SO's paycheck...

September 1st, 2010 at 11:01 am

Well went to the bank today to cash the SO's paycheck to add another $102.50 to cash on hand bringing us up to $200. Got to the bank waited in line to find out there wasn't enough in her bosses account to cash the check. We use the same bank so they always verify funds before cashing or depositing to help prevent fees. The SO now has to contact her boss to find out when we can cash the check. Glad we aren't needing that money desperately this week as we had in the past when both of us were on unemployment.

On the plus side we only need $485 from my check on Friday plus whats left in the checking account to cover all the bills for September. Friday morning I will get up and pay all the bills once my check has been direct deposited. I think I'm going to pull $300 cash out for our Grocery/ Cat Litter/ Paper goods for September. Also I want to try to not eat out more then once for the entire month. The last 3 weeks we ate out once a week buy for the 3 months before that we only ate out twice. We still have alot of meat in the freezer and plenty of meals we can toss in the crock pot also that are easy to make.

Hoping to try an put atleast $1000 away this month for hte slower winter months when it is just harder to get the jobs in because of the weather.

    It is great to have them PIF. I did end up spending some money today. Purchased a gas powered auger for digging post holes. It is a tax write off for work anyways and will improve my job speed and time when I need to put in a post. Figure I will save atleast 20-30 minutes plus much more once the ground freezes solid this winter.
