Extra Money and Benefits

November 18th, 2010 at 06:37 pm

Today my husband and I chose our benefits for 2011. We decided to keep the plan we are currently in. We were thinking of choosing a high deductible health plan. But I don't think we are ready to make the change yet. We'll see how things go for 2011.

I made a deposit to one of our long term savings accounts today. It was for $50. Tomorrow I have to cash a check from one of my clients and send a cashier's check off to my CPA for work he did for me last month. I'll be glad when I pay him off. I hate having bills hanging over my head, especially when the person is also a friend. My CPA is a good family friend. So paying him off is priority.

I am booked with work next week before Thanksgiving. I want to be off Thursday and Friday. So I scheduled all my work Monday through Wednesday. I thought about taking advantage of some Black Friday deals next week. But I'm feeling I should avoid the malls altogether. I am doing such a good job at saving. If I go to the malls, I feel like my old habits will resurface and I'll be spending more than I should. I'm making about $600 extra next week. So I feel like I should direct that money to our joint money market and pay some bills with it.

    Follow your instincts. If you feel that you will fall back into bad money habits don't do it until you know you can resist the urge to spend. Woo Hoo to making an extra $600 next week!

    DH said something to me about going Black Friday shopping with the girls (we are supposed to be going to Reno for Thanksgiving). I said, "why would I want to do that?" Haha. I have no desire. The only thing I would really like is a small crockpot. Our is too big for just the 2 of us now.
