ouch.

April 16th, 2008 at 03:01 am

Saving log - $2 tip box
Spending log - $1.19 coffee + $13 lunch + $7 groceries

I got the first paycheck after my new 403B withholding. In case you missed it, I hiked up my 403B withholding to bulk up my non-taxable accounts, force me to spend my taxable accounts, and basically put me in a better tax position for next year.

Better tax position, baselle, better tax position. Keep repeating that while I blink at my direct deposit deposit in my online bank account. It was a 400$ drop. Per paycheck. That makes me queasy.

This is going to be very, very different.

Collected up my coupons and bought $14 worth of groceries that we use for $7.

    Great job on the coupon savings!
    If we lost that much per pay period, we would have to move!

    How often are you paid?

  3. baselle Says:

    SMB - Twice per month.

    boomeyers - This was entirely voluntary, I can make it up with my savings and I haven't lost the money, it just shifted into the 403B, to later, perhaps turn into a tax refund in 09. I really am working for my tax writeoff!
