Well it turns out I didn't have as much as I thought I did in the next check to pay off my new camera. It's okay though I'll just do it in two payments it won't be due until the end of this month anyway.

Other than that no hickups in the plan. Still putting money away paying off loans etc. Looks like I'll be employed til Feb. The goal is to save up another months worth of expenses and send more extra payments to the car.

Jan is a wash due to the new toy but Feb should be good maybe after all this there will be another job. One can only be hopeful!

    I spent many thousands on a Nikon digital camera several years ago, and I don't regret it. It actually paid for itself. I used to to take photos for some of the articles I was writing, and I got paid for those. I also managed to sell a group of photos and a story to an interior design magazine-- and they paid $750 just for the pics! Maybe there is a way you can earn some $$ off of your camera?

    I'm not a pro I barely know how to use the camera as of right now will sign up for the classes soon. Frown Plus the camera is less than a $1000. It was on sale because a new model is coming out. I just feel bad because I have to make two payments instead of the one.

    I should have planned better. I guess I'm also feeling guilty because I bought something for myself. And I don't let myself do that. And then I feel bad when I do and then feel bad that I don't allow myself to buy things not even clothes. I sometimes get nice meals if they are less than $20 but that's not often either. My husband tells me I should let myself buy things everyone once in a while but I don't. I am happy with the camera I'm enjoying it but now I'm feeling slightly bad that I didn't save the money now that I'm sick and losing hours. Guess I should have had the money to begin with but I thought I did that there was going to be enough in the next check.

    Lesson learned. Yes I can afford it but I should have had the cash on hand first. No interest will kick in though. My bills are paid for both this and the next month. And I have a decent amount of savings. There is a chance I'm being just a bit too hard on myself here.
