Budget report in for week of 2/1/2009

February 9, 2009

Budget update for February – Week of 2/1/2009 – 2/7/2009

Well, let’s take a look at how we did for the week.

Grocery was budgeted at $50.00 / week.

Wal-Mart – $11.87
Wal-greens – $3.25

Under Budget for the week! Woo Hoo!

Car – Oil, Filter, and (Gulp) Serpentine Belt – $148.00 including taxes.
Bear normally does the Oil and filters but in the winter we have this done and I have budgeted for this but not the Serpentine Belt ($89.99). Now, it was $172.00 including taxes, but I had Coupons (yes, I had coupons) $20.00 worth which reduced it down.

SOOOOOOO, I’ll need to tighten up a bit to cover the $89.99 ($79.99 w/coupon).

Fuel for the week was $24.00 a little more than I had wanted it to be but I am still budgeting at the $3.00 price because I believe it will go up again and I want to be ready.

Made the normal bill payments – nothing out of budget there.
So far, so good! We were able to move Bear’s full check into savings – now I may have to wiggle a bit of that back over because of the car service but we will see – my goal for the month is to not do that but I reserve the right if needed!
