My New Year’s Resolution for this year was to get my finances back in order. So I want to share my journey with you every step of the way!
Today I will be sharing my January budget results with you!
So let’s just jump right in!
We do not share our income on my blog for various reasons, but that is what I always list first on our budget.
I line my expense categories based on when they are due. For example, our mortgage is due on the 1st of every month, whereas our electric isn’t due until the 5th. So that’s how I decide where they go each month.
We also don’t share expenses such as our mortgage or our car payment on my blog (just for personal reasons).
I also keep an unbudgeted category as a placeholder, but I don’t actually budget for unbudgeted items.
My budget also includes a “Sinking Funds” category, you can read more about that HERE!
There ya have it, folks. We were $153 under budget and we got $215 extra in income, so both of those combined were put into savings or put toward debt.
