December 08 Budget

DECEMBER 08 BUDGET




INCOME

HR fixed my W-2 error which was costing me about $100 per paycheck. I'll get the overage back via my tax refund.


AUTO

I am finally going to get some tints on my car. I have been meaning to get them for the past two years and never had the time or money (or both).

My gas budget ia at $200 but I hope I spend way less than that.



FOOD

*cough* @ that "Dining Out" budget. You would have thought that I would have learned my lesson by now. But I can't surrender the white flag just yet. I

Went grocery shopping and used COUPONS! Three of those jokers helped me save $5. I printed the coupons from online. I am going to sign up with some coupon sites and also look into signing up to get the Sunday paper or just buying one here and there.


DEBT

Just paying a minimum and a half on them and see if I can do some damage with the money I have left after everything is paid.

My student loan monthly payment went up to $157.10. Not quite sure why. Gonna call them this week and found out.



MISC

I budgeted $175 for beauty this month. I am going to get my hair done (micros). It is usually about $40 for the hair and $75 for the service. I also need to restock on some of my hair and skin products.

Even though I don't have any plans to go to the doctor this month, I budgeted $30 just in case.

Budgeted $300 for Xmas gifts.



XTRA INCOME

It is only the 8th of the month and I have already brought in $350 in extra income. $300 of it went to my Xmas budget. The $50 will go to birthday expenses.

I am just amazed at your budget. I know that I need to really stick to one and get myself on a better financial footing since I am a single woman. My XDH still doesn't get it that you need to save your money and stop spending it on BS. I wish he pay me back my $1000. I am losing interest on that money. Wish you many blessing as we end 08.

Peace
