Budget July 1-15

$1,480 mortgage
$367 student loan (already paid and blogged about!)
$60 pet plan (still need to cancel this)
$90 groceries
$217 spending
$100 savings
$100 gas

I am still closing out my budget from the last two week period, but it looks like I will have some leftover cash in various budgeted areas to put on my student loans (I think about $150), i.e., snowflakes.  I am excited because I having been dreaming and planning about what I will do with my money once the student loan is paid off.  However, I am kind of a pessimist so I tend to think that something bad will happen before I can pay off the very last loan. I overcompensate by obsessively  focusing on finding money to pay on the debt, until it has been paid in full. Anyways, I think I will work on closing out the end of June so I can make an extra payment on my student loan and avoid just a tiny bit of interest charges.


  1. I obsessively think about those things as well! Sometimes it is good to step away. I think about you and hope a good job pops up soon!

    1. So glad you will still be blogging! I really enjoyed reading your blog and I was so bummed to hear you didn't want to post anymore. And yes, I do need to take a step back from stressing about finances, it's not good for the body or the mind.
