Ever since I made the first post here, I’ve been tucking away a dollar here and there to save up for my own website. I’ve been putting it in its own budget category and it’s been like a little pet that I’ve nurtured. Today I decided to put that money into our Money Game fund instead. I’m not robbing Peter to pay Paul as Peter doesn’t really need it. Having my own domain for this blog isn’t a need.
This month has been different. George’s pay cycle has changed from weekly to monthly. (Warning! First world problem discussion is coming.) That has meant a month of no paydays. It’s also meant that months of extra paydays are gone. It’s also meant that I can now budget for exact monthly amounts for things like our phone bill and our cable bill. I used to post his paycheck each week and go through all the categories that came under transferring the extra to our Money Game fund.
This game is constantly shifting just like a video game rewards you with a new challenge every time you beat a level. Video games often let you build a reserve of extra lives or power to help get you through a challenge.
I’m claiming this extra level today! Amount deposited: $109.22 Now if I could talk myself into coloring my own hair … that would free up some serious money each month!
Level Completed: 127 out of 251
Amount Deposited This Month: $734.10
Total Balance: $2,458.73
I need $118.78 to get to the next level.
Our Money Game fund has increased 42.6% so far this month.
Have fun, grow money and level
