November was a very good month for my budget. It did help that I was gone for a week on vacation, no gas or food money spent for 8 days(thank you family!). And it did help that I was able to pay for the $400 airplane ticket from my travel fund and other little savings from previous months.
Oh...and the weather was exceptionally nice so my utilities were low, and...gas prices went down and I am still carpooling and... I have been eating the food that I already have in the fridge and pantry and resisting the urge to go grocery shopping although I really need to go again soon.
Here are the totals:
These categories are subtracted out of my variable budget fund of $447 for items that fluctuate from month to month. Any extra money goes to ME! I have over $250 left over! That is amazing. I think I will put $200 of it towards the mortgage and the rest will go in my maintenance fund. Something is bound to break sooner or later (hopefully later). I love months like that when I come out ahead.
