A strange week

January 29th, 2014 at 03:29 pm

Hello All,
This has been an odd week to say the least. I have not worked since Monday because of the weather. I live in central Alabama and we are in a crisis mode because of snow. I know it is nothing for folks who live up north but this is a nightmare for us. We don't know how to drive in this ice and snow. However, since I am home I have finalized my February budget down to the penny. I am so excited!

I opened a Capital One 360 savings account with the goal to save $1K. I found a chart using pintrest on a way to save $1000 during the year. I thought this looked like a good plan. I set up atomic payments that match my paycheck for the entire year. I am pretty excited about that.

I am still working on the goal to pay off that stinking credit card. I have taken advice of others and have shopped around for another card. I think I found one that will work for me. It will have 0 interest for 14 months. I have been approved just waiting on the paperwork to see how much of the balance I can transfer. My goal is still to have it paid off by he end of the year. Looking forward to a February with a new budget. My goal is to see if I can come under budget. Have a great rest of the week!
