PAY DAY AT LONG LAST!!

Well I was down to my last couple of dollars but I made it through April intact and in the black. But my savings look like this:
Awwwww, poor piggy - he's running on EMPTY!!
However....my Line of Credit looks like this:
Sooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooo I am now on a mission to do this:
One of these days I'm going to do a blog post using pictures only and see if you can figure out what I'm saying. I think you could have figured this post out quite easily!

April will see me putting $2,000 back into my Emergency Fund. And I will fully fund my PEI Property Tax and Home Insurance Fund to the tune of $1200 as a payment of $299 is due at the end of May. I should also be able to put $200-$300 into my PEI Home Maintenance Fund in May and fully fund it in June ($2000). That will cover the cost of purchasing a new fridge and stove this summer when I'm out in PEI.

From July to the end of this year I will fund my Christmas/gift Fund ($1500) and save around $20,000+ to put back into my TFSA. Then my piggy bank will look like this:
So now it's that magical moment that only comes twice a month - the moment when I get to start transferring my hard-earned $$$ into my various savings accounts. It will be nice to see my EF funded again - I'll breathe a bit easier now. My savings accounts have nowhere to go but UP!


See ya soon!!

  8. Awesome!!! You are one brave girl. I just couldn't drain the savings to pay off the car loan, though I have to admit I have thought about it.

  16. It's taken a long time to get here - I started with a 7 year plan 5 years ago. Step by step, fall off the wagon here and there and just climb back on and keep plugging away. No magic to it, just a dream.
