Total Tally Tuesday: Checking Account Balances!

Every Tuesday, we'll report exactly how much our families have in their checking accounts -- and what they're planning to do with it.

Best laid plans...  I'd hoped to leave at least $300 in my account. This past week however, my computer completely fried itself - and I have a major paper due in 3 days - so I've had to take care of that. Plus, my car is getting work done. Without the car, I quite literally wouldn't be able to get to work since public transit won't get me there from where I live. On the flip side, I'm incredibly grateful to have a job so that I can take care of these things, as well as contacts and friends that are helping me keep the costs as low as possible.

Leah: $3036.57

It was my birthday this week so I am getting treated to a prenatal massage! I’m really excited for that.  As of right now, the rent and my IRA contribution has been paid.  I still have to pay the bills for the first half of the month.
