This is the second weekly budget that I’m putting together. I had a look at the previous week’s results and I have to say that I’m quite impressed with the end result. I think that with a little bit of effort I should be able to meet similar numbers. I’ll post an assessment of my last week’s spending tomorrow. Below is my planned budget for this upcoming week.
June 2 – 8
A couple items on the list are changed lower, most notably the Alcohol and Misc spending. I’m expecting that I’ll be able to bring these lower with a bit of effort. I’ve kept the Lunch spending at the same level for this week mostly because I want to get into the habit of bringing my lunch. The allocated $20 should let me grab lunch out 3 times if I’m careful. I’ve allocated a bit more for food because we didn’t buy any groceries for the upcoming week and I’m expecting there will be some extra spending. The one main item that I know will go up this week is my transportation spending. This is because my monthly parking costs are coming in.
Overall I believe that this budget is achievable. Don’t forget to drop a comment on this post or the contest announcement post from yesterday to be considered for the weekly budget contest. Wish me luck!
