Little Update

Mortgage is down to $48,140.35. Paid my first $100 towards the computer. Also put back $110 for the truck fund.

Still owe about $600 on the credit cards for heartworm treatment, and 6 month car insurance. Should pay it off in 2 more checks.

Then I'll get back to saving. Really wanting to knock out those last few goals. So close!

To the Roth

Sent the $250 goat money to the Roth IRA! Woo Hoo. Getting so close. Only $500 more to go!

Stinks to think that about the time I finish these goals, there will be new ones. lol. But that is life.

I finally got a hold of the fencing guy, so he should be putting in my fence next month sometime! Hurray!

Good Update

Well things are going better than expected.

Computer is great. Love it, and actually am not feeling guilty about it.

I tried to login to my dell account to make a payment, and it says I can't make payments until the first statement comes out. Which isn't for two more weeks. So I just used the money elsewhere, and will begin paying it with my next check.

I completely paid off all the credit cards, and was also able to send $250 to the Roth IRA. Hurray! Only $750 more to go for the year.

I have $750 worth of goats sold, and have received a $250 down payment which is currently transferring from PayPal. I'll get the other $500 at the end of September. I haven't decided yet if I will send that money to the animal fund or the Roth.

Now that vacation is over and we are back to relatively calm, we are going to start earmarking money towards the truck fund again.

If I keep going at the current pace, I should meet all my original 2015 goals. We'll see.

Well the kitten is back sleeping in bed and so far no more accidents. *fingers crossed*

He is quite hyper at night though, so I am finding myself waking up half way through and locking him up. Little stinker.

Not much going to be happening on the money front for the next couple weeks. It's been a spendy month with car repairs, parties, and I'm a bridesmaid again, so I'll be buying another dress.

Dog is starting heartworm treatments next week. Really hoping it doesn't go over the amount they estimated for me. All money is going to be flowed for recent expenses, and I highly doubt I'll have any extra to save this month. Rats.
