It feels like it’s been ages since we last talked! As you might recall, this new work program we’re launching was supposed to be standing by the end of July, and while it was, we’re very much still testing it now… so work’s been fast and furious!
Meanwhile, I’ve gotten a
second job side hustle! As of this week, I started driving for Uber after work. I think I really like it and I’m making decent money. More about this to come.
And before Michael left to go back to NOLA on Wednesday, we found me a new apartment! But you thought the house/roommate situation was working out nicely? It hasn’t been bad. But remember, it’s $300/mo more than what I was expecting, and well, that’s a lot of money! I’m moving to a new more reasonably priced apartment on Sept 1, thankfully.
All this to say, a lot has been going on.
But now, down to the nitty gritty!
July finances are totally haywire, as I knew they would be. When Michael was told he no longer qualified for student loans, we made the decision to take out a lump sum loan to cover his tuition for his remaining three semesters. So, I have this extra money sitting around in my savings, you’ll notice. It’s okay. I’m not worried.
We also paid off two massive credit cards and a loan, and my emergency savings is finally gaining some traction, so I’m feeling good about that. Yep, other than that new loan, every single one of my debt balances went down. First time in a while. I’m pretty proud of myself.
How was your July? Any wacky money things happening?
