Here Is How Pay Day Went

February 14th, 2014 at 10:10 am

My husband did end up buying flowers for Valentine's day. A bouquet of pink, green and orange flowers from Target for $17. The flowers are for the girls and I to share. Pretty for sure, but not needed. He did look cute with the flowers in hand when he walked in the door last night though! Smile

Payday is today. I paid and recorded all upcoming bills, like life insurance, water softener rental, Roth and college investments. I paid current amounts on both Discover cards, which included our internet and electric bills. The total on those cards was just over $500. I also paid $184+ on the US Bank Visa. I left a balance of about $140 as I expect that the rewards I will receive will total at least that. The $100 shows as pending, once it is available I will redeem for credit on the account.

The good news is I was able to save about $350, which I tossed in our emergency fund. I scheduled a $275 principal payment on the mortgage. I plan to make this payment each month to help us pay down nearly $14,000 in principal this year. I'm recording that on the sidebar.

It's been a good payday! How about you...did you household get a paycheck today? Did it all work out like you planned? Any good or bad surprises?

    Pay day for me today! I immediately transferred $1,200.00 to summer fund. I also did a checking account sweep of $282. Any money left in the checking by pay day is automatically transferred to savings. I was not able to deposit the $102 for my 52 Week Savings Challenge because we are basically stuck at home after the 16 inches of snow. Hubby is out there removing snow and making a little bit of money again. \0/

    I sweep extra at the beginning of the pay period...if I have it, it means I didn't go over spending on the credit cards the previous pay period! Glad you hubby is moving snow for cash...always a bonus.

    I get paid every other Thursday - I think this coming Thursday is the next one. I guess I really don't pay too much attention to it, other than when I check my balance, I notice it went up. Smile
