Default Jumpin' Jubilant Low Spend June

Well my May didn't end so miraculously with unexpected expenses regarding a laptop and our well house.......but it could have been worse and I'm grateful that it wasn't.

My goal for the month of June is to keep ALL spending to a minimum. We leave in 4 1/2 weeks for vacation and any extra cash that I can accumulate will be going with us.

Do you have specific saving/spending goals for the month? I'm looking forward to fresh garden produce which will reduce my weekly grocery spending greatly. I'm also looking forward to spending 7 days with my toes in the sand and my rear planted in my beach chair

Ready? Set? Here we go! Good luck to all

We are saving to go to Las Vegas next spring, and either a trip to WA State or to Disney in CA in the fall. We decided that we would get each other small gifts for birthday/christmas/etc... and put extra towards our trips.

We get a third paycheck this month, so we are going to do some stockup and I will be doing some OAMC so that we don't have to put as much in our grocery budget for a few months

I am planning on a low spend June as well.

Planning a very low spend June. Have to pay a big bill in July and would love to be able to save enough for a trip for our anniversary that month as well. I think I'm pretty set on everything except for perishibles and what ever curve balls life tosses my way.

I will be joining also! We have a trip planned for Disney World in July so we really need to save up as much as we can. I hope to learn some tips from you all!

Please take a look at my wishlist! If there are ever any baby q's you need from inserts, chances are I have them & won't use them!

joining in here as well. Hopefully Jun will be a no spend at all for us---unless the property connected to our lake property is about to become available and I want to have cash on hand to pay for that. That should give us plenty of room to retire on!

Neicepie-Hope you enjoy Myrtle Beach. I cannot wait to go again-but if we go-my kids say they will fly instead of drive.

June will not be low spend for us. I know this but planned ahead of time. I believe I can stick to the budget and that's the important thing to me.

April and May were both expensive months for us. We are planning to get three stray cats spayed/neutered next week and I need two new front tires on my car. I know those are two expenses we have planned for thus far for June. Hopefully, our other spending will be lower this month.

I need several LOW or NO spend months - but living in sunny S. Florida, I know that isn't going to happen. So my goal is to keep my grocery bill at around $50 per week, no more than $300 for the month. IF I accomplish that I'll be happy, but I'm going in realistic knowing it probably won't happen.
