Monthly Money Check In
Finances are an ever growing thing. Once again February was a good month. Firstly we got paid out from the Insurance Company for our car accident. Secondly we didn't do anything stupid during the month.
Here's the slowly increasing percentage bar
WHAT WE HAVE DONE
Bought new Cellphones, gosh these were expensive, but so worth it. I am so happy to have a new phone!! We went with the Google Nexus 6P, I got white.
I also went to the eye doctor and got a new prescription for contacts. I would have used my last prescription that I got in August BUT in the states, you can't order contacts without them contacting your Doctor first. Rendering my prescription from Canada useless.
THINGS WE NEED
Teeth Cleaning - I got one just before the wedding, that's over a year ago, I want a cleaning! Desktop Monitors New Computers Shoe Rack More Frames Kitchen Table, bench and chairs (a table big and sturdy enough for gaming)
WHAT WE ARE PRIORITIZING THIS MONTH
Teething Cleaning And Travel Budget
Making the smart choices...
WHAT I’D LOVE
Six months of bill expenses saved up $5000 Travel Fund $5000 Pet Fund All accounts to have a consistent balance of $500
This month we pooled our spending money together and got a CSA with a friend. I don't know what CSA stands for but basically it's a box of veggies delivered to a specific place once a week and you get veggies. A TON of veggies. We decided to split the standard box with a friend and got it on a sale. Total cost was $550.50, divided in half means we spent $275.25 on weekly veggies for 20 weeks. I'll probably post more when we start getting the boxes (it's starts in June). I am so excited!!
Cooking at home, a never-ending battle for me. Coming up with food I want to eat is difficult. The feature image is one such meal; Potato Gratin. This is related to money because we struggled again to stay within our food budget... gah!
