Move over November - December is Coming Through!

I've decided to call it a month as there is nothing left to come off my chequing account.... good thing considering it's empty! Now I just need to make it to payday on Wednesday with the $10 I have in my wallet. No stops for coffee in the morning until Friday. Only going to Timmy's on Fridays instead of Monday through Friday saves me in the neighbourhood of $1.80 x 4 = $7.20 per week or $375.00 per year and that's nothing to sneeze at! Of course that's assuming I could last a year which in all honesty I couldn't so the point is moot.

Really, I have nothing to complain about - the money went as planned which is to say it's gone!

Happily (or unhappily, depending on your point of view) most of my $$ went to the payment of debt. I'm happy about being able to make large debt repayments but if I didn't have that debt to begin with think how much $$ I'd have saved by now, so you see....(ok, just spent the last 20 minutes talking to Kazi about people who claim unemployment benefits but who have no interest in working, her cold, what the difference is between the 2 kinds of onions in the pantry (well 1 was potatoes not onions so that is the difference), her boyfriend's cousin who is staying with his family now after spending a night or two in jail after a fistfight with her boyfriend (ex-boyfriend I'm assuming but you never know) and now I have no idea where I was going with my thoughts sorry folks!) 

No doubt I was going to say something profoundly life-altering but now we'll never know!

That's it for me tonight folks as I'm  headed downstairs to cycle another 15km on my journey to Brighton. I hope y'all had a great Monday!

I say that all of the number crunching might have fried your brain a bit.

Great job on your debt payment!! Our "December" will start Thursday, payday... But I'm just flying by the seat of my pants next month! Janary will be a new budget, new year! ;)

I'm starting with Decembers budget this week too..must say I'm glad to have all the Christmas spending out of the way - now to concentrate on that mortgage!

Yay for debt repayment!
