Does this budget break-down seem alright?
Some of you may have read in some of my prior questions that my husband and I are buying a house. We’re 22, I’m a college student, and he’s what you’d call the bread-winner. Our loan was approved and we should be closing on the house this Friday.
I worked up our budget on a Word Document awhile back because I’m notorious for worrying, especially about money, and it all seemed to add up. I guess I’m getting the jitters because it’s getting so close, so I wanted to see if y’all think this looks like it will work out fairly smoothly.
I actually rounded up on the bills and down on the income, just to be safe, but let’s just assume this is all correct. In a pinch, we could easily cut the cable and trash service, but this is a standard month for us. My husband gets paid once a week, but I’m worried that even if we can afford it on paper, we may not have enough for certain bills when they’re due. It’s got me up all night thinking about it. My husband is certain we can do it, but I just want some input.
