I was so happy when I did up my budget, and paid everything off. I paid all my bills, put $340.00 away for my car insurance, $100.00 for savings for the time being. I still have my two pay cheques from my seasonal job to cash (should be ready this weekend), then another one after that but Im not sure when I will get it. I will most likely have to get groceries and gas again this month near the end of the month the brats will need food as well, but its closer to payday. Marco needs veggies tomorrow night, but I,m trying to selling things I wont be using to get some cash, and set it aside. But his hay huts he has enough for a few months now. Im hoping to put all of my cheque from my seasonal in savings or at least majority of them away. I try to put more money into savings as I get moree interest from that account rather than it sitting in my chequing account. Im trying to use all my online earnings to buy at least half of the brats food so it saves me a lot more money.

That is awesome that you have that much extra money in your budget. For us, we've really been struggling for the last several months. The reason that we've been struggling is because of the fact that my husband still has a lot of medical bills that we have to pay and that is something that has put a major hurting on us. However, we are selling some things that we don't need any more and that is going to help us out. In addition to that, I will be getting a settlement at some point in the near future as a result of the car accident that I was involved in back in July.

You do well at managing your money and it will make it easier for you to have a place of your own. You have already practiced being responsible with your bills. That is a good sum to have as we are ending the summer season.
