Back on track!!

June 9th, 2006 at 08:13 pm

I'm starting to get back on track!

After my taxes threw my finances for a spin, I started to get money back into my checking account. Then, transferring to a new school cost me a lot more money in gas which pretty much cut my checking account down again. But, it's been almost a week since my last day of classes and I already see a difference. I have money sitting my account and it MUCH more than I have charged on my credit cards (which for once is REALLY low...I've been to busy to do anything...it's pretty much just gas and a few school expenses). So, I'm getting ahead. YAY!!!

Also, I've determined that by the end of the month, I will be able to put $800 more towards my car. That leaves me with at least $6,400! YAY! Smile

How can I put another $800 towards my car? Well, this week I will have worked 11 more hours than I usually work. Plus, during the next two weeks I will work a total of 50 hours more than usual! YAY!!! I plan on putting ALL of my extra money in savings and towards my car. I'm soooo happy!

Also, I have three cars that I have that are exactly what I want! They range in price from $5,900 to $7,495. I just need to contact the people and then check the carfax, narrow it down to the one I like, and get it checked out by a technician. I should be checking out the cars in person tomorrow. I'm so happy. This will be MY first car. I will own it. (well, my dad's name will also be on the title, but it will be MINE.) This is a huge step for me. My biggest purchase yet.

So, I ended up spending over $350 on gas during May and June (so far). That isn't bad considering I was driving over 100 miles a day. I can't wait to get my new car because the gas milage will be 40 mpg. That will help save a lot of money!!!
