I thought it looked kind of ugly just keeping one thing I want an

expense

record for each week so I went ahead and made a new one so this is everything we spent this week including today's bills and expenses that we had to cover so i use target ubi highlighters here we go looby loo here we go lube light ok ok yeah if you look at my pay

check

budget you know cocoa melon is a staple here in this house, so I have a bit of that in me, but what I do is use these to highlight each category that I write, you know if it is eating out if it is gasoline a bill what not and we will see what we spend during the week and in all honesty i don't think this week is going to be that bad btw i didn't say it at first but if you're new to my channel this is your money budget planner on your terms budgeting with christina , is the main basic element that I use here I went on my budget trip, I just made a couple of changes to it, I trace it, I make it pretty and I do it. it's mine so let's see if we don't spend too much last week we had three days without spending so we'll see what we end up working with today last week I wrote them here but I think today I'm going to use some nice stickers and update my calendar just for fun but let's get started so I always start with our account balance and this is our main

check

ing account this is where our bills come out etc. obviously I'm going to highlight my account balance that's where we start let's do the home and I don't have the same colors for every week I just wear what I want as the week comes so we have the home and that's the only. one we got for this week so i can't even remember what we bought 55.01 omg i got it mom brain kind of fierce what we needed to get cause that's a lot of money oh yeah we really needed to stock up on cleaning supplies and stuff, that's what it was let's look at my eating out category which is always fun and games but I don't think it's that bad this week yeah we only had one good on this account but I'm not mad because that's so much better than what we normally have. 1973 I tried taco bell's new veggie fajita veggie burrito and it was really good taco bell is my favorite restaurant so it was nice to find a healthier option there since I'm on a 100 pound weight loss journey let's see what my husband had some personal expenses now even though we don't assign to all of these categories sometimes things just happen unexpectedly so he was on his way home from work and he was feeling very unsteady and wondering if he could stop at the gas station and get something to eat and of course if you're not feeling well go find yourself a bite to eat I'm not telling you no um let's see you have some gas deals what sir sir if you know how far we live from your work we're going to have quite a few gas trades I always forget to do my little highlight down here and sorry if my highlight isn't aesthetically pleasing and to the point I do what I can here so it was 31.49 so you're probably wondering why two gas transactions in the same day so we like to get our gas at Costco because it's so much cheaper that day for example it was 319 a gallon at costco it was 3 45 at the gas station he stopped at for a snack so he put enough to take to costco so we could put a good amount of gas in there oh I'll be happy when gas prices are back to normal man huh is that ever going to happen?

So we have the invoice category, which I don't know why I tracked this down because invoices are what they are, I can't change them. i mean yeah you can work to cut them down a bit and do your thing but for the most part they're fixed but i guess i like to see what our ratio is by the way where do they get those super cool calculators like super click because i would love one they make me so happy i just got this 90 cent sale from walmart? I wonder why I look at everyone who has those and they look so funny um we're going to be doing debt payments as our next category and that was our vehicle payment so I pay a little every week because they're so steep and stuff it's 206.

I got some gas today in my vehicle to get me through the week and I think that's all I'm going to track because here we just have our beginning balance this is our income that we had that we were able to spend money right here this apartment holds refund so if y'all have stayed on my channel you know we got approved for a four bedroom apartment um it was going to be amazing i was so happy about it and we ended up losing it because my husband was making too much money on the welding job and no If we went back down because you lost the welding job and now you're back forklifting you could probably qualify for that again but I just had you refund my re fee tention because I don't know we just decided we are I'll stay here another year and I'm fine with that because our rent is so cheap so I went ahead and got our retained deposit back and even though I'm sad because I was looking forward to it I know it's financially what we have to do now is stay here so I'm not even mad about it and then of course the husband's check that came in and then this week's and right here you'll see we wired some money so like i said first source is our main checking account and then the principal is where we have all our savings for ourselves our children and then this is where our variable expenses are made so we add that income from our checking account to add to our kids savings and such and then we just have a transaction to eat out and like I said I probably should I didn't because I took it out of our sinking fund money ation, but if you look at my paycheck budget before this, you'll see what we allocate, you know, to savings and this is just to keep up with any expenses. we do it off this account so thank you very much for watching.
I don't know how I feel about continuing to make these expense

tracking
