Sorry for the silence mid-week this week readers. It has been a heck of a week. Between a special event taking place at my full-time job, hustling on several extra freelance projects (beyond the norm), trying to get things finished up for month-end, and struggling with some horrible allergies, I just got a bit behind. But I’m back on track now and I’m hoping to work ahead some this weekend to make my life a little simpler for future times when things get hectic. (We’ll see how that goes, haha.)
Anyhow, it’s time for me to share my April 2015 budget plan with you all. Like I’ve said before when I shared my January budget, I’ve switched things up a bit and have decided to include an amount of required side income in my budget each month. I do expect to make more than my required amount each month and thus I will report at the end of each month with a TOTAL INCOME AND EXPENSE REPORT to show you all how things actually ended up. I’m calculating things for March and I will post that info next week. Just a head’s up, if you thought my February results were a bit all over the place, you haven’t seen nothin’ yet. March’s ending budget report will be interesting to compile I’m sure!
Here’s my April 2015 budget plan:
|Clothes and Hair||$80.00|
|Side Income Required||$675.00|
This should be the last time I have to budget $80 for getting my hair done as we’ve gotten it lightened up and it is very close to my natural color at the base now. I have kind of an accidental ombre going on, which I don’t love but I know it’ll be short-lived as we cut off more and more of the darker hair at each hair cutting appointment. In fact, at my last appointment a couple of weeks ago, we didn’t color it at all, which really helps the wallet. 🙂
You might have also noticed that I cut Crossfit out of my budget plan for April. As much as I love it, I just haven’t been good about going lately and I don’t know that that’ll change this month. I seriously don’t have time for it in the evenings and I am struggling big-time to get out of bed at my normal non-workout time (let alone getting up an hour or so earlier to work out). You all know I hate the “I don’t have time” excuse, so I guess I should call it like it is. Right now I’ve got other priorities besides hitting the gym everyday. At least I’ve realized I’m not going to go so I can quit paying for it!
I need to get some more contacts this month, so I added that line-item into my budget this month. I also hope to get new lenses for my glasses, but I didn’t add that into the budget plan as I’m not sure how much that’ll cost.
April is also the month of my birthday and I’m hoping I get treated to a pedicure, haha. 😉 If not, I might spring for one for myself as I really love them and I haven’t had one since my birthday last year.
Do you have any big plans for April? How does your April 2015 budget plan look?
