This month, I only need to put 18% of my income on debt. That’s… unbelievable. I’ve been putting anywhere from 35-46% on debt for the last 11 months. Now the extra cash I was putting on credit card debt is all mine. What a concept.
I have to admit that it couldn’t have come at a better time. Next week, Mom, Baby Sis and I are heading to Vancouver to see the Black Keys. Trips to Vancouver are rare, because of constantly-increasing ferry costs, so we will be doing more than just seeing the concert. We will (obviously) eat out, shop a bit and probably hit up IKEA on the way home. That trip + a birthday + Mother’s Day are why my entertainment budget is so big this month.
I also increased my cell phone budget because I’m getting an iPhone 4S today! And it should only cost me $30 + tax. Yes, you read that right. My provider is Fido and for the 2.5 years I have been with them my account has accumulated $130 FidoDollars. When you’re able and ready to renew, you can use your FidoDollars towards the purchase of a new phone. I was going to wait for the next one but my 3GS is so painfully slow now, I’ve decided to just go for it.
Looks like it’s going to be a fun month!
Goals for this month:
- Continue counting calories on Lose It!
- Workout 4x per week
- Put $5 into a jar, whenever I workout
- Read at least 2 books
- Fundraise my way into The Bold Academy!
What do you have planned for this month? :)
