This post over at Get Rich Slowly really resonated with me. My extra incomes just get swallowed up by my family's monthly spending. Same thing with "found" money (though I don't get much of that too often!). I really need to give my extra income streams a "job". General savings or for something specific. I'm getting to the point where if I lost those side jobs (and the big one that is at least $600 per month could really go at any time, if the company decides they are finally ready for an in-house bookkeeper) I'd really feel the loss of income. Hopefully by starting to track my spending more carefully I can get an idea where ALL our money is going.
