Good things

August 21st, 2006 at 06:11 pm

Thanks to good advice on this site, I moved some money around this weekend. Depleted a $600 taxable mutual fund account to put the money in my Roth IRA. I will not come near maxing it this year, and am glad I'm not going to pay taxes on this money for the next 40 years.

Also got to see my dad this weekend(yay!) and he gave me some money (also yay!).

I'm trying to decide what to do with it. It isn't a whole lot, but it's enough to make a pretty significant dent in my remaining credit card. Of course, I have, like, no money right now, because I just started a new job and won't get paid for a couple weeks. I'll probably use it just for expenses and stuff I need until I get paid, at which point I can put what remains on my credit card.

I want to save a little, too, for the Ren Faire coming up. I know it's an irresponsible expense given that I'm not out of debt. Still, I am going to go ($20 plus $30 either gas or bus fare) and I really, really want to buy something pretty.

We'll see. I don't even know what my take-home pay's going to be. Once I know that, it'll be easier to budget, and if I can make a couple spending cuts to buy myself something pretty at the Ren Faire, that's something I can do.
