March Savings

Goodbye March! If I seem a little excited, it’s because I just completed my first week of work in 4.5 months and that means my next paycheck will be a full paycheck.  Goodbye disability and hello 401k contribution eligibility!  So let’s check in on my spending for my last month home (hopefully until retirement… or maternity leave!)

  • Groceries: $14.17
  • Eating out: $49.65
  • Gas: -$9
  • Natural gas: $32.32
  • Electric: $6.66
  • Mortgage overpayment: $100

This is a total savings of $193.80 and $3,308.88 over seven months.  All of that savings goes right into medical bills.

I also indicated that I would update how I am doing on my net worth goal of increasing it by $50,000 this year.  Well, I have increased my net worth by $8,172 which is nothing short of awesome in three months.

To comment on my gas use, this is high due to driving 70 miles a day to radiation appointments.  I expect it to be back on track now.

March also had me making my last payment on a 0% remodel loan I took out two years ago.  It’s a great feeling to pay off a debt!

About His Polish Princess

I'm an engineer by day and an entrepreneur by night. I live with my Old Man, and our cat, Junior. Okay, so the cat is mine, not ours. I have some old fashioned opinions and I believe the unlikely can be achieved with hard work and a little bit of luck. I like cars and motorcycles and remodeling houses and taking risks. I love my family and my community in Small Town, USA. I believe life is one grand adventure that should be lived and thoroughly enjoyed. In 2013 I was diagnosed with an autoimmune disease and focused on natural healing. Fortunately, my disease has been in remission since 2014. In 2015 I was diagnosed with Hodgkin's Lymphoma. These things are just a road bump in life. They won't stop me from remodeling or buying houses or starting new ventures. Life is all about how you see it.
