We are finally seeing a real income increase this month. We have a total of $4,600 to work with this month. Oh YEAH!
So happy to be in charge on our money! Now lets tell every dollar where to go…
Utilities (electric, tv, telephone) $350
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
Charity $250 (we are increasing this for June. The kids will be going to some Vacation Bible Schools and we want to give)
Grocery $600 (looking forward to this going down next month when the garden starts coming in)
Vacation $500 (increasing this a bit since we are headed to the BEACH in a few weeks)

Yes, we are spending a lot more this month but the important thing is that we are still saving!
Where is your money going this month?
