Hi I love reading you blog. I have a quick question for you.
You are correct. My “other” budget includes regular, mostly “want to have” expenses that wouldn't come out of the family budget.
Our family budget pays for bills (medical, utilities, home and car repairs, insurance, mortgage, etc.). My other budget is for expenses like hair cuts, school clothes, going out for lunch, pedicures, etc. Copays come out of our family budget.
To clarify even further, I have updated my BUDGET POST and went into more detail in the post, including a list of what each budget includes in our house. Check it out and feel free to let me know if you have any more questions about it.
Thanks Jenaca (and everyone else)!
Have a great day,
