Spending Update: Apr-May 2012
I’m a little behind on a lot of things, but I finally finished tabulated my April-May spending
Projected Monthly Income: $2800.00
Actual Monthly Income: $3088.95
I got married during the pay period, and my husband and I moved into our new place. Even though our new apartment is free, we still have a few months left on the lease, so we will still be paying rent, utilities etc. For all the other catagories, I pretty much just made up a number, hoping that the total amount of money spent is less than my paycheck. Hopefully after a few months, I’ll have a better idea of how much money to allocate in each category.
The bulk of the extra money spend went towards buying new things for our new apartment. Luckily, I ended up having a larger paycheck than expected so cash flow wise, we were still in the black.
