Every Friday I post on my weekly income and expenses in an effort to keep on track of my budget for the month. By breaking down my transactions on a weekly basis I can see where my money is going and see if I am going to be able to stay under my total budget for the month.

I bought more food this week and I am now over the food budget by $9.25. Since I am working with a rolling budget I will see if that amount can come from the remainder of the gas budget since I have been under the gas budget for the last few months. As long as I am under the total budget for the month I will be ok even though I have gone over the food budget.

I still have a bit left on the budget but the only thing I have left to pay is the phone bill and the rest is discretionary spending for things like gas etc. I do have tuition for summer classes coming up as well but all my tuition gets paid out of a dedicated account and is not part of the monthly budget.
