Here comes the mid-month review.
Mortgage - Successfully doubled-up
Retirement/Emergency Savings - On Track
House Maintenance - Savings are up to $1,021.49. I could easily replace my water heater if it went at this point.
Housing Taxes/Insurance – Taxes savings are at $634.60 with the bill (about $1,200 due by the end of June. There was a nice jump thanks to some provincial tax refunds. Insurance is on Track
Big Ticket Items - $143.14 in savings, just a bit frustraiting that this is growing so slowly.
Travel - On Track
Health Insurance - Spent
Bus Pass - Spent
Cell Phone/Internet - Bills have not yet arrived, but I have a bit extra hanging around in this category just in case.
Car Savings - Going well, and I am so not in a rush to get a car.
Train - $89 still there. Almost two sets of round trip tickets.
Other Transportation - $90.70 set aside, my city has an awesome bus system.
Utilities – Billing cycle got a bit convoluted this month, I’ve already paid and I still have $146.86 for next month.
Food - $169.42 left. Yes, I know there is a ridiculous amount here, but I’m not sure of the costs of starting a garden so I’ll leave the excess for a bit.
Miscellaneous - $2.09 left. Plus a bit in my wallet.
Entertainment - $5. Lucky the library doesn’t cost me or I’d be broke!
Social/Sports - $10, slowly saving for next years dues.
Clothes - $40
Gifts - $18.73.
Financial Planning - $25 For some reason they haven’t started my monthly deductions. Oh well.
Little and big seem to be on track, and I can happily report that my houseguest has paid her rent ($420) and my double up mortgage payment for the next month is ready to go!
