1. have set up a mint.com account for myself (and the manfriend if he so wishes) and will begin funneling all my finance info into that thing and begin understanding the tool.
3. have created a budget for the manfriend and I (ex. 30% to mortgage, 30% to bills, 10% to groceries, 20% to savings, 10% fun). Our budgets don't have to follow the same amounts or areas, but will be focused on what each of us needs to put $ toward.
That's right, I finished my taxes! It was surprisingly easy to do online (I usually go the paper route) and I was able to file my federal and state taxes for free. I also have determined what my refund will go toward before it hops into my bank account. No sense letting it sit there to be spent!
The manfriend and I also worked a bit on #3 and have a better vision for where we're headed. It makes me feel so much better. I think we're both sleeping better already.
A few fun things around the blogosphere:
Boston Qualifying standards get tougher (there goes my chance to BQ)!
Buying a townhouse at 22!
My latest fashion crush How can you not love that hair and those silver Tom's?
Have fabulous hair by NOT washing it!
How does a week in Paris for your 30th bday sound?!
Coming up: How I'm going to get my rear in gear and train for that tri and 20 mile trail race. Um, yeah. I'm trying to remind myself I prefer to be totally prepared for races, but it's a bit tough when the weather just turned to crap and these things require some serious time outside.
