Decent month here in April.  With my tax refund exhausted, I came back down to level ground and got back on track with normal amounts of cash.  I saw a big hit on cash due to a $300 student loan payment, as well as boosting up my payment to $96 per week, averaging $416 per month instead of the normal $300 I was doing.  I am also “losing” $25 or so per week in cash due to 401k starting up at the beginning of the month.  Those two, along with a Chevron purchase of $419, lost me over 800 in the cash supply.  I may decide to put the Lil Sizzlers on hold for a while, and work up a larger cash fund for ’emergency’ situations.  I will continue with my 401k and IRA contributions.  Definitely excited to have the 401k started and am taking advantage of that 5% match.

A small raise is near, and by the end of the month I may be making about 50 cents an hour more, which will be nice.  May be adding a few additions to the home gym, which will cost but also raise the net worth by a few dollars.  This is my last month of $400 rent, and starting in June it will move to $475.  That obviously isn’t great, but I am moving into a new place with my lady and it’s very nice and worth the extra cash.  Besides that, I will continue normal spending and enjoying life.  With the weather getting nice, it’s awesome to be able to head outside and take advantage of the motorcycle and other fun things!
