May Budget

Here's where we're looking at for our May budget:

$396 Tithe
$990 Mortgage
$300 Auto Gas
$145 Home Gas
$40 House Phone
$40 Water
$235 Electric
$158 Cell Phone
$95 Life Insurance
$60 Previous employer Chargebacks (done this month!)
$10 Dr. Bill
$30 Wife's Fun Money
$30 My Fun Money
$30 Dining Out
$75 Baby/Wife Clothing
$30 Toiletries
$40 Toll Device Replenish (my jobs are having me drive more)
$1000 Savings
$256 Debt Snowball

Total: $3960

We have about $110 left to be caught up with the Electricity, then the bill will be a normal amount each month. The only two non-recurring items this month is the clothing money (my wife is making cloth diapers for our daughter and my wife will need nursing bras) and the toll replenish. This budget is pretty much our ideal budget, with $2379 going to normal monthly expenses, $115 to non-monthly recurring expenses, and the rest going to debt or savings.
