hi ladies... im not new to cm... just here in the group... and i want to save atleast 2000 by next year for vacation. when i get my taxes i NEED a new car.. mine is on its last leg and we are moving into a new apt in town... so that will cost a little money... whatever i can (im hoping 500-1000) will go into the vaca fund...
im a single mom, at the moment i get 0 cs (DEAD BEAT POS DAD) and i pay out of pocket (700/mo) for child care. my monthly bills add up to about 15-1600 and my take home is 1700ish a month :( im trying to cut back cuz i really want to go and have a great time....
cable/internet- 10/mo (i work for the comp lol yesss employee discounts)
gas- 200/mo at most
car ins- 65
energy bill- 65
food/household needs- 200 and that includes eating out/toiletries
rent 255 (roommate thats why things are cheaper)
any ideas? is this possible?
