Payin' bills

As I mentioned my boyfriend has my wallet. So I asked him to send me my debt card number so I could at least pay the bills. After I had dished it all out I was left with $60 in my chequing account. As I was looking at my accounts I thought 'I am ready for the next pay day.'

Another thing that crossed my mind when I was moving money around was about my general savings fund. I average about $140-150 a pay into this category. But this month because I am getting 3 pays and my general savings is up around $700 the extra $300 from the next two pays would really boost my car fund. But at the same time the idea of that money is its my 10%. I counter this with the old saying 'ya gata spend some money to make some money' and if I am ever going to get that second job I really need the car... So I am stumped.

What do you think?


  1. I would be lost without my car, so personally I would spend it there. However if you have a lot of public transport at hand then maybe for you it,s not such a priority.
    What an awesome feeling to have a choice.

  2. we have public transport but it takes me 2.5h to get to work and another 2.5h to get home compared with 15-30 min by car. Ya I need a car. Thanks for the advice, I am going to take your idea.
