March Pe-Payday

March 17th, 2015 at 01:55 am

Pre-payday, My second favourite day of the month.
It has been a quiet month thus far. I'm probably flirting with the mistress of chaos by saying that.
By flirting I mean waving the red flag of unrepentant destruction.
But I will cross that bridge when I get to it.

DS nailed his alphabet perfectly so we spent $80.00 for the day at the amusement park. We did laser maze, shooting gallery and I remain undefeated in air hockey. Kids had a great time.
Wife had her birthday. We had a nice restaurant meal, I turned her loose in a book store and Ice cream cake!!
Unfortunately ran low on supplements for the gym so had to buy some more, and not the cheap ones.
Got kid's clothes and shoes for the warmer weather and they keep growing.
My truck need some repairs and I needed a few things from the auto store to aid in the repairs.
I knew march's spending would be up but it was up more than I liked.
I like expenses between $2000.00 and $2500.00 but march/April expenses are going to end up around $3413.00. So two very bad months back to back.
*Banker shudder* I now lay awake at night questioning my self.
"do I control expenses or am I merely a puppet doing their bidding?"

THEN next month I have some Government charter licenses due. Out as quick as it comes in.

Income for March 28 = $ 11 200.00

Expenses

$ 835.00 Rent
$ 800.00 Food
$ 200.00 Gas
$ 400.00 Spending April
$ 1178.87 March costs ( kids clothes/shoes, gym supplements, wife birthday, amusement park, truck repairs)
$ 7786.13 Savings March/April

New total savings will be $ 123 555.23.

I have resorted to those reassuringly vague answers when my wife asks about spending.
how are we doing?
"good"
"Very good"
"Perfect"
"Huh?"
and for when she is suspiciously persistent
"so good you should get some chocolate"

If I suddenly stop updating its because I have fled to Nigeria to live my life in financial obscurity and work as an email consultant linking long lost relatives to red tape ensnared fortunes.

Bye

    Oh my, your writing and humor give me a laugh! May there be a lower spend month in your near future.

    You are not alone with giving the spouses vague responses to money questions Smile As we pay down our credit cards, I am wondering how we will go if hubby still thinks he only has $250 available on his card! (As opposed to the actual balance)

    Spending happens. Sounds like it was a combination of fun and necessities, so no bad thing. Maybe next month will balance this one.
