Budget Breakdown April 16-30

$170 utilities
$100 groceries
$100 gas
$1,327 emergency fund
$200 pet expenses
$200 spending
$33 alarm
$250 house/furniture
$150 mom.

The utilities were low this month!  It's probably the last month for the low bill though.  It's already starting to get hot in Florida.  It might be in the 90s this week.

I pulled $3,900 from my emergency savings to put into my Roth IRA for my 2015 contributions. (Had to beat that April 18, 2016 deadline.) So now I am in the process of paying that money back to my emergency fund before I start making contributions for 2016.

Slowly, but surely I am making progress. I'm impatient and would like everything done right now, but slow and steady wins the race. Right?

    1. Thank you! I wrestled with the decision as to whether to pull the money out of savings to max it out, but I think I did the right thing.
