Here is the budget for November 16th through December 15th.

December 2010
Laundry 40
Rent 1000
Groceries 180 (I am having a pantry challenge for the first two weeks of this budget, which is why this number is so low)
ComEd 40
AT & T 28
Comcast 85
Son’s school 549
Son’s after school language program 120
Son’s dance class 48
Misc. 50
Gas/Transportation 120
Restaurant 75
Entertainment 30
Student Loan 192
Life insurance 77
Daughter’s Health Insurance 40
Husband’s spending money 20
My spending money 20
Weight Watchers 40
Tithes Private
TOTAL $2754

Starting January 1st, we will no longer have my income.  That will make us a little more than $1,200 short each month.  My husband is applying for part-time jobs, but I am also doing my part to put money aside as I want to try to avoid dipping into emergency savings. 

So far I have saved for January:

360.39 – refund from son’s old school
130.10 – payment for article writing
125.00 – payment for book review
200.00 – saved from my November pantry challenge
815.49  Total saved for January thus far
