It’s no secret that this month I am over budget. However the Mint app is telling be I still have $167 left over..woohoo for me! This month looked like this:
Budgeted with Mint- $1733
I actually spent: $2374 ($666 was tires/car maintenance)
I think maybe it’s time to change my game a little bit and start keeping an Excel spreadsheet similar to Shoeaholicnomore (teach me your ways!). I think I’ll find this a little difficult only because I don’t use my laptop/home computer on a daily basis. Does anyone keep spreadsheets on their phone? I need to keep current with the times man! Moving forward for June, I’m going to sit down tonight and outline an Excel budget for the month of June. This will include my $370 insurance payment coming up June 1st (I haven’t had to pay insurance since I moved in with my boyfriend since we were changing the policy around a little.) I also think I need a little blog re-vamp since the top of the page still says my journey is to get out of my parents’ basement. Wish me luck!
