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!!

I'm still just awe struck that you're debt free.  That is just so wonderful.  and now you get to have some fun spending a bit on the new house, that will feel awful nice.

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.

Thank you! Keeping my fingers crossed that all goes smoothly!

Thanks Laura! I'm more motivated to save than to pay debt as this money will be mine, ALL MINE!

Jharrison56 said...

Wish I was that brave in ALL areas of my life (WORK SUCKS!!) but we do what we can eh?

Jharrison56 said...

Thanks Tanner! It's a leap of faith!

Sure hope so! Feeling very motivated!

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.

More pics to come...just for you!

Jharrison56 said...

Yep, we're finally getting there. I started with a 7 year plan 5 years ago - the time is going by quickly!

You and your savings accounts are impressive!!!

Jharrison56 said...

While I agree that I am impressive, my savings accounts are less than, hence the big push over the next couple of years!
