Bills are all paid, but there's not much left...

in the checking account until the next payday on May 9th.  Oh well, at least I have plenty of food and the gas tank is full.  Shouldn't have too many expenses between now and then.  I'm actually looking forward to seeing what my bills look like for next month.  Several of them should be going down.  My insurance premium and my mortgage payment should have fairly significant reductions.  Woohoo!  And I have some extra money coming in as well.  I love it when that happens.  I was first thinking that I'd put it toward my car loan, but I think I will actually put this extra money in my savings for now, I need to bulk that back up after making my loan payment to my parents.  I have items selling on eBay right now as well so that should help beef up the savings account as well.  Not too much else going on around here, finally getting some nice weather and getting out and enjoying that.  Hope all is well in your world...

Annual loan payment made...

Yay!  I've made my 7th of 10 annual loan payments to my parents.  Woohoo!  Only 3 more payments left.  While it's hard to take that money out of my savings each April to make my loan payment, it feels so good to see the balance to them drastically reduce.  I've set up my direct deposit from work to put this money away throughout the year so that I can always have the money there when the payment is due, but it'll be so nice in 3 more years to not have to deplete the savings to make the payment.  I've also recently sold several items on eBay and have made a fair amount, not to mention cleaning out clutter.  Love that feeling! 

Other than that, not too much going on around here, just enjoying the nicer weather we are starting to have.  It's great to finally be able to turn the heat down and know I'm saving money there too.  I hope you're all having a fabulous spring and enjoying the weather.
