year end

All posts tagged year end

It’s a new month and the end of 2013! Woot! Because of that, this will be a longer than normal post. I won’t go into much detail as far as how we did in December, other than to say my wife had a paycheck that was only $100 less than mine this month. November we barely got by but December we killed it. We were able to pay for a $600+ Verizon bill (done with them now!), get our saving back up to $1,000+ and still pay a few hundred toward debt!



Here is a breakdown of how much we made and how we spent our money in 2013. This is kinda scary to put out on the internet like this but that’s what this blog is for. Granted this information is from Mint and requires me to put things in the correct budget categories, so it may not be 100% accurate. It’s crazy to see where you spent all your money. I’ll go over a break down next week.
