And finally I have a free moment on this cold snowy day to post my new budget. We finally got some groceries!
I'm happy to report that most of our Christmas shopping has been completed. We managed to snag one present while at the supermarket and my fiance used his Christmas savings to buy most of the rest, minus a present I got for my parents.
Still have a little more to do...plus an office grab bag ($20), supplies for the office holiday party, a bottle of wine for a group holiday party, and materials for a Cookie Swap. Don't you just love the holidays?
Anyway, so here's where my money will be going over the next two weeks.
Starting Balance = $1267
Groceries! - 100
Sallie Mae - 407
Defaulted Student Loan - 260
Nice Collection Agency - 125
Sprint - 74
Holiday Shopping & Parties - 200
Misc. - 101
We got some less than good news about our refinance, but I'm waiting on more details before I post about that.
Wedding savings is on hold most likely until the new year due to yet another recent development but some wedding spending will be going on very soon too (time to pay those installment payments!).
For those of you in cold regions of the world, stay warm, and for those of you in the warmer areas, count your blessings!
