June Round-up

>> Wednesday, June 17, 2009

Moving has got to be one of the most wasteful things we do, speaking both environmentally and economically. The only reason we're overbudget this month is because we rented a moving truck and bought food for the people who helped us move.

The energy amount is lower than usual this month because it doesn't include our gas bill. I think we'll be charged double next month because we transferred our service. Also, this electricity bill is for our apartment. I'm scared to see what it's going to be like in our house, which has an attic and a crawlspace.

Monthly Spending (budgeted amount in parentheses)

  • Groceries: $690.73 ($500)
  • Transportation: $145.34 ($300.00)
  • Energy: $61.90 ($150)
  • Water/Sewer: $20.26 ($50)
  • Entertainment/Miscellaneous: $530.12 ($300)
  • Clothes: $0 (no set budget)
  • TOTAL: $1,448.35 ($1,300)

Trash Report: My careful record of our trash bags got lost in the move, so no report this month. But exciting news - I now have my very own recycling bin!

More whining...My list of blog ideas is trapped on my dead laptop, and my brain isn't working well enough to come up with some new goals right now, so I'm leaving that part out of this round-up also.
