|July was a ho-hum month for my cash accounts and the stock market. The market seems to be slowly melting upwards, which is just how I like it, nothing spectacular, just slow and steady gains. I only have two more months to save for a house, and I am a couple weeks ahead of schedule according to my Mint.com goal tracker. August is also a 3 paycheck month so I should be able to save quite a bit of extra cash.
I had some extra expenses this month so my credit card bill in August will be higher than average. I was the best man at my best friends wedding, and my car insurance bill came due.
I traveled to San Antonio, TX in July. It was a great business trip, I banked $100 in food per-diem, and still ate like a king. During August, I will be traveling to Nevada for a week, and in September, I will be in Atlanta for a week. This is going to be an extremely busy three months as I close in on my house purchase. In August I plan to start looking for a house, and secure a loan approval. 3.5% for a 30-year loan. Woohoo!
