The moment to do my monthly budget review for May has arrived. A couple of my expenses has been put on hold because of the lockdown. As always I will follow the upcoming steps:
- I start by reviewing my personal expenses
- Then I review my sinking funds & jars
- I review my debt
- And then I review my emergency fund
I start by reviewing my personal expenses
In May I budgeted €1.004,10 for my personal expenses. My gym and movie membership is still on hold. I didn’t need to pay in May. My actual expenses were €962,10 in May.
There was a difference between my budgeted and actual budget of €42,-.
- gym membership is normally €21,-. Because of the crisis I cannot go to the gym so I put my payments on hold and didn’t need to pay this month
- movie membership is normally €21,-. Because of the crisis I cannot go to the so I put my payments on hold and didn’t need to pay this month
Then I review my sinking funds & jars
My sinking funds are filled and I didn’t need to use it.
I used my going out jar to compensate for my groceries jar.
I bought some essentials from my personal care jar and didn’t use my play jar.
I review my debt
At the moment I only pay the minimal amount of €59,71 towards my student loan. My extra payments are going towards my emergency fund. My current balance is €5.467,30. I expect to be debt free by the end of 2020.
And then I review my emergency fund
I added €900,- to my emergency fund. My current balance is €2800,22. I expect to reach my goal end of August this year.
How did you do on your budget this month?
