June Budget Complete

June 5th, 2011 at 04:30 pm

I have completed my budget through June and the beginning of July. Right now I need to come up with about $300. I don't think it will be a problem. EX dh owes me about $311 so hopefully he will pay me. Then things will be looking good. Of course nothing if final until it actually happens. I just need to control my eating out. We have food to eat, but it is just simpler to eat out. I need to stop that and purchase something to have at work to eat for breakfast.

I filled my car up on Friday. I can judge how well my budget is doing based upon my ability to fill my car up and not just get enough to get through. I can't remember the last time I just had to get enough for a couple of days. So obviously I must be doing something right. It feels really good.

    I hear you on the eating out. I find that if I plan my meals out for the week, I am less likely to eat out. Part of my problem lies in the not knowing what to cook.

    Agree with jewels3, meal planning helps me too, but I also avoid eating out by keeping some easy backup dinners around for when I'm unexpectedly busy or tired. For me that usually means frozen bean burritos (around 50 cents each), a frozen box of vegetables with cheese sauce (about $1.50) or a packet of pesto sauce and pasta (maybe $2 total, boils in 10-15 minutes).
