I’ve been absent for some time. This was due to our holiday, due to working on the website, and due to something else, which I’ll tell you about in a moment. For now, though, it’s time for me to share with you our May 2018 budget report!

March was a month of financial ups and downs, but with careful spending, we ended the month with two home-delivered pizzas (via an online deal, naturally!). Continue reading “Our March 2018 Budget Report”
Hi, budgeteers! Here’s a new post about budgeting: ‘Easy budgeting for overwhelmed or lazy people’! Does that sound like something you could use?
