I applied and got a job in the billing department of my company. So I know I have a job at least until the end of the year. It is a raise in pay so this will help me put money away. I have also added to my personal stockpile of toiletries, etc as well as the one for my current apartment. 1 week ago

We may have found a place. We have to call Thursday to put in an application. Crossing our fingers.. 2 weeks ago
My company was bought by a competitor at the beginning of the year. A lot of us thougt that as long as we continued bringing in good revenue we would be ok. But there has been some chatter about them shutting us down in September. It is hard to tell which way it will go. We could be a good source of revenue for them or buying us out is an easy way to get rid of the competition. Needless to say this is nervewracking. My next financial goal is to bulk up my emergency fund. I will start this next paycheck. I have at least 3 months worth of expenses already. I have been stockpiling for my own place which I had the plan of moving into in 1 year but I am going to talk to my roomate and have each of us stock up on things for our current apartment. I will continue to set a few things aside for my own place. If worse comes to worse I can stay where I am. I will have to work around the issues that come up with living with someone but I have been doing it for years as it is. 3 weeks ago
There are financial goals I have to meet before I can move out on my own. I have already made my contribtion to my Roth this year so I have to the remaining goals to meet.
Emergency Fund: I have about $3000 to finish my E.F. and then put it away and not touch it.
Rebuild Fund: The amount I have promised to my church to rebuild after the fire.
Investment Fund: I want to save a couple thousand and start investing. I am going to gather more information on how to invest in the next two weeks.
Apartment Fund: Saving for down payment,furniture, moving cost, towels, dishes etc. I am aiming for $5000.
I have started building a stockpile on toiletries so I will have a cusion. I have a list of about 30 items and have stocked up on two of them. I keep my eyes open for sales and coupons so I can save as much money as possible. 3 weeks ago
This will happen in about 1 year. I am hoping for a 1 bedroom but will settle for a studio if it is what I can afford. This is kind of scary financially and emotionally but truthfully emotionally it is very much needed and I am starting to look forward to it. I will hopefully finish my Emergency Fund in September and will then be able to save for deposits and such. In the mean time I am going to start stockpilng things that I will need such as toiletries and things like towels, dishes, etc. I will set aside money for furniture because I want to wait and see how much room I will have. 1 month ago
