Easter budgeting

Now is the time to start planning for Easter / Spring break . Are you cooking a big meal ? Are you doing baskets ? Are you going on vacation ? Do you have any budgeting tips to share ? Our vacation is paid for and that is as far as I have got. I am thinking of using beach pail’s for baskets this year. We are leaving for the beach the next day . I think that is cheaper then baskets and a fun alternative. So, what are you doing ?

My employer offered advances to any employee

who needed to be tided over, as well as covering any over the limit or fees etc.

Paychex are NOT good at payroll!

I have the money so the LooLoo Diva will be on the plane at 7am tomorrow morning and I (and the goof troop) can breathe and sign of relief and start singing “happy days are here again……..”

Need shed roof fixed

I have been a lurker for a long time but have recently started following the Dave Ramsey program. I sure wish that I had started a lot earlier.
My dilemma is this we have $2000.00 in our emergency fund. Our driving shed roof desperately needs to be repaired and it cannot be put off any longer. It will likely be around $10,000.00 to get fixed. I know Mike does not suggest borrowing, but does anyone have any suggestions or maybe you know this company they offer payday loans for bad credit the same day! Any thoughts?

Sometimes the way is not easy or bump free..

Toddled off to the vet to get LooLoo’s health certificate and updated rabies shot and lo and behold, my card declined.

Checked with the bank, no direct deposit. Luckily my vet accepted a check while I scurried around in a panic.

Turns out payroll hasn’t run and will only clear on Monday, possibly Tuesday.

In the meantime, I have to get the money together to buy a kennel and pay for LooLoo’s flight.

The new owner sent funds via Paypal, but they haven’t made it into my bank account as yet, according to the bank, they will show up tomorrow. I’m going to call to MAKE SURE the funds will be there since I have to pay for LooLoo’s flight at 6am.
