Downsizing My Paycheck

November 24th, 2016 at 06:59 am

I will be downsizing my paycheck in about a years time. My paycheck will be going down to half of what it is when then. So I'm working on getting my complete budget under that amount. What I was counting on was the car loan being paid off and not having a car payment for two years. Unfortunately I have to purchase a new vehicle because the current one needs $2,800 of repairs and I've already put in $1,000.

So the current payment is $200 on the current vehicle. It will go up to about $220, but I plan on making payments of $250. So I need to get rid of approximately $2000. Approximately $1,020 is the rent and water (it may be a bit more than that), electricity is approximately $100, and my parents are paying off two of the bills. So I just need to get rid of $120 more and I can be good to go on living on less.

    You were writing in your last post that people are renting apartments just like yours for $817 compared to your $931, if you were able to swap apartments there is your $120 saving (or thereabouts) instantly made - downsizing your paycheque should be the perfect reason to downsize your living arrangements. How much longer on your lease?

    Way to go on planning now for the paycheck downsize. VS has a good idea about switching to the cheaper apartment by that time. Would you be able to maintain $250 car payment during the downsize?

    downsizing my paycheck includes no longer paying rent at all, so I've taking out that amount from the paycheck. I need to do an additional amount of $120. And yes, I'll be able to maintain the $250 car payment.
