(Forgive the formatting, I usually do this on my lunch hour at work and I'm home on my Mac right now. I'm not quite as good in Numbers as I am in Excel)
The other nice thing about thing about the progress on here is that it doesn't take into account of money that's outside of my accounts. Earlier in December I bought $200 worth of grocery store gift cards to be used in the upcoming months, and recently I took a bit of money out to start my budget envelopes. That money isn't accounted for up above. Additionally, many of you probably read Trent's post over at the Simple Dollar about cleaning and restocking a pantry:
It was something I hadn't done in quite a while, and after looking at my cupboards I realized it was badly needed. Over the last 2 days I've gone to various grocers (2 ethnic grocers and my usual), restocking the things I'll need to make meals over the next few months. It's so nice having a stocked kitchen again!
After a couple very stressful months when it comes to my finances, this feels like a happy end to the year. I have a warm home, full cupboards, and a couple dollars in my pocket to look after my needs. What a great way to ring in the new year. Have a great end to 2010 every one! I look forward to spending 2011 with you all!
