2 Different Things That Are Basically The Same

I made a projected budget. It's relatively slapdash but frankly there wasn't a lot of wiggle room. Please let me know what you think. Am I kidding myself given what I found out about last month? The total amount available has been raised slightly because I got a raise to cover the boost in the cost of my health care.

Month Target

Mortgage $750
Maintenance $690
Investment $150
Dining Out $150
Groceries $200
Craft $100
Transportation $150
Phone $55
Cable w/internet $114
Health $1,000
Entertainment $100
Pets $100
Misc. $50
Gifts $27
Total $3,636

Here's the damage for today:

Pet food: $16.38
All the mussels I could eat + tax & tip: $12

Total: $28.38

  1. Your health insurance is 1k? Holy smokes. Is that your contribution to family insurance, or something?

    I didn't realize we were the same age, btw.
