Per Diem Arrived

August 30th, 2017 at 04:47 am

Did I mention my husband completed his training, graduated and is now finally back home after a very long summer? On Friday, within an hour of arriving home he submitted his travel voucher for the trip. And it arrived in our account today!

The grand total amount of per diem and some mileage for first trip and last trip came to $5,348.25! A very nice chunk of change.

We will spend time talking about how to handle these funds. I personally just want it to go to the Big Goal, but at a minimum we are going to replace an old set of speakers in our family room. They are going out and we talked about replacing them at Christmas, but then had a change of plans for that money. Now is the time to make it happen.

I'll let you know after our next budget meeting what the plan will be. Smile

    That's awesome! That's about what my husband's per diem came out to be for this trip, but we get reimbursed weekly. That money allowed us to not spiral further into debt with all of the emergencies, but I look forward to the day when we're stable enough that we actually get to decide ourselves what to do with that money!
