Honestly, there aren’t too many changes here! Our budget is pretty stagnant from month to month. That is the life of being poor and pulling on by!
As always, we use YNAB so our budget isn’t a forecast, it is the money that we have in the bank right now, that is good to go to be spent. Money that has been assigned a job. As money for March comes in, it will be budgeted towards April. Mr. Wanderlust and I do not believe in forecasting, especially if you live on a variable income, like we do. We haven’t ran into any major speed bump that prevented us from being buffered a month in advance, but we know we can make some concessions in a few places in our budget if needed. So, here we go!
Personal Care- $10
Bursar Office- $197.40 (yay graduation fees)
Mr. Wanderlust spending money- $100
Mrs. Wanderlust spending money- $100
Car Replacement- This will be 20% of our paychecks for the month of March as well as most of our tax refund
Car Repairs- $15
Car Insurance- $10
AAA Membership- $15
Storage Fees- $300
Graduation Party- $50
I’m thinking this month will be a pretty smooth flowing one. I’ve been feeling the call to begin tithing, but we haven’t talked too much about that. We live on a pretty strict spending plan right now and I’m not really sure we can add to that right now or not. It is also why I haven’t broached the subject with Mr. Wanderlust yet.
