Well, I just posted my nice little $700 budget and then I got my property tax bills. These are the bills for the 2 pieces of vacant land that my RV is sitting on. Last year the total was $811.47, this year $936.07. Dividing by 12 months that's a $10/month increase.
Now, I know that I am paying an additional $120 that wasn't in my budget last year but I have enough cushion in my savings to pay for it. I just add $10/month starting now to my budget. I had to subtract it from my misc. fund. That means I have $10 less a month to buy stuff I want...like food :) But really, I just see it as more of a challenge. Groceries are the one area where I often splurge, like for ice cream and cookies. I could do more baking for myself but I just don't do it. Now maybe I'll start.
