Good news for me

May 22nd, 2008 at 08:07 am

My friend managed to get a contract job for about 2 weeks. This means $600 less dollars I need to give her. WooHoo! She has also been doing a good job of staying within budget which is better than I did with my first budget. We will probably do a quick talk about next month's budget this weekend since I should deposit the money into her account then anyways.

She has the budget printed out and on her frig so she won't go over so she is definitely committing to this whole budgeting thing. Its still difficult for her to imagine a budget that actually covers everything but time will help with that (her previous concept of a budget had no place for groceries, gas or personal expenditures, not very useful).

Now I just have to wait impatiently until next month for my next debt payoffs. I hate waiting...

    Oh thanks, I have had a lot of help in my life and I feel that I owe the universe a lot for that. I also didn't want to watch yet another friend fail to get on her feet. She had already wasted a year in Michigan with no job prospects other than retail before she moved out here. She has racked up nearly 8 months worth of experience out here so the longer she sticks with it, the easier it will be for her to get work (graphic designer so experience is key and what you get hired on, not college education).
