still February.

Have I mentioned how much I love the envelope system? It's been amazingly successful for us!

On the smoking cessation front, it's been 2 weeks, 1 day, 12 hours, and 31 seconds. We've saved $192.84!! Go us!

    Paydays are great - especially when you get out in front of the bills!

    Success is a nice feeling and you deserve to feel good about it, ya'll have been putting in the hard efforts, glad to see it paying off for you!! Keep on truckin'!!!

    You're right about feeling powerful. It's a great feeling when you start taking charge of your life and getting ahead.

    That's what I like about Suze Orman's message. It's about being and feeling powerful over your life.

    You said that you have storage sheds. Do you rent them for personal stuff or business? If it is for personal, you could probably sell alot and help the bottom line.
