February Budget Recap

Standard

Well, another month is gone. How do they fly so fast?

This month wasn’t so bad, we came in under budget! We only had to pay 25cents for hydro because of a credit we had (woohoo!), and we’re trying to use as little data on our phones which we saw result in a minus for that area (not much, but it means something). Our biggest savings was in gas – I love that it’s been (relatively) cheap lately! So nice!

  1. WOW! your energy bill is what I would like to see one day haha! 25 cents – that’s amazing! February was a decent month, since there are so few days, we have some $ left over. We’ll see what tax time does and if in annihilates any overage we have.
