A lot of tid bits

September 9th, 2010 at 07:51 am

- I've been sick for a week now - not fun at all.

- DH quit his job and got a new job already! This one offers more money, a higher position, better location which means a lot less traveling and have a better future in terms of the type of work he wants to get into.

- Have spent a lot of money on entertainment - we have been celebrating a lot, couple of times when he quit and when he got an offer. You see he quit before finding a new job but luckily the new job offer came on his first day of unemployment.

- Also spent a bit of money on clothing for DH. We got him a new suit and business shirts. We spent over $200 on those items.

- Basically, at the moment our budget is getting pretty ugly. Ohh well, we will try again next year. But in saying that we will still try to do our best to get better this year. However, I don't think we will ever be under budget this year especially with our utility bills just keep going up and up everytime, not because we are using more but because they keep putting the service fees up!

I've been lazy...we have also been too busy with things

Ther are a lot changes happening with us financially. I will talk about it when things are all finalise.

Here's our Aug actual and Sept budget:

As can be seen, DH's medical rebate has been paid in August.

We also managed to put a bit in to our sidebar goals. The Car Fund in now fully funded for the year. And $2K went into the saving/investing fund.
