While looking over our bank statement I came to the realization that way too much money was going towards dining out, buying things we don’t need from places like Target, splurging on outings, etc. So for the month of August all of that stuff is off limits.
Now things like bills will be paid because they have to whether I like it or not and I’m setting a budget for gas and groceries because we need food and my husband has to get to drive to work. I’m hoping to only spend $400 for the month on gas and groceries. We haven’t ever attempted this before so this is my best estimate of what we will spend.
So to summarize,
Included in our budget:
-any blogging expenses
-rent and bills
What I hope to change:
No more fast food or running to grab something for a snack. All our meals will be prepared at home and we will get better at planning to bring snacks with us if we go somewhere. No more impulse buys like books for me, movies for my husband and little toys for Bella. We all have plenty and we need to make do with what we have.
So I’m a little nervous to see how we do but I’m excited at the same time. I will be posting weekly updates to keep me on track and to let you all know how it’s going.
