Week Ending 02.17.13 Budget

Posted: February 14, 2013 in Budgets

Here’s the first of many to follow, our Weekly Budget – my Weeks will run Monday to Sunday, like my pay periods – this is this week’s Mock-up Budget, right now I have roughly $12 sitting in the bank, the starting amount of $774.89 does not include that $12 – as I don’t know 100% what the pay will look like, I can only use what I do know based off of what was previously paid to us for weeks with a similar hours count:

The first set of columns is the line item break-down  and the second set of columns is the simpler version where the Gas, Groceries, Jimmy’s Weekly Monies and our Dinner Expense is lumped into one cash amount that I’ll withdraw from the bank Friday evening.  We’ve gone the cash route for these as it eliminates un-necessary spending on items we think we need but eventually discover we truly did not need.

I will add an update on Saturday of the actual numbers…it intimidates me slightly to put the actual numbers out there electronically as we’ve not had the best of luck with electronic budgets and checkbooks – it would seem they curse us, so I am putting this out there with good faith that we’ll be ok…just ok…
