Not what I had hoped for AT ALL.
Only $500 to the RV fund this month. Sigh. Of course it’s better than no contribution at all or, even worse – having to take money out. Taking out is most certainly what I would have done if not for our surprise bonus checks we received right before Christmas.
December expenses included tuition (hopefully the last time I’ll have to pay for school), a new top for the car, and a crown for yet another broken tooth.
The tally is an unbelievable 12 trips to the dentist for 2010!!! Surely I will get some relief from this expense soon. (Not that soon though since there is another dental issue – an infection – that I really need to address in January). So if I can manage to stay out of the dentist’s chair and am truly finished with tuition expenses, 2011 should be a much better year for savings. Plus I’ll have both a doctorate and a nice smile to show for it!
Once again, sadly, none of this money translated into one single moment of happiness. That’s the hard part about being a grown-up, I guess.
Oh well, next month is sure to be an improvement …
