Came in over budget

New? Start here …

Official payday is when the deposit hits our bank account. I see the pending deposit so it’s time to look at budget category balances. Fuel was over budget by $3.67. It seemed odd but I remembered we drove to our son’s house in Atlanta last weekend.

But heavens to Betsy! Food is actually under budget by about $15. I moved enough to fuel to zero it. You could pick me up off the floor.  If gas starts going up again, we may have to rework the regular budget.

Part of playing the Money Game is staying on or under budget so that the money in the Money Game fund can be used to buy and sell should a good deal present itself.

Are any of you playing? I’m finding it so much easier to keep the budget on track since I’ve been playing the game.  Has this been your experience?

Level Completed: 100 out of 251 Total Balance: $671.09
Our Money Game fund has increased 31.62% so far this month.

Have fun, grow money and level up!
