I am not loving the homework I have to do, but I am loving the amount of money that will be flowing to my savings account soon. The next two weeks will be the most financially active for me for the entire year. Soon progress will slow significantly, but I’m going to enjoy it while it’s here.
Today is payday. At the beginning of next week I have a bunch of GICs that mature. I still haven’t rolled what was left of December’s budget to savings because I didn’t have a lot of cash in my account after paying tuition, so I will roll that money over then. Then at the end of the month I will roll over whatever is left in January’s budget. Then things will quiet down.
For now I got paid for that work I did over the holidays, and now I have another $1,000 to roll over. Another $750 goes in the TFSA. The other $250 temporarily goes to savings for taxes. Super boring, I know. But I’m now happy with the $500 tucked away for tax time and I will hopefully soon have another $250 that can be allocated to more exciting purposes.
