Spendy year so far

August 4th, 2011 at 05:19 am

It's more than half a year and I'm very much behind my goals. In the last three months we have spent nearly $ 20000 towards renovation and other legal expenses for our inherited property.

Also DH's dream job has been withhold due to restructure of the division. It's a relaxing job and DH would enjoy it. But the University HR has advised that position will be re-advertised once the restructure is completed. Fingers crossed!

So far we have made $ 8000 mortgage extra payment and 2500 in savings. Paid off car loan.

Next month is going to be a big spend month as we will be receiving the winter electricity bill. I guess it will around $ 1000. I know that a big bill for 3 months, but Canberra winter months are too cold and reaches -8 in the nights.

On the positive note, our inherited property has been valued at $ 120,000.

Sorry for not posting in the last months! I'm so frustrated about all the spending and didn't have the motivation to write the blog!

February and March - Not Good Savings months

April 3rd, 2011 at 10:03 am

My Savings plan is not working in the last two months because of my overseas trip.

February - $ 685 extra mortgage payment
March - $ 1980 extra mortgage payment

I have spent a lot of money in those two months. I know it sucks...... I need to compensate in the coming months.
