Our 2006 Budget By Month

Below you will find our personal budget for 2006. We tried to include every possible expense we could think of so that we would not have any surprises.

At the time, we didn't feel that we would use the almost $35,000 for the year we had budgeted. We believed that $30,000 should have been plenty and we tried to get through the year on less.

UPDATE: Well, we were wrong. We ended up using almost our entire budget for 2006. We had some unexpected expenses and spent money on more toys and accessories that we didn't know we needed or wanted. For a summary of how we did against this budget, check out Our 2006 Actual Expenses page. That page includes explanations of our major differences between the Budget and Actual Expenses.
