September is almost gone and October is right around the corner.
Here’s how I did for September:
1) side hustle – 95%
eh… not the best, but really this was my first month at trying to make any money on the side. So, with that in mind I am not disappointed. I sold an order on Etsy, which just made me do a happy dance. I joined Elance and had one completed job that I got paid for. With two success I would give this a 95%. I had hopes of making more, but I will take it.
2) purchase the big items for our favors – PASS
Our favor items have been purchased and now we move on to the next project. It was such a relief the night J and I went to multiple stores to buy all the different pieces we were looking for.
3) pay $200 towards our smallest debt – FAIL
We…er…I miscalculated our emergency fund total and that $200 went in there. Now we are on track for next month and we will kick butt on paying off some debt.
4) fund our emergency fund all the way – PASS
It is such a good feeling to know that we are covered for any unexpected events. We do not have to stress if the car breaks or freak out over an unexpected bill. This makes me a lot calmer and probably nicer to be around.
5) knock out ¼ of the remaining Dave Ramsey Videos – PASS
We do not have that many videos left and we are ahead of schedule. I think I am learning too much, if that’s even possible. Sometimes I like to quote Dave Ramsey and J is not amused with me, especially when we are in public. I like to think I am passing around useful information to those around us, but he does not see it that way.
1) Get everything in order for our wedding in ONE month – CRAZY!
2) Book a few more side hustle jobs
3) Pay $200 towards our smallest debt
4) Take the dogs for more walks
5) Finish the Dave Ramsey videos
We are getting married in one month and two days. Just seems crazy that my life is where it is. I am so excited for our future together and the years that we have ahead of us. I think we are in a good place and ready for this step. It’s just crazy!
