Week two of keeping track of the money has gone pretty well. Week 1 was pretty uneventful except when I noticed that my Monthly budget did not have the Auto Insurance listed. For the love of Pete!! I am not going to be too hard on myself, budgets need to be flexible and so do I.
Monday: Gas 52.00
Eat Out: 35.00
Tuesday: Grocery: 47.00
Wednesday: Hair Cut 30.00
Thursday: Gas: 59.00
Friday: Starbucks: for a friend an myself 8.00
Saturday: Clothing: 80.00
Eating Out: 30.00
Operation Christmas Child 10.00
The grocery category is currently at 314.00 I
did budget 600.00 for the month ( and yes that is high). We both took our lunches to work again this week. The eating out category is inching its way up. Right now we have spent about 84.00 on eating out. Will have to keep an eye on that. We budgeted 200.00
Gas is a necessary expense. I budgeted 500.00 for the month and so far we have spent 353.00 this month. Unfortunately we both live about 25 to 35 miles from our jobs, but on the plus side, we at least both have jobs :)
For personal spending, I have gone over the set amount. I budgeted 100.00 and I currently have spent 140.00 .
There have been some other positive things going on with out budget, and I will post about that when the dust settles and all the numbers come together.
How was your week? Did you stay on course with your budget or do you have to make adjustments?
