I’ve entered in all of the income I’ve received:
- Centrelink payment
- Pay from my job
- Chris’s contribution to the rent
- $7 towards “buffer”
I have enough to cover the next lot of rent and $30 to put towards my chiro appointment, but need another 20. Do not have enough for the electricity bill due at the end of the month. Am not earning anything at the moment either. Still, there’s food in the fridge to last a little while and I’m going away this weekend to Mum’s and next weekend to spend some time with Chris’s family. At least we won’t have to worry about meals then.
about how I want to approach this bootcamp.
I turned 25 last month and so far, I’m liking what this age has to offer. I do feel that I’m blooming. I handle stress a lot better and don’t spend time worrying about things I have no control over. I say yes to invites, instead of thinking up excuses. I even arrange meet-ups myself now. I’m enjoying a great balance in my health & wellness. My relationship is still going strong, still full of laughter, even in the midst of wedding planning. I’m being booked more for relief work and more often in advance. I’m enjoying where I’m at right now and just wanted to acknowledge that.
The bud that’s struggling to flower however, is financial. It seems that I have just enough money to cover our rent, my chiro appointment and groceries. Sometimes only just. And then something comes up (like an electricity bill) that completely throws me out of whack. I want to escape this precarious way of living. And I’m going to do so by utilising the YNAB software.
with rule 1 for awhile, but have fallen off the wagon. It’s time to get back on!
The rest will come in due time, with rule 4 being the hardest to obtain. And the most rewarding when I get there.
quite a bit more time with Liani lately and I’ve really been enjoying her company :)
is now sorted. I asked Chris’s sister to step down today and she took it very well. Even mentioned that she’d already be involved as we would be becoming sisters-in-law, which was sweet. Also offered to help out with things like the hen’s night. So now we have 3 bridesmaids and 3 groomsmen. Phew!
