Savings update and feeling the pinch

May 2nd, 2014 at 03:30 am

I added another $1,000 to the long-term account, and $25 to my short-term account. I think that my short-term account would be what some consider the "slush fund". That money ebbs and flows when things crop up, like an unexpected gift to purchase or big vet bill. Instead of separating my money into several little areas, I will just pull from this account as needed. My intention is to not pull from the long-term account, that's for wealth building. Yet it's available for big emergencies.

8 more weeks left of school, and so much to do in the meantime! I'm being as efficient as possible at work so that I don't have to bring much home. I have another stack of responsibilities at home and I want to focus on those, not carry over my day job.

Home life has been tense, relationships can be so much work sometimes...is it wrong for me to want my own little cottage in the backyard, all to myself? Smile I know things will get easier, life has ups and downs, but I'm tired of the struggles.

    I hear that. I just put another big payment on my car plus savings plus figuring out how to pay up on all the bills. It sure isn't fun but its good to know that I have a job for now and can do all this and will be in a much better position when this is all over!

    Just remind yourself of the end goal and you'll get through just fine!
