Almost There

In a mere five weeks, I will finally have my car paid off.  Three years and three months after I bought it.  I love my car but having a car payment got old QUICKLY.  Needless to say, I want to pay for the next one with cash.  After the car is paid off, I will boost the slush fund (used to pay for unexpected expenses).  Then I will restart my IRA contributions as well as start saving for the next car.

We have a few trips planned (both business and pleasure) over the next few months so I need to be careful not to go overboard.  I’m also realizing that there a few things that will be convenient now that I’ve started running.  I want some earphones that wrap behind the ear since the earbuds I have fall out when I run.  Also, I want some type of armband or pouch to hold my iPod.  Mr. Savvy and I registered for a 5k in June so that’s a running expense as well.  We won’t even talk about the cost of Mr. Savvy’s newfound hobby, road racing (bicycling).  He plans to do the Tour de Cure later this month and has been some items to prepare for that.

All in all, we’re making progress albeit slowly.  We’ve also got some other stuff going on so things should smooth out in the next month or so.  What’s new with you guys?
