Well, I wasn't here for the start of the year, but really, nothing much is different.
My goal for the rest of 2009 is to get $1620 into my sinking funds account and $540 into the college book fund account. If I can do this then I'll be able to start a new budget in the fall.
Well, it looks like I did a review at 1st quarter and not mid-year, so here is what I posted previously as my goals and 1st quarter update
Here are my goals and analysis. 1st quarter in green, 2nd quarter progress in red, and 3rd quarter in blue.........
Financial: Use as little as possible from our *job EF*. Keep scrutinizing the budget every month to see where we can save some $$. Hard to believe, but after 7 months of dh being out of work, we have still NOT touched our *job EF*. Don't ask me how because I can barely believe that myself!! Just goes to show how bare-bones our budget already was because we have not made that many drastic changes. One other financial biggie we've done since the 1st of the year is pay off our travel trailer, about 4-1/2 years early; I decided to go ahead & pull the $$ out of savings and be done with it (even w/dh out of work). So we're back to only mortgage
