December Budget

Well looky here at all the things I can accomplish when trying to avoid studying for my exam on Friday morning. So far I’ve knocked one book off of my book challenge list and I’ve made a budget for December. I swear I have a really pretty version saved on my computer! I downloaded a template from Cait author of Blonde on a Budget and everything. Now do you think I could find a way to insert that into this post? Of course not… So here it is in stupid plain old font:

Debt                    Goal

Student Loan    $120.00

Line of Credit    $115.00

Car Loan          $288.11

Visa                  $400.00

Savings

Retirement      $234.00

Future Fund   $50.00

Transportation (a.k.a Jerry)

Insurance        $115.00

Gas                 $150.00

Parking           $78.00

Life

Cell Phone     $150.00

Misc/Food      $130.00

Total:             $1830.11

I guess for me “December” begins on the 12th (also my 24th birthday!) and continues until January 8th as I get paid on the 9th. We’ll see how that goes! This is my first attempt at an actual monthly “budget” however there are a few adjustments that I had to make.

1. I had to have Jerry’s windshield replaced so not as much will be going into the “future fund”

2. I expect a larger phone bill than normal

3. My RRSP’s actually come right out of my pay cheque and I can’t actually change the amount the amount I contribute but I thought it was important to include it so people can see I am saving!

I should probably go study for my exam now…barf!

  1. Good luck with your budget!

    Do you have any image editing software on your computer? If not, you can download ones for free, I recommend GIMP. The Print Screen button on your keyboard is your friend when you want to capture an image on your screen that you can’t save as a jpeg or other image file. Ctrl+PrintScreen will make a copy of your current screen display and you can paste it into a new file in GIMP or other image editing software. Crop/trim what you want, save, and you can upload to WordPress. 🙂 Hope that helps!
