I get my final paycheck tomorrow but one of my former co-workers texted me this morning and told me the amount that was pending in my account (perks of being a teller). I was really only expecting about $700 as it was just my 80 hours of vacation pay that they owed me but I was surprised to hear that my check was actually $970! That would be overtime that didn't go on my previous check and then some bonus pay that I was owed. That's definitely exciting.
I've been looking over my budget spreadsheet and tweaking it where I can. I managed to decrease two sections and eliminated one while increasing one category by $5 (I eliminated my Discover card since I rolled that into my credit union loan and that upped my credit union payment just a few dollars) I'm hoping that over time I can start decreasing the amounts that I put into some of my envelopes... Probably just like my "fun money" and my "eating out" money because those are ones that aren't totally necessary.
I'm considering starting to 52 week money challenge, even though the year is more than half over. I could throw enough money into it to catch myself up or I could start by saying that next week would be week one and so on. I guess I'll weigh my options on that and let you know what I decide to do.
