Financial Updates

The price of gas in my area increased tremendously in the past two weeks, from $2.53 per gallon to $2.72. As much as I do not like public transportation $4 per day does seems like a bargain.

This months unplanned spending for me totalled $52.86. Ann Taylor had an extra 25% off clearance. I used it as an opportunity to stock up on 3 tops for works. Money well spent, unplanned but well spent.

Taxes at the new job are eating me alive. I am in the process of figuring out the retirement options so I can sign up as soon as possible. In the mean time I am still contributing to the 401K at the part-time gig. It is only two cents here or there, but every little bit helps.

Gas is up to $3.15 here, and I'm pretty positive my car's running on empty now that the weekend's nearly here. Thank goodness I'll be out of town, no driving for me!

Good on you for keeping up the 401(k) contributions.

Yeah, gas is shooting sky high out here as well. I'd do public transportation if it were an option, but it's not. Fortunately, I only live 7 miles from work. Unfortunately, my car gets the worst gas mileage I've seen in years.

Kudos for continuing to contribute to the 401(k)!!
