One of the advantages to keeping a written budget is that you get to see exactly where your money is going. So, while I’m not going to bore you with the numbers, I thought I would share where our money is going, from most spent on a category, to least spent. It’s enlightening, to be sure!
- Rent (that’s right, we spend more on childcare and groceries than rent)
- Student loans
- Utilities (electricity, water, internet and phone)
- Home / car insurance (bundled together)
- Fixed rate loan to pay off the American credit cards
- Car payment
- Eating out
- Miscellaneous stuff
Where does your money go?
