    i sort of have a budget but use my debit card for everything and then i write it in the checkbook so i keep track that way.

    family of 4
    I generally know how much a month l spend on things but i always spend a little extra here and there

    Like for food I figure about $600 a month with a little extra a BJ"s
    Gas: $500-$600
    Misc: $200

    we kind of eat out sporadically so ir eally dont' budget for that either
    To be honest..I never say well..i spent $600 on food this month already so I should watch out the ret of the month
    I guess I need to keep better tabs on what I spend

    so i guess i really don't have a budget..
    Susan sometimes it scares me how much we are alike!

  • How many are in your family? 4
    How much do you budget for what?This is for the month Groceries - $450
    Resturants/Fastfood $125
    Gas $200
    Blow $100
    Clothes us $50
    kids $50
    Toiletries(sp) $125
    Diapers $35
    Paper & cleaning products $50
    Repairs $25
    We also put aside $$ for Christmas/gifts and for vacation

    Do you budget with cash or do you use checks/debit? We use the cash envelopes

    How do you divvy up the portions of your budget? The first month was a lot of guessing, this month it was easier to see where we were over and where we were short last month

    Do you stick to your budget? So far

    I'm so tired today, it took me a full 5 mins to figure out what you meant by "blow".
    I'm thinking you are budgeting for cocaine Melanie!
