March Budget recap!

March 31st, 2011 at 09:54 am

Here is my recap of my March budget, I actually did half decent!! I'm going to list my budgeted amount first and then my actual amount spent!

Income: 1885
Total: 2921

Bank Fee: 12.95/12.95
Car Ins. 31.75/31.75
Tenant Ins. 21.83/21.83
Cell/Internet: 130/126.87
Life Ins: 48.38/48.38
Auto Savings: 75/75
Education: 25/25
Rent: 500/500
Misc: 100/137.91 Over by 37.91
Out: 40/40
Clothes 50/50
Misc Save: 100/100
Snow Removal: 20/20
Grocery: 380/376.17
Gas: 100/80
Eat Out: 80/65.60
Car Maint: 50/50
Extra Save: 100/1030 Extra 930 into savings
Christmas: 75/75
Hair: 40/40
Sitter: 20/20

Total Budgeted 2040 Total Spend: 1996.46 + 930 extra into savings.

I use cash for just about everything expect bills and gas. So if I have money left over it just stays in the envelope till I need it, like I did use my sitter money but I still put the 20$ in. I also go through my envelopes and take out any change left over from the month and add it into my change jar. I also make sure I have an balance of 150 in my chequings account at the end of the month anything else gets put into savings. I'm expecting a lower income next month and even lower come the summer so I may have to do some more adjusting of the budget. I hope everyone had a great March!!

    Extra savings rules, and it is good that you have tenant insurance... always better to be safe than sorry on that front, because it can lead to headaches otherwise. Nice going!
