As a reminder, I run a zero based budget, which means that every penny of the paycheck has a home. I don't run a zero-based checking acount, however. I have an $800 cushion in there, I just pretend it isn't there. This week neither DD or I have spending money budgeted for because we both made game purchases. The same will be true for next payday. We did both have the money saved for it, but couldn't make it to the credit union at the time we charged them, due to illness and DH being too busy with work to run there during open hours. I decided it would be easier to charge it and then just pay it back over the next two paychecks. No interest will incur.
As for the Citi card, we are still paying back some of the paycheck and then most of the adjustable bed frame we bought for DD. So no EF contributions this week. I also cut the household envelope as I have enough money in there for now and the same with the car maintenance envelope as there is over $1000 in there. That money went to the Citi card as well. We are still paying off that month of take out, but due to the closing period we've paid off the card for that time period without interest. Some of the next paycheck will go towards that, too. I will be working on the next billing cycle early, but I just want it gone again. As of this week I am functionally able to cook again with some help with the fetch and carry of ingredients. It is never good when the main cook goes down as you can see from how much we've been paying Citi because of it.
