Well, I had to go home for a death in the family so the budget took a bit of a hit. Although I have to say I bought a plane ticket with less than 24 hours notice and got it for $400. Not bad. My parents paid for half of it so that worked out.
I also had my dad come over a while back and lower the hot water heater temp. I haven't noticed any difference. Hopefully the dirrerence will show up on the bill! I will also be getting a ceiling fan for my bedroom so I can cut back on the AC at night. I really need a cool/cold room to sleep.
I also upped my 401K contribution from 3% to 4%. Not a huge jump but every little bit helps.
The 403B from the previous job is still doing very nicely. I am up about 6% for the quarter. Still need to get that rolled over to something else.
I went to BJs the other day. I try to stay out of that place as much as possible because it is an easy place to blow the budget. I did find paper towels in bulk. They came out to about .66 a roll which is a good deal so I got them. They also had one of those institutional size containers of clothes detergent for $10. I got that too. I won't have to buy clothes detergent for the rest of the year at least!
I have also decided to use my car fund money differently. Instead of saving for a down payment I am going to use it to fix upmy current car. I have figured that when I buy my next car my payment will be about $500-$600 a month. (partially because of the type of car I want and partially because I only want a 3 yr loan) Anyway, with spending $2000 on repairs I only have to keep my current car for an extra 3-5 months for it to pay off. Actually less if you add in the difference in insurance as well.

    Sorry about your lost. I would love a luxury vehicle but maybe I can save enough to buy a little $5k or so, for a nice little Toyota instead
