I've updated my sidebars to reflect mostly positive changes this week!
EFund: CHECK!! I've hit the $1K goal for this already! I was able to add a little extra to get me to the goal a bit sooner, but now that I'm there I'm going to see how much more I can sock away before school starts.
RRSPs: No change (yet!). I'm going to leave them as they are through September, as I get two full paycheques then - my last ones this year - and I'd like to put away as much as I can before any changes take effect.
VISA: PIF June 13 - $0 balance!
M/C: PIF & cut up (card interest was 21.99% + $6 p/mo). I think I'll get my deposit back for this which, if I remember correctly, is $150.
(new) M/C: $100 balance, but will be PIF the first paycheque in July. (card interest is 5%)
LOC: $1300 (loan interest 6.5%)
Total debt: $1400
Car: need to make an appointment to get the ball bearing replaced (approx $300). I also need to remember I have to pay the 2nd half of the insurance at the end of July, too, and need $400 for that.
Tenant insurance: HAVE to do this Monday a.m. My landlady keeps asking.
School: Up a little to $2120. I'm going to see if I can get this to $2500 by the time school starts.
I have a roommate for two months which is so far going well. She's very nice, very quiet and we get along well, so I'm not hating it. I'm still adjusting, but it's not as bad as I thought it might be. It does help that she's a PhD student, so is busy and focussed on her work. I said right up front that if there's ever a time where I seem quiet or tetchy or grumpy it's not her, it's me. I'm just not used to sharing my space and I withdraw if I feel crowded or overly social. She totally gets it, but it's always good to say it rather than have people feeling uncomfortable or unwanted. It's a small space, so communication is important.
I had an extra shift yesterday, which is great. I don't usually work on Fridays and for some reason it felt like Saturday to me (although I don't work Saturdays, either). I had an early lunch so it made for a really long day, plus I had a thumping headache all day, too, which didn't help. I'm going in for part of the afternoon tomorrow, too, and will ensure that extra pay goes towards debt and savings when it shows up.
I've been riding my bike to work all week which has been great. I've enjoyed it and yesterday took the "long" way to work around the river trail, adding an extra 2.5km to the ride. It was sunny and quite warm, although a bit breezy, but it was a great way to start the day. I'm not even complaining that I have to ride home in the wind anymore, so I'm obviously getting used to it.
I have a dinner with friends tomorrow and lunch on Monday with another, so I'm looking forward to that. It's just a quiet day today, laundry perhaps, dishes, puttering...
