No, I don't really have a Budget Wednesday but we are about 1/3 into June, and I thought I would give a little update. And we are not really shopaholics but it seems like this week money was just slipping threw our fingers.
We are doing OK with our food budget but we're cutting it close. I have $7 and change left until the end of the week. But I only need milk, some tomatoes and salad, and we should be set. I'm not concerned about the food budget.
But our miscellaneous budget is pretty much blown, and it's not even the middle of the month yet :( I have to admit, $130 for the whole month for everything other than food, bills and gas, is PRETTY tight. But what put us over the edge is our swamp cooler. We just needed so many little and big things for it that we went back and forth to Walmart 5 times in the last two days!! Valves, a new pump, sealers, you name it.
So after we buy another Birthday gift this week and get a puppy his booster shots, we'll be over in the miscellanious department :(
But at least it gives us an idea of what to expect in the upcoming months. We decided to go very low in June to prepare ourselves for what's coming when Hubby will actually be out of work. I know, we are not going to be fixing a swamp cooler every month (keeping fingers crossed...) but there is always something...
Which means, I need to go and work triple-hard today, people :)
How are you doing with your budget this month so far?
