This was a good month. I tracked our spending and we are right in line with my budget. I guess that is a little lucky because I haven't tracked it for several months. The only category that we were over in is our household category because we spent extra on our landscaping. I need to do a separate post about landscaping.
I also paid $2500 to our tractor loan again and ended up paying extra to the tune of $6500 bringing the balance to $7480. If I could continue paying $2500 per month for the rest of the year, it would be paid off. I think that's highly unlikely as my commission checks are expected to be smaller and I really want to beef up our savings.
How was your September?
By the way, I was doing some reading online about cloth diapers which brings up the question, how many loads of laundry do you do in a week? We do 2 or 3 depending on whether we have bedding to wash. We bought the largest LG washer and dryer so we don't have to do a ton of loads. It is hard to imagine doing laundry every day.
