I'm calling it a month budget-wise. I would normally wait until the 31st when we get paid to close out the month but I need to do next weeks shopping tomorrow because my sister is flying in from New York on Friday. She knows I will throw a super awesome Super Bowl party and she hasn't met Baby G yet. I'm so excited to have her here.
For groceries, we spent $525 for the month. I'm going to have a separate baby category going forward. I do consider this month a success.
For our other spending, excluding gas, we spent around $400. This does exclude Y's personal spending. We spent around $75 on eating out, $20 on gifts, and the other $305 was spent on supplies to finish the basement and other miscellaneous things like a birth certificate. We did stock up on laundry detergent, dishwasher tabs and toilet paper when we were at Menards.
Our gas budget is $500 and we only spent $275. Woohoo!
One of my goals for this month was to have $3000 in our regular savings. We have $3400 as of today but I'm still expecting one last medical bill for around $400.
Y's spending--I'm not sure if I should just give him an allowance or what. He spent $283. Thus includes beer, smokes, energy drinks, snacks for him and Lil Punk, and who knows what else. Oh, I think he also had to buy something for our water heater, too. How do you all account for your significant other's spending?
