Finally getting started

April 30th, 2007 at 07:35 pm

I have finally started taking steps to get myself on a budget. LIke i have said before I am one of the world's best procrastinators.

Go on a side trip with me here: I remember when I learned what the word procrastinate meant. I was in 8th grade and Mrs Bennington had us do book reports and we had to put them in a folder on a shelf when we were finished. She had a sign on shelf that said "Do not procrastinate" I asked her what it meant and she said to look it up in the dictionary. I told her I would do it later. She busted up laughing and told me to do it NOW. I didn't think it was that funny, but have never forgetten what it meant.

OK back to the budget. I found some budget sheets that make sence to me and am now just going to record inflow and outflow for the month of May. and then break everything down at the end of the month and set up a sample budget from there. I just wish someone else would do this for me.

Income today was:
$309.00 Unemployment
$4.00 Kohls,overpayment refund
$5.00 Pinecone payment

outgoing expenses
$80.00 Dr. visit payment(he doesn't take the medical card, YIKES)
$2.00 Foot Dr. co-pay ( he does, yeah)
$4.13 Wendy's for lunch

Out going will end up being more later tonight because I have some bills to pay. THank god for two kids and a large income tax return.

    you should switch doctor, there are decent doctors in my area who even refuse co-pay. There might be one in your.
