Forgive me for the inconsistent blogging lately but I’ve had no computer. Blogging from an old ipad just doesn’t work so I had to wait until my work purchased me a new computer to use. Luckily, I finally got one and am now allowed to finally get back to work… and blogging.
I wrote about using ReadyForZero to pay off car loans faster and am happy to report I’ve upped my principle payments on my car note. It does suck a bit every month to pay extra but I’m happy knowing I’ll get it paid off way before 5 years.
Another change from my new budget: I reduced my car insurance from $118 a month to $98 a month. It doesn’t seem like a lot but I’m happy to save that $20 a month! I have the same coverage just with a different company.
Despite it being summer time, I’ve been leaving my air off in my house during the day and turning it on when I get home. I’m hoping my utility bill is not nearly as high as I was told the average bill was for previous tenants. Luckily my house seems to stay cool with very little air though that might change in coming hot months!
Somehow I’ve managed to cluster my biggest recurring payments (rent, car note, car insurance) on the same week of the month. It’s going to be a very tough week for my paycheck!
