Here a Plan, There a Plan…

Here a Plan, There a Plan… Everywhere a plan plan. I’m big on plans, because they help give direction. Frequently just the act of writing things down seems to help me to accomplish them. I had a plan for getting out of debt. I have a plan for spending money. I’ve got goals. And now,...

September 2009 update

Man, here it is October already. I can hardly believe it. I don’t even remember what all I did in September, besides do a ton of work and spend a ton of money. Unfortunately the “spend a lot of money” part will be a trend for at least 3 more months,...

August 2009 update

I didn’t really do much of anything this month money-wise, except spend an awful lot. I was horrified when I glanced down at my running total of expenditures and realized that I spent more than I earned in August. Ow! I really don’t like it when I do that....

July 2009 update + a few links

Boy, July really flew by. Unfortunately, I’ve been pretty stressed all month and as a result made several silly financial mistakes. At least they were nothing terrible. Also, my net worth decreased dramatically this month, because I bit the bullet and recorded...

Had I not gone hog wild with spending this month, my net worth report would have been better. But as it stands I’m happy with what I spent on and I’ve hopefully finally gotten that little spending-more-than-planned bug out of my system. I’m stopping...

May 2009 update

April 2009 update

Well another month has flown by. Pretty soon it will be boiling hot out here, but with a lot of luck I’ll have AC in my car by then. We’ll see. I still need to get the quote from my mechanic. Although I just realized that I only have about $60 in my...

March 2009 update + some links

Yay, finally a good month for the net worth update! It’s a relief to see my net worth improve for a change. At any rate I’ll keep this short and sweet and jump right to the numbers: Assets: Up $1361.01 Liabilities: Down $1307.17 Change in net worth over...
