When I started trying to think of my topic for today I began with analyzing my June expenses. I was going to post them to see how “well I did”. It turns out I still overspent, I think. It was hard to tell because I didn’t track the expenditures very well in Quicken or establish an initial budget. I did do a rough comparison and my overall spending is down.
Since I spent June transitioning to YNAB to help me in my budgeting process I’ve decided to forgo the June budget analysis. I am starting fresh with July, which will be my first official month of budgeting and reporting. My focus this month is to funnel money into my emergency fund. I have a debt that was no interest if paid before 9/15/10, but I don’t think I will make it and with a looming tree bill, the emergency fund needs to be my focus.
