This week’s pay stub finally reflected my new pay increase. Okay, it’s only a dollar more than what I was making and though the hours won’t be as consistent as when I was on the floor, I’ve done the math and if everything remains steady I should be fine.
Mike and I are starting to talk about moving in together. It’s something I won’t be able to even think about without saving some money but it is something I’m going to have to figure out by the end of the lease, which is sometime n June. That’s plenty of time to save money and crunch some numbers.
One advantage of changing my life style is that I find my paycheck goes a lot farther when I’m not blowing it on food that isn’t good for me and luxuries I don’t need. In this day and age, I find the Internet to be essential and so paying for the monthly passes is a need, especially since most landlords and homeowners who are renting out properties have an online application of some sort. Even the ones who accept a paper application still use the Internet for credit and background checks.
There are some decent places close by. Mike’s big wish is for a washer and dryer and mine is just for a place that is close enough to work not to have to rent out a mule and a team of Sherpas to get there and back.
We’ll see what the future may bring.
