ETT Budget Breakdown with YNAB – Food

I love seeing how other people budget, getting down to the nitty-gritty of their categories and numbers, but I don’t feel it is fair to gain value out of what others are contributing without contributing something ourselves. As promised, here is the sixth Budget Breakdown for the Enough Time Machine. This represents how much we budget per month, not necessarily how much we spend. This week we are looking at Food.   The food category in our budget is our Achilles heel. We spend totally ridiculous amounts on food; I feel so ashamed, I don’t really want to put this post on the Internet. It’s like losing weight – we know exactly what we should do to reduce ...

ETT Budget Breakdown with YNAB – Pets

I love seeing how other people budget, getting down to the nitty-gritty of their categories and numbers, but I don’t feel it is fair to gain value out of what others are contributing without contributing something ourselves. As promised, here is the fifth Budget Breakdown for the Enough Time Machine. This represents how much we budget per month, not necessarily how much we spend. This week we are looking at Pets. Pets, animal companions, fur babies – the value that they bring to our lives is immeasurable. At this point in time, we have 2 animal companions, cats (pseudo)named Frank and Jelly. The inspiration for Frank’s Internet anonymity moniker is the main character of the British TV show, Shameless. ... Show Me More!

Your Budget Isn’t Out To Get You

We are about halfway through our exploration of the Budget nebula, but we skirted a little too close to an asteroid field, so while we are dead in space effecting repairs it is time for a closer look at the properties of a budget. This was inspired by the post of another Aussie blogger – When The Path Forks (WTPF), named Budget Blunders. Feel free to remove your seatbelt and duck across in the shuttle for a read. We are currently caught in stasis, so you have all the time in the multi-verse. Back and comfortably strapped in? While the post is full of truisms and wisdom regarding the path ... Show Me More!

ETT Budget Breakdown with YNAB – Expenses

I love seeing how other people budget, getting down to the nitty-gritty of their categories and numbers, but I don’t feel it is fair to gain value out of what others are contributing without contributing something ourselves. As promised, here is the fourth Budget Breakdown for the Enough Time Machine. This represents how much we budget per month, not necessarily how much we spend. This week we are looking at Expenses. The three categories (bills, insurance, transport) we have investigated so far have all been known expenses. We know what they are, how much they will cost to a fair degree of accuracy, and when they come out of our account (whether monthly, quarterly or annually). This is ... Show Me More!

ETT Budget Breakdown with YNAB – Transport

I love seeing how other people budget, getting down to the nitty-gritty of their categories and numbers, but I don’t feel it is fair to gain value out of what others are contributing without contributing something ourselves. As promised, here is the third Budget Breakdown for the Enough Time Machine. This represents how much we budget per month, not necessarily how much we spend. This week we are looking at Transport. Parking $10. This amount is an estimate, because we use parking intermittently. We are lucky enough not to have to regularly pay for parking. Mr. ETT’s workplace covers his parking costs, while I catch the train to work to avoid parking fees (and total lack of parking – the ...
