Because I started my new job in the middle of their pay cycle, I have to wait 3 weeks to get paid – this is the 2nd week. Meaning I get paid next Friday.
With starting a new job and trying to find a new place to live, I haven’t really been paying much attention to my finances (besides nearly having a heart attack when I saw my RRSP portfolio). I’m going to have to get my act together and figure this out.
I’m almost certain that September and October will see my net worth fall – my RRSP portfolio has fallen, and I’m having to take $$ out of my EF to cover the damage deposit on the new apartment, and the 1/2 month of double rent I’ll have to pay. Plus, my Travel Fund will basically be cleaned out with my upcoming trips.
So, I’m really going to have to prioritize my finances, and look at everything from 2 years into the future. Where do I want to be, and how can I go about achieving those goals? Then, I’m going to create an action plan and stick to it.
