On Let’s Throw Some Money at Our Problems: April 2015 Check-in

Ah, last month was a MESS, but this month was a tiny bit better. I had a lot of last minute emergencies. We finally went back to being a two income household thought so I'm almost back on track. May should be a lot better for me. We also started using our travel credit card again since we are going abroad later this year! I'll include that on the next check-in. Vacation fund March 2015 $665 April 2015 $408 E-fund [Goal: $5000] March 2015 $3318 April 2015 $3196 Credit Card March 2015 $189 April 2015 $140 [paid off by 5/15]

@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]

On Survey: Does It Always Make Sense to Go for the Lowest Fare?

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.

On Deciding to Buy Renters Insurance

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.
