Here it Goes – Here’s How Much I Make

by

UPDATE: 6/24/06
Projected 2006 – $45,000

~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~

I was reading some blogs and I came across Madame X’s topic about why she believes in revealing her income.

I have to add that I think it is a great what she is doing. At the same time, I can see why other pf bloggers are hesitant so reveal such personal information.

I have eluded to what my family’s income is in a comment I have made within my blog – but I am inspired by her to just put it out there. Why not? It will give you a better picture on my financial position.

Ready?

Projected 2006 – 40,000
2005 – 26,000
2004 – 28,400
2003 – 27,400
2002 – 23,700

I have to say projected because who knows what the future holds. I have worked some overtime lately so it could be higher. Or, I could be laid off tomorrow. But, at this given moment – that is what we are making (both my husband and I work).

So, when I say my mortgage is $337.00 – you can see it isn’t too bad with what we make. We’ve never really considered ourselves poor and we make do with what we have. Now – we both say that we would be rich once our debt is paid off because we would have so much extra a month for other things (about $1300/month). 🙂

It also should be noted that I don’t live in a big city and I live in a fairly rural area. So my cost of living isn’t as high.

So, there is is. I feel a bit naked – so I better get some more clothes on 😛

Paperless Filing – Here I Come!

by

If you print many things out from your computer so you will have it for later, here’s an idea for you – print it to .pdf!! That way, it can be filed on your computer and easily opened later for you to look at. At the end of the year, save all the files to a CD or DVD and file in your safe deposit box.

To get a free .pdf printer for your PC (as seen in Computer Shopper magazine), go to this link http://www.cutepdf.com/ and look for the CutePDF Writer Freeware.

I have downloaded this “printer” for my PC and I LOVE it!! It is helping keep my desk clean, which is always good 🙂
