NtJS Household Budget Update: June 2009

May was the fastest month so far this year! It flew by so fast that we didn't even have time to empty all our envelopes, LOL. I guess I can live with that.

May's Budget Recap:

* We did awesome sticking with our budget
* With the natural gas bill being slashed by over 3/4's of the previous month we had a lot more extra room in our budget
* Garage sales has also helped to stretch our cash even further this past month

June Budget:

* Doubled the amount we are saving for the roof this month (which we doubled the month before as well)
* No out of the ordinary expenses are expected this month
* Budgeted extra for a Fathers Day's surprise and the Mrs.'s birthday

2009 Financial Goals:

* Save for new roof (100% funded) (Purchased all the material and the permit just need to pay for the dumpster and other odd ends)
* Start putting money in Roth again after roof is fully funded (Starting in July)
* Continue to save for kids' college in 529s (Started)
* Continue to do company matching 401k (Started)
* Fully fund Roth and 529s by late summer (Hard to achieve on current income)
* Start aggressively saving for a new car (Put on hold b/c of boiler & medical bills)

How did your month go financially speaking? Better or worse then expected?
