Weekly Budget Report

Because we only have $150 in our buffer, and a bunch of expenses, it looks like we’re going to overspend this month too.  I mean, we increased fuel, alcohol, and restaurants because we’re meeting up with a bunch of people this month (so many baby showers!) but I’m still not sure if it’s going to be enough.  We’re already skating close to the line on vacation, and we’re only on the first full day of travel.

The spouse also got a $350 bonus at work that we’re going to put towards a new bed frame when we move, so we have to be careful not to spend so much in household goods that we spend our bed money.  Or I guess we’ll have to keep refilling it.

Eventually I’d like to put together a “baby budget” just to see how much we’ve spent on baby stuff in the run-up to the birth.  It might be worth it to have a baby line item in the budget, but for whatever reason I haven’t done that yet.
