grrrr. already overspent this month.

January 27th, 2010 at 07:55 pm

Due to various factors, we've spent more than we earned this month. The two biggest factors in overspending are:

- Our income was decreased, as DF has only been working one or two days a week, therefore only bringing in around $200-$400 a week. Frown

- Instead of working, he has decided to be useful around the house and started on a couple of our renovation plans. While that's GREAT, it meant we took money out of our buffer to pay for materials. *sigh*

It's kind of like a catch 22: he's not working, so it's the best time to do these things, but it's actually the worst time to do these things BECAUSE he's not working (and so it's eating up our funds!) Big Grin

He has nearly finished downstairs. I want to post pictures, but I am waiting until the weatherboards have been painted. At the moment they look horrible, as we re-used them from DF's dads house and they only have an undercoat of paint on them - looks somewhat like we took them off an abandoned house - dirty and a bit gross... Big Grin But still, the house looks very different. So, picture soon, I promise!

    Must feel weird to overspend, but rationally it does sound like the best use of DF's time. Smile

    I love pictures! and what is that saying you either have enough time or money, but never at the same time!
