So, the idea that a couple and a bearded dragon can live on just $40 a week might be far fetched. I’m not sure yet. It will be a learning experience for all of us. Instead of just focusing on the $40 mark each week, I’ll be taking a more holistic approach to our budget. For those who are interested, my previous budget was divided like this:
- $20 on groceries and apartment necessities
- $10 on gas. I drive 12 miles three to four times a week.
- $10 bills/emergency/savings cash.
As I find what works/what doesn’t I’ll be updating this page with what our weekly, monthly and eventually yearly numbers look like.
