Roller coaster eye opener

January 19th, 2009 at 08:22 am

Yes, I need to track my money better. I have been working on financial forms for my husband, so he can get everything together to start the business with my BIL. One year we made $120K, the next we took a bit hit and it was about $70. The next, back to $105, the next two around $85. This past year?? $45. Yikes. I wasn't sure how it would wash out, but no wonder we are scrambling. It was a bit perplexing that we really cut back this year, I just did'nt realize, it should have been WWWWAAAAAAYYYYYY back. My mentality is still too paycheck to paycheck. DH keeps swearing he is going to take over the bill payment. I hope this comes true soon!

    Wow Kath...even in a good year, $45k would be a tough number to cut back to. But this year, with gas prices hitting an all time high and the whole economic situation...I am scratching my head on how you made it...I wish you the very best this next year!

    Wow, those are some fluctuations. It sounds like that explains a lot for you.

    I was looking at my SS statement yesterday, and thought I had some big fluctuations - but nothing like a nearly 50% drop - yikes! I hope that this coming years numbers are an upswing!
