Good news, I received a 5% raise yesterday at work. And further good news is that the raise is retroactive for a few months. Whoo-hoo!
So, since today is pay day for me, I received my newly increased paycheck via direct deposit and a check for the retroactive pay. Eyeing that retroactive pay, we could use it towards funding our 2012 IRAs or towards paying down our mortgage. We are behind on both of these 2012 savings goals (behind $2371 in funding our IRA, and behind $1461). Or we could put it towards expenses related to turning Rental #3 (which Mr. Sam is working on as we speak).
But, what I really want to do is put it towards the art work that I've been saving for since Memorial Day.
What would you do, put it towards 2012 saving goals, put it towards current rental related expenses or spend it on something fun? As an aside, I already have $110 in my art account so I only have $515 to go before I have sufficient funds to purchase. This piece of art would be my Christmas present to myself from myself and Mr. Sam.
