Well, I thought this month was going to be better than last. It looks like it will only be slightly better at $3,800. We still plan to tighten our belts this month. The kids are on Spring Break the first week of this month which means we will save a little on gas since I will not be driving to school or any other activities this week. I have declared it spring cleaning week so we will be busy!
Remember, with the Zero-Based budget, every dollar as a place to go with nothing left over. Here is our April 2013 budget…
Utilities (electric, tv, telephone) $300
Health Insurance $499
Other Insurance $120
House Payment $589
Extra Principle on House Mortgage $400 (this keeps us in line to pay off our only debt of our house in less than 5 years)
Children’s 529 plans $100
Christmas/Gifts $ 75
Home Projects $100 (looking to finish the playhouse)
Garden Fund $27 (we are starting this envelope this month in anticipation on the growing season)
Where is your money going this month?
