Sometimes I look at our finances and wonder what’s going on. From freelancing to hourly work to variable expenses as we get settled in our house, every month is a bit of a guessing game as to where we’ll end up. Luckily, we manage to save and thrive as a small zero waste budget household. We practice the first R of zero waste – refuse – heavily and that’s really helped us manage a small budget.
I almost didn’t post the promised January zero waste budget overview simply because the month was so different than usual. We both brought in and spent way more money than we usually do; and basically broke even. But I figured a strange month is a month of budgeting after all, so have a look.
