Budget meetings

Craig and I [try to] have monthly budget “meetings”.  Basically we pull up our budget spreadsheet before the beginning of the new month to talk about what expenses we have that month that are different than other months and what areas we need to work on spending less.  We have been thinking, though, with all the big life changes in the next few months we should start planning for the next few months.

The other night we had a budget meeting and talked through what we needed to save up in the next few months… selling our house, buying a new house, expenses for the new house, repairs/new purchases for the new house, having a baby, my maternity leave, Jeff’s wedding.  Whew.  I know we will make changes as each month comes up.  But it helps to know what is coming and what we need to plan for.
