Budget month one thoughts

October 3rd, 2009 at 03:34 pm

Well, it was harder than I thought but we made it through the first month. Food was still the biggest budget buster for the month. We also went a little over in our clothing budget. We just moved to Colorado and it got colder sooner than I thought it would so we had to get the kids winter coats. We have made some adjustments to the budget and have posted a new version. Any excess money will go directly towards debt. We still paid off $2388 in debt. Hopefully October we will be able to do a little more. We did receive our final travel claim money for our move which was a little under $1000 which we put towards debt.

    That is a huge amount to pay off! Great job. My daughter stays home too. Her husband deploys again in late March/early April.

    The good thing is that the warm clothes are insurance against the colder weather later, so you won't need to buy things again right away. So glad you were able to make a debt payment like that! It has to lead to such a great feeling of progress...
