New Budget

December 15th, 2006 at 01:55 pm

Got the new pay stub today for Hubby's new job. The last one was abbreviated and didn't have the 40lK stuff, and I decided to wait until the first full one to see how it would affect the budget. Even though he is getting more pay, the retirement deduction is higher and so is the medical stuff. All in all, it is a little over 100 less for each two weeks. So I went to the spreadsheets and started to play. What is so great is that I can see right away where it will affect us. This budgeting thing is great. So I adjusted a few accounts that have been a little underutilized for now and the figures all seem to add up. We'll see how it does.

I simply cannot wait to see how paying off these debts will affect the budget. It seems such a slow process, but I am trying to learn patience....

    All these things you are doing will make a big difference. In retrospect it was the journey that was the kick, not the arrival.
    I'm alone now and have no money issues but there is no excitement, there's no challenge to make it work. Please enjoy the trip, there is great satisfaction in seeing it all happen.

    Never thought of it that way. Thanks for a different perspective! Will help me with the patience problem.
