is pretty simple.
1. Track everything. Again. For some perverse reason, I’m dying to see how we stack up against the 60 per cent solution budget.
2. Keep it minimal. We should be able to get by on around $2500 in a month. We haven’t been, for many reasons. Three-fortnight months (rent and groceries, yowch). Birthdays and special occasions. Car repairs. Concert tickets.Work expenses/clothing. Replacing stolen goods.
BUT, I’m pretty sure November is not a long month. We have no birthdays or anniversaries. So hopefully rent, groceries, gas and a bit of fun and we can keep it frugal.
In other news…thanks to Consumerism Commentary for including me in this week’s Carnival of Personal Finance 🙂
