The June Figures are in....

Our goal is to let you know how much money we spent in some of our various envelopes. We put a certain amount into each envelope every month when we get our retirement money/Social Security check. The idea is to accumulate money in each envelope so that we will have the money in the envelope to purchase the items in that envelope.For instance, we don't include a car payment.  We will be building up that envelope so that we can hopefully pay cash for the next car.  Seeing that amount doesn't help other people decide if a permanent part-time camping arrangement is for you.  For more on envelope budgeting see out page under the tabs.
