After my post a bit ago about my crappy car, I decided that I needed to start saving for a new to us vehicle. This might not be for me but for my husband. He drives a 2001 Ford F-150 and it has held up well but its aging. I started it this month and we have $1587 so far in it. This is where the money came from:
$200 from last paychecks
$25 from recycling aluminum cans
$1162 from hail payout for Y's pick-up
$200 from my work expense reimbursement
My car loan sits at $6600 and is 0%. It should be down to $5000 by year end. Having this car fund will give me piece of mind that we could pay that off if things get too tight with paying for daycare for two.
Speaking of daycare, I somehow missed signing up Lil Punk for preschool this year. I don't know how I missed it. She goes to a church daycare that also has a preschool and school. I will call the daycare director tomorrow to see if they can still fit her in. I plan to have her start school next year so I would like it if she was in preschool this year. She turns 5 next July so she will just make the deadline. I know I could wait to send her but I was held back due to an August birthday and I was bored in school. I easily could have went the year before.
Have you kids all done preschool? Is it absolutely necessary?
