Last month is the single most expensive month of my entire life! It this month’s real life family budget update I am going to show you how we are adjusting to some major financial changes in our family!
WE BOUGHT OUR FIRST HOUSE!!! Although we threw down more cash then we have ever done before in entire life, it really doesn’t feel like much has changed!
We will be more than doubling what we pay for rent with our new mortgage payment (including taxes, PMI, and insurance). That means we need to make some changes with our budget.
The best thing is that because we have already lowered our expenses, paid off all our debt, and have been putting thousands of dollars in savings each month, the change won’t affect on our lifestyle much at all!Continue Reading →
The key to keeping a budget that you can actually stick to, is to keep it evolving with your family. As much as I’m sure you would love to “set it and forget it”, that’s just not realistic. But the good news is that updating your budget is not hard at all! That’s what I am showing you in this month’s budget update!
We have some major changes coming up in relation to our family finances! As in, we hopefully will be buying a house!!! Fingers crossed! Be sure to keep up to date on our house hunt updates and to get all the details in real-time by following me on Instagram.
This new change will increase our “rent” from $1,200 a month to just around $2,800 a month. Super crazy!
It’s that time of the month again where we vulnerably open up our bank account and share with you in our budget update everything that went in and out of our real life budget over the last 30 days.
With hubby’s schedule changing it is leaving even less time for date nights or family time where all five of us can be together at the same time. It’s things like this that have always caused speed bumps in our budget in unexpected ways.
