Big Money

July 18th, 2014 at 02:42 pm

I spent some big money yesterday. $715 to be exact.

I bought all the posts, and little things I need for the fencing. Put it on the credit card, and got money transferred from the LOC to my checking account. I will wait a day or two until the transactions arent pending, and then I will pay off the credit card.

I have $1,500 left on the LOC max amount. Just enough to pay for the labor. He is starting this weekend, but I dont think he will be done until next weekend. So I wont owe him until then.

Tomorrow I have to go buy the actual fencing, which will total right around $1,000. I will put that on the credit card as well, and just pay it down as much as I can. When the statement hits, I will just pull from my EF and pay the rest off before it is due.

Then all that is left to buy are the gates. Which will be around $250 I think. They are special ordered, and I have no idea when they will come in. Hopefully I can put it off a couple weeks to save the money. lol.

Everything is going to work out. Money is tight, but I just keep breathing and remember that once the car is sold, and some goats are sold all this debt will go away. Just keep swimming, just keep swimming.

The fence is going to look fantastic, and the critters will be so happy.

    I would guess that on a farm, a fence is a necessity. Do what you have to do to get it installed! You can make up the money later.

    Good on you! Give yourself a big pat on your back for making a plan, researching costs and value of having the post and fencing installed and putting your plan into action. I wish all 20 something understood the principles of money management that you've totally absorbed. You're part of a teeny, tiny percentage that 'get's it.'

    Thanks guys! I forgot to mention. That another store an hour away had T-posts for $0.30 cheaper each. I talked the local store into matching their price. So on 120 T-Posts I saved $36! They were also running an ad on concrete, so I was able to save $16 on that. Those little savings do add up.
