August is one of those rare months in which I receive three pay checks. I had said that I planned on saving the entirity of my third pay check in my “cash and savings” account. I have since changed my mind. Instead, I am allowing myself to spend an extra $600 in August on a few things:
- $150 – Personal Hobby
- $100 – Amazon Prime renewal (?)
- $250 – Clothing & Personal
- $100 – Wedding Gift
The only thing that is questionable is the Amazon prime renewal. If I see the need for it during August, I’ll go ahead and renew it, if not, I will let the subscription lapse and renew when I next deem it necessary. I have an inkling getting rid of Amazon prime may do me more good than harm, but with free same day shipping in my city it’s really a good bargain especially since i don’t have a car. We will see. If I don’t need Amazon prime during August, chances are I really don’t need it at all.
I anticipate earning at least an extra $100 this month.
