So my very first goal was to aim to reach $1K in my chequing account so that I could waive the monthly fees. I'm pretty sure I'm not going to be able to make that: the minimum "fee waive" for my particular account is $3500!
Okay, so I have one less thing to do this year with respect to money. This leaves me an additional $40 a month to put toward my debt if I look at it that way. And less for me to think about achieving.
Otherwise, I did okay today. I'm thrilled that I paid $1000 towards my computer. That leaves me with an outstanding balance of just $325 or so. I did also add to my groceries, but not with cash. I stopped to buy rice cakes and spelt flour ($32.13 - RIDICULOUS!!!) and butter ($4.59). The first items went on my CC and the second on debit. *Sigh*
Mind you, I have over $100 in rolled coin now, which I'm taking to the bank tomorrow to put on my LOC and Visa card. I have to remember to take my debit & credit cards out of my wallet, so I'm not tempted, and replace them with a $20, so I have cash if I need it, but a set limit.
I've had such a great holiday that I'm not going to let the CC slip get to me. It's not worth it in the long run and besides, now I can have PANCAKES for breakfast!! :)
