We're doing well thus far! I came in $3 under for my January grocery budget, and we already paid our car insurance through August.

Great job!!!!

We are doing really well. It took a lot to move into our new place, but we planned for it and our using our tax refund in good ways. We have more of a plan for this year than last.

So far so good I guess. Just start this week paying a daycare bill that will go from $95 a week to $206 because the baby started yesterday. That will defintely make things tight. I realized just how tight last week when I realized what I make in a month and just how much will go out in bills each month ;( Stressing me a little, but I will make my self insane over it if I keep it up. Just tightening the buckles a little more and now that I am back to work I can rack up some overtime which is good. I am waiting on one 1099 form to get to me so I can do our tax return...drives me nuts each year cause it is the last thing I wait on.

Spending has been so-so, but I've saved $130 a month by switching car insurance, and by downgrading a few re-occurring bills. This is very important because we'll be taking a $18000 pay cut if DH gets the job he interviewed for today.
