I began the month with $142 in my checking account, $35 in my wallet, half a tank of gas in the car and a little bit less than that much in my truck. I topped up the car, added $25 worth to my truck just a head of the big price surge and prepared for what was to come. On the fifth I paid all of the utility bills as well as the mortgage a month ahead of schedule. My next check was used to pay all of April's expenses, add more items to our prepper pantry, pick up a new pair of summer sandals and the rest went into savings. I am very blessed to be sitting in a good spot financially at the moment.
April is going to be very different and extremely exciting. I will share more about what I have planned very soon. So many changes up ahead. My daughter will be graduating from high school in May and within a few months heading off to college. My oldest daughter has a lot of changes ahead of her too. I am preparing ahead for as much of it as possible.
One thing I am going to tell you right now is that I'm challenging myself to a no spend month which is why I decided to pay the April bills ahead of time. Lord willing, I'm seriously planning a NO SPEND month! That will go hand in hand for a lot of other things I've got planned as well so I hope you'll hang around for what is to come.
