Whew! I think I’m finally in a good spot with my money after paying my bills, credit cards (for shame!) and transferring savings for the month. The $340 left in my checking account is the rest of the money I have for April. It doesn’t seem like that much, but I plan to live very frugal this month and all of my big expenses (aka: PLANE TICKET!) have been taken care of. Saving progress bars are updated to the side… yay! The Emergency Fund is well on it’s way!
