And the balance is ....

27 cents. That's how much is in the checking account right now. Payday is Friday, so there can be no spending of any sort tomorrow. None. The bright side of this news is that there is 27 cents. It's not a negative balance. I don't need anything crucial that can't wait until Friday. We're out of apples and bananas, but my gang will have to get over it. They can eat what we have and be happy that there is still enough in the pantry and freezer to keep them well fed. I'm under budget on groceries for July, even though I'm way over budget in other areas since Murphy decided to vacation here.

August is just around the corner. And with it will be a fresh start. I'm ready.

  3. You are doing great. It doesnt matter how much is in there as long as it isn't a negative. You will make it to payday with money to spare.

    As long as we all keep supporting each other each month is going to get better and better
