This month was okay. Not great by any means but not entirely terribly. I finished teaching for the year, and am almost a week into camp (unbelievable – how does time go so quickly?). Here is my budget and spending for the month of June:
|Date Night Fund||40||40||—|
I went way over budget on groceries, but I didn’t budget for an extra week of grocery shopping. The Banker and I pay for groceries on alternate weeks, and this month it worked out that I paid 3 times instead of 2, and it drastically affected my spending. I also went over on food and entertainment, but I’m not surprised by that since it was The Banker’s birthday month; we did a little bit extra because of that.
Overall, since more than half of what I went over my budget was paying down extra debt, I’m actually pretty happy with this month of spending.
How was your June? Any letdowns? Or major successes?
