August Was Expensive! Plus a few Updates

Failure to plan properly cost me dearly.  I had some bills come up that I was not expecting until Sept or October and since I did not plan properly, I had to dip in to my Efund to cover them.  I had a home insurance payment that I was not expecting to be so high, but I neglected to read the fine print on the last bill that stated the company for future billing,  they would bill you either twice a year or once a year. In the past two years, the payments were spread over three invoices and I was not expecting to have to pay sooo much. So be it,  shame on me for not reading the fine print.  The other unexpected bill was my mobile bill. I've been using my phone a lot more these past few months, so much so that I keep getting hit with outrageous overage charges.  I did the adult thing, reviewed my bills for the past 5 months, went to the web site, reviewed other plan options and found a new plan that should cover the minutes I've been using. It's $39 per month instead of $23 per month, but since my last 4 bills have all been over $50, I think this should help me out budget wise, especially since I know I'll be using the phone a lot over the next two months. I had some fun to me time, that while not exceptionally expensive did cost me some $$$. I signed up for a friends and family plan that gives me unlimited mintues to select numbers which will be very helpful since I pretty much only call the same 6 people time and time again.

The good news for me is I will be picking up more weekends at my weekend job. I caught up face to face with my weekend boss and we discussed the work situation.  He has still not heard from my co-worker aobut her inpending surgery, but has heard about it from everyone else.  Pretty much, I'm going to just drop back in to my old schedule as soon as she is off on her medical leave.  My co-worker just has to tell me when she will be unable to work and I slide back into the old routine.  Which is good, I have to replenish my E-Fund and I want to build back up a cushion in my checking account.

I'm continuing on my scan fest.  My initial zest wore off, but every few days I scan a pile of papers, then shread them.  My filing cabinets are getting nice and empty!

Glad that you are going to have your phone bill more in control. It's always best to re-evaluate your phone plan instead of incurring overage month after month. So good job! And I hate the fine print! Especially when they add something like that, where your bill is affected. No fun.

I'm working on ScanFest too! My printer came yesterday and I've been piling the papers into a bag steadily.
