Following up on my post last week about being more transparent and posting more numbers. This is my income and spending plan for this week based on my current forecast.
|Auto – Gas/Main||25-Aug-18||-35|
- Sea Cadet pays me $50 towards car insurance every two weeks. This doesn’t quite cover the cost for his insurance but the even number makes it easier for both of us. And I feel it’s teaching him responsibility while not burdening him while he’s focusing on school. (He’s still looking for a new job since returning last week and just started back to school last Thursday.)
- When I wrote this, I didn’t know how much I would earn from Upwork this week. I’m hoping I remember to come back and put the number in. (If I didn’t, remind me in the comments and I’ll pop it in.) There’s a 10 day hold between the end of the work week and pay date.
- Princess has decided she wants to return to camp again next summer. The cost for the two week session is $1,650. I paid the $50 deposit to lock it in for her. Princess is going to cover the cost of camp. She must pay $178 every month. She has been working since June to save and has almost 3 month’s payments saved. The cost will be charged to my account so I track it, and with her ability to work limited with school and volleyball right now, I will cover if she gets behind. I trust her to pay it in full on time. She has Christmas and birthday between then and now as well. (When faced with the price tag and knowing I wasn’t budging in paying for it, Gymnast decided to forego camp.)
