CC Progess, Life On Four Days A Week

July 11th, 2019 at 10:44 pm

As of Thursday 12th July, my Virgin card was $1962 and my NAB card was $1430. I’m thinking next week of paying $31 onto the NAB card to bring it below $1400 and into the $1300’s 😁.

I probably should transfer money to our holiday savings for UK 🇬🇧 next year. I’m thinking in the next day or so to put $30 towards it, then we’ll have $1230.

In terms of the home renovations we are looking at doing some painting over the weekend. The renovations are moving along gradually, will be nice once everything is back to normal.

As of last week I started working 4 days a week. I also started the bookkeeping course - am still doing the pre-commencement stuff. Last week I set up the study as a workspace (this room was generally our storage room and full of junk) and had to do a welcome call with the training organisation where they walked me through the course and people to speak to and other things the organisation offers. They advised me that before I start the course I have to do three preliminary assessments which is what I spent a big chunk of today doing.

It’s been nice on the Friday to have a bit of a sleep in but as the goal is to gain some skills in my income earning area and possibly self-employment I have been pretty disciplined in working towards this. I have been pretty good allocating 9am-3pm towards working towards this. I say 9-3 because for me this is a really nice work/life balance and a bit of a reward for a Friday afternoon.

My boss changed my pay to pro-rata so now I am on four days wages but I have also received a 1.3% pay rise so I only receive $587 less per month. I decided that to lessen the blow towards us in the meantime I will save $250 less towards my car per month and spend $250 less per month.

He also gave me a $327 bonus which is great and I have added it to the laptop fund. So far I now have $400 which is a good start.

Wishing that everyone has a great weekend!
