Has everyone been sticking to their budgets? Any bumps in the road or triumphs to share? :)

I've slipped a little on the Springtime yard fix-ups, but I think all of that work (and spending) is finished now. Still need to work on the grocery bill (using what I already have first), and I also need to stay away from the McDonalds Drive-thru. ;-) My bank account and my waistline will thank me. LOL! :-D

Haven''t really focused on the budget. Granted we don't have a good excuse, but I guess you could say life, or the Army got in the way.


We are prepping to move again! This time to Mississippi. Since I've belonged to this board I will have lived in 4 states. Washington, Pennsylvania, New Jersey, and soon to be Mississippi.


Once we get there, I need to plan DDs 1ST Bday!!! I can't believe its been a year already! Watch out Coleen time flys!!! I don't have a budget amount, but I am making the cake, and its just a small party, grandparents, and uncles, and cousins. One uncle won't make it, so its

I've been spending too much on food, which now I'm tracking exactly where the money that I have taken out of my account as cash is going is even more noticeable. I haven't had a chance to review my budget beyond noticing that.
I have a couple of ideas about how to keep my budget on track, but I want to try them out before sharing them (I'll share them whether they work or not, just want to see how they work for me first).

Colleen, I agree with Vanessa - time will fly. My aunt went to back to work today after 5 months of maternity leave and I swear that it feels like my cousin was only born last week.
