Weekly Budget – Week 8 (July 14-20)

This week’s budget is going to be a bit tighter than the previous few mostly because I’m out of money and I have to be really right with my money. Hopefully an expense cheque comes in this week and I’ll be able to balance things out a bit more. Regardless I need to start tightening my belt financially until more money starts to pour in. I’ve been getting better at this budgeting thing and I think that I’ll be able to manage things better going forward. The past few weeks have been a bit of a bouncy ride but last week was the first time I was under budget overall which is great.

I’ve lowered a few line items from last week to this week and hopefully I’ll be able to keep myself in check. Here are this week’s budget numbers:

Weekly Budget
July 14-20
Budget Actual
Alcohol $25.00
Food-Lunch $20.00
Food $80.00
Gas $20.00
Entertainment $0.00
Smokes $30.00
Misc $50.00
Transportation $25.00
Total $250.00

The biggest drops from last week to this week are food and primarily gas. I don’t have a lot of traveling around to do so I’m not planning on putting much gas into the car. I’ve noticed that I’ve been spending less money on food so it makes sense to drop this back to previous numbers. Hopefully everything will work out nicely and I’ll be able to stay within the $250 that I’m budgeting for this week. Wish me luck!

Note: Last weeks budget assessment will be posted early tomorrow morning.
