Budgeting -- Tight Month

June 18th, 2015 at 06:17 am

I drove today, hoping to sidestep the Blackhawks celebration madness, and I stopped for gas on the way in - $31. I've spent 69% of my variables budget now, with 60% of the month done. I may try to skip the grocery this weekend; I seem to be pretty well stocked, at least enough to get me through another week.

With my gas tank full, and enough pet supplies on hand, I should be able to get through the rest of the month on the $225 left in the budget. I DO have to buy a gift for my DIL, and make a dinner for her. But there is no other expected expense till July.

I will load up the car with personal stuff from my office before going home. It will probably take me several trips to empty it, so I will use every chance I get to take a load home.

I located my mother's death certificate and obituary in my files (yay me! I'm usually bad at this stuff!) So now I just have to wait for the third property form to come in the mail and I can send it all in. A little over $1000, to be split four ways among the siblings. Nice snowflake!

    Can you do lunch one day next week? I am open every day. Let me know if that works for you! I have a Barbara Vine mystery for you, too! Smile

    Oops! Just had a conflict pop up! Can we do Wednesday at 12?

  7. laura/deacon's wife Says:

    Sure thing! That will work better for me, too! High-maintenance dog is going for a grooming visit on Tuesday at 9. It's best for everyone involved if I pick him up and get him home right after. Wednesday then! Looking forward to it!
