This week I earned $50 from staff writing/virtual assistant/advertising. We now have $1196.29 saved for September expenses, which is quite good. I am also waiting on some other payments, so I am hoping those will come in before August draws to a close. My luck on Craigslist seems to have been beginner’s luck as the items I have on there now have gotten no response. I will keep trying though.
Also, a few weeks back I wrote that we would have to pay out of pocket for my husband’s trip to Washington D.C. The registration for the conference alone was almost $500!!, which we could not handle. He talked to his advisor who reassured him that he will be reimbursed for nearly all of his conference expenses. What a relief! We will still be on our own paying for the conference he needs to attend in Montreal in the late fall, so the money I was earmarking for Washington D.C. will now be earmarked for Montreal instead. After these two trips, I look forward to a blissfully quiet winter when we don’t have to travel at all.
