- Wedding: April 2014
I make $446 net every week, and my Fiance now makes $279 net every week. Sounds like a lot. Add phone bills, car note, insurance, rent, utilities, credit card payments, gasoline, and food, we are down to $170 a week for me, and $60 a week for him.
We have our own house, but it is unlivable. So, in order to move in (which we want to do before Christmas) here is what we will need.
– Subfloor $540.00
– Wood Flooring $335.00
– 2 panes of clear glass $28.00
– 2 panes of frosted glass $65.00
– 18 sets of curtains $180.00
– Front door $200.00
– 2 sheets of paneling $40.00
– Paint to match current wall color $27.00
Now our house will be livable, but that comes up to about $1,415.00.
Add furniture, and we get a slightly higher number.
– Couch: Free off craigslist
– loveseat: $45.00 for slipcover
– Coffee table: $13.00
– Stove: $250.00
– Fridge: $100.00
– Dining room table: $50.00
We either own everything else or are getting it free from a family member. So now we are up to $1,873.00.
Then we have to have a water meter installed, so that jacks it up to $2,473.00 before Christmas, maybe slightly afterward.
Between now and then, there are approximately 21 weeks left. about $4,830.00 coming in for it. There is also the wedding, which my Fiance insists on shopping for now. That adds $1500 for our part of it, which brings it up to $6,330.00.
Which of these items is most important to be bought, and which are least important? As you can see we are a slight bit short of the cash so, help!
