Well it finally came through! I got my promotion! I'm getting a 10% raise and a bonus of 20%!!!! It is going to be retroactive to Dec 3!!!! In reality it won't mean much in terms of weekly pay as its kicking me into the next tax bracket but the bonus will make a huge difference!

im going to up my retirement contributions by 1% so I'm investing 11% and the rest will go toward debt! So excited!!!

Thanks everyone!

I already went to HR and got the RRSP change form and upped my contribution by 1% (so in total with match I am now at 11%). I still have about $400 extra on my pay tomorrow that will be used for spending money in Cuba (leave in a week . . . all paid in cash!)

The extra on my Jan 4 pay (which won't be much) will be split 50% debt and 50% towards something I want :) This is the plan going forward . . . more balance. I can still pay down debt and have some fun too!

Congrats!!

DH and I got extras on our cheques this week as well (unexpectedly). I thought about adding it all to debt but we are just soooo stretched that I decided to use it for some breathing room. I hate having to count every dollar in our account and not pay bills until pay day!!!

So I totally agree about BALANCE :)
