“A budget tells us what we can’t afford, but it doesn’t keep us from buying it”
How scary is it that I haven’t posted one of these since May I think…! Phew. Well not much has changed financially for us, still cant get money to grow on trees so our aim is just to stretch Mr Fire’s salary to cover our monthly expenses.
Income October 2018
Remember this doesn’t include side hustles as it has its own little report for now since we are putting our focus towards them.
Some explaining is required around last months expenses:
Food and Household
Remember all my talk round splitting them up? Well I haven’t been doing quite so well with this! It is rather high but we’ve been sneaking Littlest Little Miss Fire’s Christmas presents in plus we got hit with two of her friends birthdays…..
I think its a mistake to count protein powder as fun!
Eeek! Mr Fire’s car tax was due and his final dentist’s bill.
Littlest Little Miss Fire
The littlest one attended a Halloween party and needed a costume along with other things.
As you can see we came up short from Mr Fire’s salary so he generously “donated” some of his Each Way sniping winnings.
We are having a relocation of funds for this months budget so hopefully we can stick to it.
I’m not bothering with our savings rate especially since we’ve actually gone over and it seems like a waste of time posting a negative number!
