Monthly Budget Results – December 2017

I’m not actually sure anyone is still interested in seeing this (seeing as it’s already January 4th and it’s not super exciting), so I’m going to make it short and sweet. Christmas in Rome did a number on me, but luckily my very generous parents also gifted me close to $500, which is shown in my net worth numbers below. DECEMBER BUDGET RESULTS So it … Continue reading Monthly Budget Results – December 2017

Paying off my first loan in four months!

WEEEEEE It already feels like Christmas…but once a few withdrawals from my matched betting accounts go through hit my account, I am wiping out my smaller loan completely, and then I can partyyyy (snakejuice style).
