Back Pay

I have made an addition to my Emergency Fund of $400.00. New total is $3363.00 This is the result of back pay from an annual review at work. Okay, the total amout was $550.00 and do I know exactly where the rest went? Not really. Well if you read back a few days you will see that I had a weekend of grocery shopping that got a little out of hand, so part of it went to cover that. We will just leave it at that. What else? I have been doing really well with my discretionary spending at work. I have not been to the 7-11 for snacks or soda for two weeks. Yoo Hoo. I am keeping track of what I am not spending and at the end of the month I will sweep it into the Emergency Fund. I am still working with YNAB (you need a budget) and I think I have got the bugs worked out of it so it is working smoothly for me. As my interest in managing my finances has increased I have been sharing what I have learned with co-workers at my job. The younger girls surprise me. The lack of financial knowledge that is displayed is scary. I hope that by talking about different areas of finance, that they will become interested enough to develop their own financial roadmaps.

That's great that you can share with your co-workers. I tried a little at first but they got REALLY defensive and I just dropped it. Besides, I dont let anyone know that I have a PF Blog anyway.

No one at work or at home knows about this blog either, and I like it that way.
