I'm back, and I'm ready to try and reduce my spending once again! I've made some adjustments, and hopefully this one is a little more realistic of my current needs. I know I have some more car repairs and more doctor appointments coming up, so I've increased both of those budgets. I've also added a Miscellaneous Cash and Chicago Category.
You're probably thinking, "Waaaaaaaait! can't this girl just sit still! New York last month, Chicago this month...." Well, ya see, this trip is kinda special and deserves a post all of it's own. So all I'm going to say is that I am taking a road trip to support Sig. O for a huge event related to his business. :) I'm so excited, and so proud of him.
My goal is to use my Misc. Cash to cover my Personal Care and Restaurant Expenses. It makes me a little bit nervous because I always seem to find a reason to pick up little gifts for other people... Speaking of gifts, I know I will be making Holiday gifts with my sister the weekend after Thanksgiving. Hmm... looks like some of my Misc. Cash has just been re-purposed.
*Note* My budget excludes fixed expenses, retirement, and savings.
Here's to better budgeting!
