well heres my May 1-15th budget:
Directv 70 (any day now i should get my rebates applied
Dh car pmt 270
gas 50 (SHOULD be alot less so it will probably go towards food)
water/sewer 58.40 (somehow last month got missed
eating out 40
auto savings 50
+550 2nd half month savings
+40 chase rewards payment
=226.44 kept in savings for snowball (and really the auto savings of 50 also so i have $275 to apply towards my car payment)
i went to my bank yesterday and applied $458 that had been piling up towards my car. the pay off "today" amount is $7876 after the 400 payment.
so our normal payment is 190
+50 (been adding that much all the time)
+100 (savings i can apply since our ef is full)
+275 (this is the very least i can add since bills will go down)
= extra 425/mo i hope! wow that looks really good on paper....
that means in approx 13 months it will be paid off. wooot!
