Tough Month

January 16th, 2014 at 10:14 am

I knew it was going to be a tough month. We are on a no spend month other than absolute necessities. DH is working as a long-term sub which meant two weeks of no income over the holidays. Of course with snowstorms and the holidays, the tutoring business was less than stellar as well. So far, we haven't had to hit up the emergency fund (and I have managed to save for the 52 week challenge).

I am trying to pick up some extra writing assignments because both of the cars are in my name and I have to register them and get them inspected (I hate having a January birthday). I expect one will need new tires (registration and inspection are saved for all year, the tires will be a bit of a stretch). Luckily, I picked up three new students (tutoring) this week. I will let you know how it all pans out at the end of the month.

    January has been rough here, too. We're living on the "limited income" budget, bulking up the EF as much as possible. We had (planned purchase) tires. I blew the grocery budget for the first two weeks. We needed ink and contact lenses. Good luck with the remainder of the month!
