Our New Budget

January 15th, 2015 at 02:12 pm

Husband wanted to be included in the budget so last night we sat down and figured up a new budget now that I know exactly what I will be making after tax.

Of course the budget will be a little different for these first couple checks because I owe myself some money and my credit card needs paid down. But hopefully this will be our budget once things get settled.

Our Total Monthly Wages = $3,000

$500 - House
$100 - Propane
$50 - Water
$20 - Trash
$75 - Internet
$175 - Electric (Average)
$300 - Food & Household
$300 - Tithes
$75 - Car Insurance
$10 - Phone
$350 - Car Fuel
$300 - Spending & Unexpected Costs

$200 - LOC Paydown
$400 - Savings
$100 - Home Improvement Fund

That puts our savings/extra debt repayment at 23%. Not included in this figure is overtime, goat sales, side income, tax return, etc. Which all of which goes directly into savings or LOC.

    Wow. Your expenses seem so low compared to mine. Part of me is jealous! Maybe it's because even though I pretend my yard is a farm, we live in the city and that comes with a big price tag.

    Where you live has a lot to do with expenses and also income. I am fortunate that I live in a pretty LCOL area. Although that also means my income is smaller also.
