All Done For March! The Good, Bad, and Not So Ugly

I can't believe it, it is only March 23 and the books are closed for the month! It is a great feeling to be paying things online now. I can immediately get things paid as soon as there is available cash. For those of you who have not started paying your bills online, I would encourage you to give it a try. I've been nothing but impressed by the system since I started doing it. I find that I can easily keep track of what is due and make sure that it gets paid on time, every time. Not to mention the amount of money I am saving in stamps.

As for the actual numbers, those are good as well. Total expenses for the month are down about 200 bucks from last month.  And debt is continuing to decrease as loans are payed down. There's still a long way to go, but the extra money coming in recently has really helped out a lot. The one negative though is that the average so far for this year seems to indicate that household expenses have gone up way more than the 0.03 percent that I expected due to inflation. This means that there is either too much extra spending going on or that I need to re-think my value for inflation on household expenses.
