$2,000? You’re kidding me!

Man, it feels good! It is the 18th of the month, and I am feeling pretty good about life.
I have $391 left in my “spending account” – My ING account that all of my day-to-day purchases go through.
I have $1,126.50 in my Emergency Fund.
I have $80 in my Yearly Savings fund – my savings account for expenses that happen once a year, so I can save up a little each month for them.
I have $154.22 in my “Fun Fund” – this account is for gifts or entertainment or clothes. I fund it with the tutoring I do on the side.
And $245.79 in my Bill Paying account – AFTER paying all my bills but my $60 cell.
So all told in the bank I have an incredible $1,997.51 in all my accounts!
Let me just tell you something – a year ago I never would have thought this possible. Sure, $2k doesn’t sound that exciting. But I’ve had months where by the 15th of the month I have $14 total (savings and all!) to my name (this number was originally $25, but after MPPs post, I felt bad and had to change it). So having close to $2,000 available. That is something.
All of this AFTER I just made an EXTRA $75 payment to my credit card two days ago.
I’m just overjoyed. Every day I feel like I’m getting closer and closer to being financially free – and I’m excited beyond all belief about it!
(Also, this is my 300th blog post! Wow how time flies!)
