My focus for June is to get decluttering started and follow our budget. I started decluttering Thursday night by going through a bag sitting along a wall in my bedroom. This wall is a pit stop for clutter. The bag I went through had some fabric for an outfit I bought last year I want to make. I cut out the pattern pieces and will start sewing today.
In an effort to reduce our monthly expenses;
- The hubs took our cable boxes to the cable company today so we are down to basic cable. In the summer time who really needs all those channels?
- We canceled a service we really have not needed.
- We dropped the third cell phone line on our plan as the kids have phones now paid by their mom.
- We went on the PUD monthly plan which spreads what you spend out over the year in twelve equal payments.
As far as our budget goes, we did not pay any extra on the debt, total for eating out was $108.13 and coffee was $172.29. We hope to stick to Starbucks only on the weekends and bring coffee from home during the work week.
I bought the 30 Day Shred video by Jillian Michaels and have done that about five times. It really kicks my but!
We have some expenses this month; a vet visit, Father's Day and my parents 40th anniversary. We have those items budgeted in so adding about $200 to our personal loan will help getit paid down faster so we can refinance in July.
Well, got to get to some gardening and sewing!
