July Budget

Happy August, friends!  Today is the first Monday of the month so we’re going to review July’s accomplishments.

There weren’t many if we’re talking finances… We were able to overpay our debts as usual but by significantly less than we expect of ourselves.

July is always a crazy month for us, since we try to do something for Independence Day and Elizabeth’s birthday which always end up costing us extra.

Afterthought: we’ll have to create a sinking fund for Birthdays in the future.

We were, however, very fortunate in that the present we gave her was an electric MINI cooper we purchased when I was only 8 weeks pregnant with her.  It was the Saturday after Black Friday (2014) and the car was on sale for $25.  I would have purchased at least a couple but ironically only one would fit inside my MINI Cooper!

Back to the budget – we spent more money in every one of our budget categories due to our July lifestyle.

August is shaping up to be a significantly better month so far, though we are going on a vacation in a couple weeks.  Wish us luck, we’re already doing our best to prep for money saving measures while we’re away.
