Here's the monthly budget for Plan Bean, in case you don't remember:
And here's what really happened:
Groceries: $405.68 (-$114.32) YAY!
Gas: $277.36 (+$104.03) I have some excuses!
Date: $0 (-$40) I'm changing this!
Other $799.49 (+$474.49) More excuses! Legitimate ones! According to me!
You see, there were two trips to Pennsylvania in November, both of which were expected, so (since I'm the boss of this money show) I'm taking them out of the equation.
Other: $385.25 (+$60.25)
There was also a work-related
Gas: $177.36 (+40.30)
And since I'm throwing therefores around like they're candy at the Santa Claus parade,
THEREFORE WE'RE UNDER BUDGET BY $53.77! AND I'M CAPSYELLING! BUT I DON'T CARE!
What are we going to do with our enormous surplus, you manage to ask, once the ringing in your ears calms down? We're going to carry it forward and put it towards avoiding the dreaded overdraft in December.
And the neglected date night? We had three in November, we just didn't happen to go anywhere for them, and (like October) I never bothered to separate out the expenses. Lazy? Yes. Delicious? Also yes.
Hm. That sounded strange.
See me care.
