February Going Ons
Hey Everyone, it has been awhile! I have been having some internet problems and computer problems and by the end of the day, I just don't have the energy to fool around with computers. Everything is back up and working now!
Does anyone have any interesting weekend plans? I plan to work in the yard. I need to clear out the flower beds, etc. There are lots of weeds and bugs to deal with here in Florida. I may even cut the grass this weekend. The temperatures are supposed to reach the 80s this weekend. I also need to clean the garage and the shed and the back porch and and and.....
On to the finances. I contributed $500 to my Roth IRA this month. This was only half of what I contributed last month. However, I only have $4,500 left to contribute for the year. Don't forget the contribution limit increased to $6,000 this year! Once I max out my Roth I will move on to my taxable account.
I paid $1,000 towards my furniture bill. Only $1,900 left to pay off! I can't wait to be debt free (except for my mortgage again). This is the 0% financing deal that I used to replace my 13 year old mattress, etc.
I donated $50 to charity this month. This went to my law school. I usually contribute $100 a year to my alma mater. I already gave $50 in January, so I am done with that for the year. Next month I will probably give to my local legal aide organization.
I did add $200 to my savings account and $50 to my pet care fund. I also paid my almost $200 escrow shortage.
All of my credit cards remain paid in full, but I do owe my dentist office $10 for my most recent cleaning (from Monday). I hate when they bill later, I'd rather pay when I leave, but oh well.
Have a wonderful Friday!
