Basically a series of events has made things uncomfortably tight. I should be fine, but having an extra $1,000 or so would make me feel more comfortable. Here is where I stand:
- $1,830 in cash in bank accounts
- -$1,300 in credit card bills
- -$1,650 in rent due next month
To be fair, I have $2,375 in my bank accounts that aren’t included in the above figures, but it’s not mine. I’ve been trying to not dip into it but it’s obvious I will have to. Income that’s coming in any day now.
- $1,500 paycheck
- $470 FSA reimbursement
- $300 reimbursement #1
- $600 reimbursement #2
- $200 reimbursement #3
- $700 state tax refund
- $260 owed to me from my mom (unexpected)
I should have ~$2,900 cash by the end of next month but with my trip coming up and being out of town, I’m not entirely sure.
I did open up a new credit card with 0% APR for the next 15 months, so that’ll help soften the blow.
