HOW SINGLE MALT FUCKED UP MY MONEY SUPPLY
I had forgotten I had 2 expenses coming up in the next few days and I spent money on fun when I did not really have it to spend. I ended up after the 2 things I needed to pay out for with only $12 for the rest of the month. It was an OH SHIT moment.
Fortunately I had a couple people send a few bucks on PayPal so now I have at least coffee and chip money for the rest of the month and I can drop an extra $20 on my outstanding Cable bill - then in October I get the GST rebate of $180 and that will pay off the rest of the bill, and I'll be back to normal money wise I hope.
I have paid off the outstanding amount on the credit card that I had left over so that's all good. I have a limit of $500 on the card. After bills and rent I have $381.78 to spend on the rest of life. Being I had the card maxed out there was the matter of not being able to pay it all off the next month but that's sorted.
I have been trying to get back to the point where I can pay off the card as I spend the money, but I don't honestly think I'll ever be there. I'd need a good extra $500 to do that and this will never happen. The sad thing is, friends helped me get to that point before with donations and then a couple of disasters happened and POOF back to being in the hole every month.
