Only two overages this month:
- Vehicle: I decided to get my front seats upholstered, to the tune of $600 (half of which I paid as a deposit in April, the rest of which I will pay tomorrow). I have been planning to do this for some time and simply hadn't explicitly placed it in the budget. The balance will be included in May's budget.
- Medical: I had a filling that came out in March, so that obviously had to be taken care of. Insurance and billing took about a month to catch up.
Groceries for The Maker's Diet are more expensive than I had been eating. I spent more than the last couple months but my grocery/entertainment category still came out about $20 under budgeted.
I definitely need to set up a flexible spending account next year - all the medical expenses could be pre-tax if I had taken the time to do so.
