UFMC Days 8&9

January 10th, 2019 at 05:00 am

Day 8 - No spend day!

Day 9 - Phone Bill ($196 - yes, I know it's outrageous); Edit: Money In - $94.07 (FSA reimbursement)

Day 10 (so far) - Gas ($26 - when did gas drop back down under $2??); No other spending anticipated. I did have to resist the urge to get breakfast, and we have plenty for lunch and dinner.

A third of the way through, and overall, I'm pretty pleased. I haven't done much in the way of trying to actually reduce current spending levels other than extraneous spending. But I haven't eaten out at all, even with 2 gift cards and other money coming in. I'm hoping to continue this trend.

On a separate note, if DH's first 2 paychecks are any indication, he's tracking to bring in over double what his civilian job does. We're still in stabilizing mode, but once I know what it'll be on the regular, it'll be easier to map out some concrete plans.

    I think gas dropped under two dollars sometime around Christmas. We are rarely using gas now that we live on base! Both deployments were a positive for our finances. After the first one is when my husband decided to go full time!

    Gas dropped to under $2 here before Christmas and I live in Central Illinois. But, it has gone up to $2 or a little more in the past week.

    Hope DH's job continues to bring in good money! Wouldn't that be swell!
