Month full of parties and laziness

August 26th, 2008 at 05:58 am

Everyone seems to have their birthday around this time of the year. This month alone we have been to few of them already and there's one more to go this Saturday. To say that I'm over the entertainment budget is an understatement. Luckily we didn't spend too much last month. Unfortunately, the trend will continue next month, there are couple of birthdays and of course Father's day.

With all these celebrations and just my plain laziness this month, I haven't been blogging (I've been reading though). I've been so lazy that I haven't been doing much grocery shopping either. Good news is that it is already the 26th and we still have over $70 in the grocery budget. It's the middle of our winter and it's too cold to go shopping. Right now we are on our last drop of fresh milk and I still don't want to go out. Luckily we do have some long life milk in the cupboard for when we run out. I think I could last until the weekend without going.

July 20K challenge

August 2nd, 2008 at 09:14 am

Last month was an expensive month due to some minor medical expense, which required some on going treatment for a bit over a month. Overall it will cost few hundred dollars. We are now over our personal/medical budget for the year. I guess I should have allocated more fund into this category. Some of the money in the miscellanous should be enough to cover the excess.

Here's what we spent our money on in July. Overall we are still on target.


Eventhough we had extra expenses in July that was not expected we also had extra income that we weren't expecting. We were able to put a bit of money into our savings and have fully funded the House Repair/Maintenance Fund. Paid off the tuition fee with a bit extra put away for next time. Also put $1,000 away in the holiday fund.
