@ThatJenn Congrats on the new puppy! I know how it is. Sometimes you just end up with a puppy on your lap. Also, congrats on having a great money month!
@jennonthego It sounds like it is worth it. Sometimes we gotta do these things.
I skipped last month's check in since so many things were in the air. February was a good month for money, I did have two major expenses (two big birthdays) though. Everything sort of stayed the same or moved up a tiny bit. I should see more progress this month. Hoping my tax refund will help me meet my e-fund goal a bit earlier. Vacation fund/Regular Savings January 2015 $574 March 2015 $670 E-fund [May 2015 goal: $5000] January 2015 $2052 March 2015 $2582 Roth IRA fund [Goal: $1000] January 2015 $150 March 2015 $276 Capital One CC January 2015 $0 March 2015 $255 [to be paid on the 15th]
@CJ Cregg Yay!!! Congrats on almost meeting your goal!
@jennknee It all starts somewhere!
Norway! One of my favorite countries. I never go completely basic, always one above that. Also, Norway is expensive (don't forget to get your Oslo pass!) so don't go too high on airfare.For Norwegian, I always go Basic+ because of the seat reservation and meal option.
I have Geico's renters insurance and while I haven't had to use it (knock on wood!), I've had a great experience with them in general via my car insurance.
@roboticllama Oh Japan travel fund! That's going to be awesome.
My one thing this weekend is clean the house and donate clothes!
@moreadventurous Ally is great! I've had it for two years now and I've never had a problem. I keep a little cushion at my regular bank savings for last minute emergencies and use Ally for my e-fund. Sometimes I'll charge something and immediately pay it with my e-fund.
