June 2018 $ Recap

So at the start of June, I was in shambles, monetarily speaking. I had about -$1500 in “soft debt” a term I kinda made up for my specific budgeting method. I have a portion of money going straight from my paycheck to my separate savings accounts. Then I have a small portion going to my checking account.

This is the only account which I constantly monitor.

So when I saw my yearly running total in red, I knew I had to make more and spend less.

The beginning of the month, I had to take a work trip to Philadelphia. So the good news there was that the company would reimburse me for all of my expenses for this 5 day period. Yay less expenses!

Except oops! I fucking missed my 6:30am flight. And due to my cheap ass buying a Comfort Economy ticket from Delta, they wouldn’t let me fly stand by. I had to buy a whole other plane ticket. My one hour of sleep cost me $498.00.

Remember to turn your alarm on LOUD, kids.

I eventually had to move this amount from my Travel Fund to my checking so that when my credit card bill arrived, I had the money to cover it. Thankfully, I had about $700 in there. I was really hoping to use it for fun stuff, not mistake stuff, but c’est la vie.

I also, for some reason, didn’t move my roommates rent from Venmo to my account last month, so this month there are 2 Venmo entries. Hey, as long as it all balances out at the end of the year, I’m a happy camper.

The reimbursement check from the Philly trip was what boosted my account this month. Trying to see how this will play out in July…

I also went on a spontaneous trip to Chattanooga, TN with some friends. I totaled the amount spent on my credit card and moved that amount from Travel Fund to checking as well. ($119.91)

An overall positive for the month.
