Europe Fund Full!

I got paid on Friday and after doing my monthly student loan payment, Roth investment, E-fund and house fund savings, I moved $400 to my travel fund, and with that I am ready for my trip at the end of this month! I think I planned for plenty of spending, but I'd rather come home with some money in my savings than not have enough.

I'm happy I've been able to fund this account without derailing any of my other goals. And, since I've been tutoring after school once a week, I was also able to put a little extra into my savings as well as budget some shopping money. Which I used to get a pair of riding boots that I want to marry. And will wear to Europe.

This will be the first international trip I've paid for WITHOUT using a credit card. It's still a lot of spending to do, but knowing that I put money specifically aside for the trip makes me feel excited and comfortable with the cost.

T-minus twenty five days!!
