All set

July 23rd, 2010 at 10:59 am

I think I'm pretty set with our newly revised budget. We need $550 to be kept in envelopes monthly. The rest can go into our checking account and savings should be disbursed at the end of the month. On second thought, I just remember that I have to add a category to the budget for my youngest son's summer camp expenses (lacrosse, wrestling).

It's raining cats and dogs here in north Jersey today. I plan to make a clothes inventory of what my son's needs for the new school year. I already have a coupon for Foot Locker, but I'll have to use it by August 19th, which is two weeks before school begins around here. Tuition for son #1 is due by August 6th; I think it should be around $1700 + books.


My mother is finally scheduled to move to Florida August 3rd (after my Dad's passing). My sister will be traveling to accompany her. I paid for my sister's airfare from Florida to Puerto Rico and for their way back to Florida. Overall cost was about $838.


I hope you have a great weekend.

    I like the envelope system, as well, since it leads to immediate understanding of where things stand! You have great envelopes (and labels), so that has to offer some nice organization and insurance that your envelopes won't sog up if someone spills a glass of orange juice on the counter. Not that that ever happens, right? =)
