It’s December 1, 2016 as of writing. I have 150 pesos in my wallet but a few thousands should be in my Paypal account in a couple of days. I hope that the money arrives before the weekend because I really want to go watch Moana in the movies with Leroy and do some grocery shopping too.
The thing is, I should have more than enough but Its Jeff’s 29th birthday on the 7th and mom’s death anniversary on the 10th and that means I will be spending money. I honestly don’t mind. I don’t mind spending for the people I loved and cared except that it is December and that there are “seasonal” and “necessary” expense that are unavoidable.
So, here is what my finances look like over the weekend:
Income from fulltime job: 13,000 Pesos
Income from parttime Job: 12,000 Pesos
Income from one time job: 2,400 Pesos
TOTAL: 27,400 Pesos
My expenses for December 1 to 15:
Petty Cash Loan (including interest) 4,000
Appliance Loan 5,500
Electric (estimate) 2,000
Leroy’s Tuition 1,500
Jeff’s Bday 2,500
Mom’s Death Anniversary 3,500
Gift for Leroy’s X-mas Party and donation 1,500
Food (200 per day X 15) 3,000
Leroy’s school snack 500
Movie, new socks and fare 1,500
TOTAL: 27,500 Pesos
See the problem there? I though I will have enough to buy Leroy a new shoe before the party. Good thing he has an outfit already that I bought in Baclaran when I was in Pasig last month.
I will have to be very careful if I want to survive till next paycheck.
I am currently living paycheck to paycheck but it’s OK. I am very optimistic for some reason. I know that 2017 will be my best year yet and I like to think that 2016 is just as successful.
I will have more updates over the weekend after I do my groceries.
