April was another up and down month. A couple of unexpected major expenses that I put on a card blew out my otherwise good progress.
It turns out the moving company hadn't charged me, so that was $450 I wasn't expecting, and then my ancient vacuum cleaner blew up the week before my rental inspection, so I decided to invest in a decent one that will last me a while and was on special for $449. I just couldn't bear to use my emergency fund now I’d got it back to over $1000, and even added $200 to it this month.
I'm under $59,000 at least which I'm happy about, so still some downwards activity overall.
I've got rego, pink slip and green slip to pay this month, so it’s going to be a stretch but I think I’ll be OK.
Roll on payday.
