NT's bonus! and money to savings

December 15th, 2016 at 09:58 am

It was a big'un this year: $7000, of which we netted $4530 after taxes and 401(k)!

We came to an easy agreement on how to use it:
- $450 tip for our daycare providers
- $550 to make up our shared spending money deficit (AS's checks are still slow to come in)
- $200 to get gift cards from our fave pizza place (they have an offer where you get $125 worth for $100, so we'll end up with $250 of gift cards)
- $150 each for fun money ($450 total)
- $800 to partly pay for the CSA shares we prepaid
- $80 for some needed winter gear for AS
- $2000 toward a bathroom renovation

In addition to the $2K toward US renovation savings, NT's rental income hit the UK checking account and I put 400 pounds ($500) into our emergency fund (we're 1/3 of our way to the $10K EF goal!). So now our savings stand at:

US (renovation fund): $8,950
UK (emergency fund): $3,312.50

Total savings: $12,262.50

    I've always worked for nonprofits. It only makes me sad when I hear about other people's bonuses!

    CB - Government workers don't get bonuses either. Smile
    Ceejay - Nice bonus! I'd probably be tempted to use a bit more of it for fun things. Smile though I'd probably end up doing something more like what you all are doing. Smile
