It’s that time again, for the weekly budget – doing the bills bi-weekly I am finding takes the stress off of actually doing the budget because I guess I feel I have more wiggle room each week…that does help some and frankly I could use a little of that in my budget.  So without further adieu, here you go!

Table 1 – All bills/monies split by line-item:

 $  514.10 Lara
 $  226.65 Jimmy
 $  740.75
Avail  $  877.55
 $    65.20 02/23, State Farm, Car Insurance, Auto-Draft
 $  812.35
 $    5.00 02/25, OT Solutions, Austin’s Co-Pay
