7486832060_a80f096332_zI can’t believe it’s already time to post my JUNE 2014 Budget Plan! Here it is:

CategoryMonthly Total
DIFFERENCE-$0.40
Charity$10.00
EF$20.00
Morgage$852.28
House Repairs$20.00
City Bill$110.00
Gas$32.28
Cable$77.88
Internet$51.87
Phone$102.20
Food$120.00
Car Fuel$60.00
Car Repairs$10.00
Car Insurance$93.44
Clothes and Hair$40.00
Pets$40.00
Household$30.00
Personal$30.00
Crossfit$80.00
Cleaning$72.00
Debt$576.91
TOTAL$2,428.86
INCOME$2,428.46

You’ll see that the debt category went down again this month. Since I paid off my first debt in March, I’ve been snowflaking money toward debt each month based on the amount I need to live off of, so the amount going toward debt (about the minimum payments) varies a bit each month. I try to account for things I know will occur in the month so I know how much to give myself to live off of. Most of my credit card minimum payments have gone down slightly as the balances get lower as well.

I thought May would be a good month, but I had a hard time controlling my want to eat out and I had a few unexpected expenses pop up too. Here’s to hoping that June is considerably better.

As always, holler if you have any questions about my budget 🙂 and I have an awesome guest post lined up for you tomorrow. We’re having a blog swap, so be sure to check out my post tomorrow at The Weight of Debt!

    1. Thanks Hannah! I try to plan ahead, but you can’t be prepared for every situation that comes up. I am learning to make plans, but try not to get to upset if they don’t always work out exactly like I thought.

  1. Your budget looks great and you’ve planned a large chunk to go towards your debt. I didn’t have a good May myself to be honest as a family emergency cropped up which only allowed me to pay my minimums on my debts. Boo! I already know June will be much better.

    Good luck this month, and looking forward to your blog swap with The Weight of Debt.

    1. Thanks DBC! I hope to pay more than minimums each month, but some don’t go as planned. I hope your emergency turned out ok.

  2. I think it’s smart to handle debt that way. Otherwise other day to day expenses end up on the card. Yay for budgets!
