Another week and another paycheck. This week looks a lot better than last week.

Paycheck: $280.65

Here’s my budget for it:

Joint: $160

Gasoline: $40

Savings: $20

Food: $15

Credit Card: $15

Net Income: $47.21

I get to keep more into my checking account this week.  I’m trying to build a buffer into my checking account, as I am considering cutting back my hours. I haven’t made a final decision; I’m just going to see how the semester rolls out. I want to finish on a high note and I feel that a slightly smaller paycheck is acceptable if it comes to that scenario.
