Reviewing the budget

January 8th, 2015 at 10:11 am

I went over my expected income vs budgeted amounts today and I am really hoping to be able to pay $1000 off my line of credit this month. I put $100 towards it already today, I also paid my cellphone/internet which was $7 less then expected.

I was hoping for a no spend day but need to run to the post office to mail a letter, I also need to pick up a few things for my home business.

This weekend will hopefully be low spend, going for supper with friends Friday evening, Saturday will be the normal grocery shop, and Sunday dd is invited to a birthday party. I have some stocked up items in my gift closet I purchased on clearance after Christmas so we will find something in there and dd will make a card.

I'm working really hard to use up left overs lately to, very happy with myself. Would love to cut back in waste!

Budget Crazy

April 7th, 2011 at 10:55 am

Is anyone else budget crazy or is it just me? Almost once a day I go over my budget, my income, what has to come out, what goes into savings, how much I have left in each category! (my period key just broke so I apologize for the run on sentences and commas out of place lol)
I made some changes and added a new category to my budget for activities with dd I use to take this out of misc but I ALWAYS went over! Hopefully this works better it ups my budget a bit each month but hopefully it will work out with the overages, Tomorrow is pay day which makes me happy time to fill all my envelopes, pay off my cc for dds trampoline AND Easter shop tomorrow night! I have a budget of 100$ for Easter things for tomorrow I'm going to try VERY hard to stick to it. (it worked!) I already picked up 2 baskets, chalk, bubbles, and eggs to fill that I'm not going to count in my 100$ so total for her basket will hopefully be 110 or less! I had planned on giving her the trampoline for Easter to but she was with me when I picked it up and every day since we bought it she has to check to see if the snow is all gone so we can set it up! So excited! Well I hope everyone is having a GREAT Thursday!!!
