September Budget Recap

October 1st, 2016 at 05:09 pm

Overall, September was a good month. I went over budget on the Dog Care category but that was due to vet visit with my fur baby. On the miscellaneous category, I went over but no where near last month. I funded retirement funds, savings funds and Investment Property Slush Fund as planned so I'm pretty excited about that.


$285.00- Hubby's side hustle
$300.00-Extra daily hour at work for 10 days
$30.00- Chase credit card rewards gift cards
and lastly not in the form of money but I still consider it a snowflake. Here is the story: Hubby was cleaning an office at work and inside the garbage can was a brand new Black and Decker Blender and a 17 piece single serve blender still in the box. These two items are worth $66 combined at Amazon. People have no concept of money; I would've put a free sign. Here is a picture:

Today, I spent a lot of time in the kitchen. I made Italian sauce with sausage, vodka sauce, creamy potato soup and cookies and cream bark. I have enough sauce for four meals, vodka sauce for two meals and bark for a at least a week. We all have a sweet tooth here.

I hope to have a more restful Sunday and I hope you do too!

    Nice find! I walk in our neighborhood and am floored the good stuff people throw out. I think they just find it too much work to dispose of in any other way.

    It is frightening what people throw out. Great find for you, though!

    Years ago (I am talking many) my dad got laid off from work. He and a buddy ran an ad in the paper they would haul stuff away -- the kicker was if there was anything they could use, it would be money taken off the bill. My dad came home with a pick up bed full of boxes. They had been wedding gifts and the people had stashed them in the attic. Silver stuff, dishes, appliances -- all like new. My dad's friend got a great 35mm camera out of the deal too. My mom and dad had one heck of a garage sale over someone else's "garbage."
