I had almost forgotten about this series. Let’s jump straight to the bullet points.
- I continue to not fill up full gas tanks as energy prices drop. I’m expecting that the next time I go to the gas station gas will be a few cents cheaper. This is a very small savings (about 28 cents when I did it last week), but it makes me feel good that I’ll be getting a “deal”, which is more important to me.
- My Prosper account has now paid $200 in interest. While my first loan was in mid-March, my second loan was mid-May. So for what is largely 7 months, this is pretty good. It’s hard to fully estimate the gains as I’ve been irregularly pouring money into the account. I have just over $3300 lended out.
- This past weekend, I spent a fair amount of money on a weekend trip to Boston.
- Like last week, I continue to procrastinate with writing the check for my Roth IRA. I think it’s just that I have to use the office computer for a printer (yes I’m an engineer that can’t set up printer sharing). Of course going to that computer and logging into a website to print it out AND snail mail it out is far too much work for me (now you see where I get my name). Perhaps there’s some time this weekend.
That’s all I have for this week.Â If I don’t post again today, have a good weekend.
