Back To Basics

Today is the last day of April, so I will be putting together a summary of our budget vs. actual spending this month. I have been using the new Pear Budget software - which I love! (not a paid endorsement - just my own opinion.) Pear Budget is now finished with the beta phase and will be charging $3 a month for their software. I love it so much that I think I am going to cough up the money.

I will also post our May budget.

Tomorrow is the first of May. My main goal for May is to get back to the basics. I plan to make a trip to the bank to withdraw the cash we will need to fund our envelopes. The envelope system has been a great help to us in sticking to the budget, so I want to be sure to start next month out on the right track.
