|A Healthy Wrap!|
Let's look at the numbers shall we?
Numbers are are a bit down in savings and debt from their usual monthly amounts because of purchasing a painting this month and paying my annual trailer fee. Oh well, that's life and the TRAILER is a HUGE part of my life!! And so is having my brother's original oil paintings on my walls:)
Entertainment is up a bit too due to having a couple of restaurant dinners. I used a $50.00 coupon to help defray the cost of one of them however, so not as bad as it would have been.
Transportation is up a bit due to an oil change and air filter change and also the rising cost of gas. Trying to conserve by not driving around the city as much but that's difficult to do with three adults having to go hither, thither and yon everyday. Stupid barrels of oil and our dependency on them!!
I'm looking at my food total and know that can't be correct as I've started using the last two week's of grocery money already - that number should be around the $225 mark so will have to check my receipts, guess I missed one. I think we're doing REALLY WELL with our food budget bringing it down from $500 per month to $400 per month.
So what did I spend $120 on in my Misc budget line? Ummmmm, oh yeah, I renewed my computer virus protection plan ($56), some Timmy's coffees and a lunch, paid for Turbotax ($38.40-2 returns), one iTunes song ($1.29) and a couple of newspapers. Some exciting life I lead huh?
I have about $100 left for Misc spending til the end of the month. I think I can make it. Hopefully I won't have quite as many extra expenses next month other than renewing my car's license sticker ($74), an annual expense.
How's your budget doing? Are you on track??
