May Recap

Ugg! I am so glad that May is over and June is here!!! :-)

Not surprisingly we went over budget. Luckily $775 of that will be able to be used toward rent next month.

The most drastic category we were under was in our groceries...we spent $117.57, an over $80 savings! Our electric bill was also under, coming in at the lowest yet here at $55. We all know that we were over (WAY OVER) with the clothing...$190 to be exact! Ouch. So yeah, definitely not a good month. I'm doing some serious overhaul on the June budget, so hopefully we will do better.

On a positive note we were able to pay down $2,450 in debt, bring us down to about $8,400!

June is the last month with a steady income from hubby until school starts again in September. Luckily he works part-time, but it's not as consistent as salary pay.

June Goals:

1. Completely pay off hubby's school loan!

2. Purge at least one item a day. It's de-clutter time!

3. Workout 3-4 times/week. One time being swimming.

4. Wear sunscreen when I'm laying out.

5. Buy more local/organic produce.

6. Finish at least 2 books and start working on my magazine pile(s).

congrats on paying down your debt! :) even if the month didn't turn out as you'd planned, you still did a great job!

I am also glad May is over, we were way out of control with our money. June I am focused!
Great job on being able to pay down over $2K in debt!
