Well, the year is over half over now! July is a busy, busy month for me. I am really looking forward to a long weekend for the 4th of July and then at the end of the month is our county fair. I am on the local fair board and also the extension board (4-H), which means fair week is a busy, tiring, and fun time of year! Here is my budget plan for July:
|Clothes and Hair||$40.00|
The debt category went up from June to July this month. I am hoping to pay a little more on my debts in July to help make up for such a crappy month in June. If you remember, my debt total increased due to my new tire purchase. 🙁
Like I explained last month, the amount I pay toward my debts each month varies a bit since I try to account for what activities I know I have planned for the month. For example, if I have a weekend trip planned, I allocate more money toward the gas and personal categories.
The last few months have all been tough and rather than telling you I hope to blow it out of the water this month and do excellent, my goal is just to maintain and make small progresses each month. Right now, I’m really just trying to get by until October! 🙂
How’s your July budget plan looking? Do you adjust your budget each month?
