January 2019 Expense Report

Family of Five – Monthly Expense Report – January 2019

Okay, so here is my very first attempt at an expense report. This is our variable spending for the month of January 2019. By variable spending, I am referring to those areas of our budget where we have some choice in what to spend. This does not include any of our fixed expenses like mortgage, taxes, insurance, utilities, etc.

Christmas/Gifts$80.00$73.91$6.09
Misc/Other$20.00$5.00$15.00
Home Expense$50.00$36.03$13.97

Some factors in this month’s budget included a five weekly trips to the grocery store, a kids birthday party, very few kids sports & activities, and me being extremely sick for part of the month.
