I posted the breakdown of my April budget yesterday, and today I’m putting up my budget for May. Hopefully this month will be even better, let’s hope I can stay on track.
|Date Night Fund||$40|
As you can see, this is a much larger total than I have had in the past, but I worked a lot in April and didn’t spend all of my earnings, and I hope to continue working a lot in May. My budget for gas in May is less than I spent in April. I’ve changed it to reflect my new car (which should be much better on gas), and because I won’t be here for a full week when we go to Florida. You’ll also notice a few new categories. Gifts has been added, because there is Mother’s Day and sometiems a birthday will pop up before you realize it! Also, The Banker has been paying for our cable and internet since he was making a significant amount more than me. However, now that I’ve been doing well, I’m going to contribute a little. I also have car insurance coming out of my account every month now (woohoo grown up responsibilities!). I’ve added a food/entertainment section because I seem to spend a lot there, and need to track it better. There are also a few things we want for the house, and I’ve included our money to spend in Florida and all the little things we’ll need to buy to prepare.
Have you done your budget for May? How does the month look right now?
