Budget is done!

June 9th, 2013 at 05:31 pm

I finally got around to making a budget for myself. I started it at the end of May but my energy level was below E and I couldn't give it or anything the attention it needed. The culprit was either my new medicine or I simply wasn't eating enough food.

My expenses for the month of June are $2800 which leaves me with a little more than $400 left in the month. I will most likely use the "extra money" to pay more on my debt.

I don't want to make it too tight in the beginning, but as the year progresses, I should have a better handle on where and how much of my money needs to go where.

    Congrats! Would love to see it or at least hear some highlights... I'm trying to create a new budget for myself as well. Wish you the best as far as health and healing, and looking forward to reading!

    I love budgeting! Even when I stopped blogging here a few years ago I kept up with my monthly budgeting and now have ten years of budget numbers on my excel sheet. I love knowing where about 95% of my money has gone the past ten years.

    Good job on creating your budget!

    I don't budget per se, but I do religiously track all expenses and then I add everything up, along with income, each month, and then again each year.

    It can be a real eye-opener, especially year over year when you can track broad trends in your spending patterns.

    thanks for the comments and encouragement everyone. i'll have to come back later today with my budget breakdown. i think for now it's important to see exactly where my money is going and be more aware of unnecessary spending.
