Payday was today. Right now we have $982.34 in our checking account. After I subtract the bills due by March 1st (943.42) we are left with $38.92. I have to buy formula for my little one (WIC just covers the baby food) which is $17.00- so that brings me down to $21.92
I still owe 3 different bills for February, totalling $655.39. (One is my student loan payment of $206 which comes out of deferment next week. One is $84 for Loan #1 and the last is 3 payments of tithing that I fell behind on totalling $364.23).
I contacted Loan #1 and they are graciously working with me and will wait until my tax return comes back to be paid. I have $230 in an emergency saving account that I will transfer over, I just received a $75 check for some work I did last month and I have $53 in cash I was saving for groceries. Add all that to $38.92 and I have $379.92.
I've decided to make the tithing payment so I am current on my tithes. I will call my student loan and see if I can work something out to pay them 2 weeks late. So after I pay tithing, I will have $15.96 We have plenty of food to last the next 2 weeks, so I shouldn't need to use any of that for groceries.
Our tax information in on the way to our accountant. I am hoping to see the return in our checking account by March 7th. I am really crossing my fingers for a good return so I can be current on all my bills and pay down some of our credit cards!
