I can’t believe how fast 2014 is going. It’ll be the end of the year before we know it.

  • Expenses $200
  • Personal $270
  • Savings $94.63

This week I’ve got a lot going on in terms of spending money – ugh. I have to organise my boyfriend’s birthday present, get some new work shoes and some work shirts. The next two weeks are going to be horrendously busy on the work front but then again three jobs will do that to a person. I’ve also got to sort out some uni work and get organised for my student teaching placement next term. Only $289 to go until my savings goal is done! I’m keen to put away as much as possible this year.

There’s nothing quite like having four casual positions and none of them give you enough hours to make it by. If only I had more study left so I could be eligible for government assistance. Oh well. Fingers crossed I can scale back after my 3 week school placement.

I’m now working 3 jobs so there will be more updates. Although I’m not getting paid a lot at my third job, my plan is to send it all to savings when I can.

  • Expenses $200
  • Personal $214
  • Savings $366.47

I’m finally getting somewhere with my savings. I’m nearly at my $500 to go mark. So ready for this Emergency Fund to just be done.
