I finished recording and in one case writing out a check (to Mom) for the November 11 budget and then closed out that budget and then I paid all the bills and attributed out the money for the November 25th budget and then closed it out as best as I could without actually being about to go the bank to take my cash draw. But the important stuff has been done and it won't wreck anything in my finances or my life if the cash does not get taken out any time soon.
After I finished with that I set up my December 2020 Budget. I thought I had done that, but no, I had not. We should have hopefully dug ourselves out of our hole now, so that we can put $500 per paycheck into the medical fund this month. I would like to do this for December and January and then drop it down to $500 every other paycheck until I have the medical fund where I want it and then we will stop contributing to it until I deem it necessary to do so again.
In January we will be able to start contributing to the EF again every month so long as we stick to the new 2023 budget. We will be able to start contribting $500 a month to the beef fund. Last time it was a total of close to $2000, so this time I plan to save $2500 due to inflation. I will check in closer to butcher time, though, to see where things stand in case I need to save more. I hope not. That kind of defeats the purpose of buying in bulk, even for grass fed beef.
I need to set some money aside for house taxes and insurance, too and then go full bore on the EF and get it up to $30K, which is not where it was before, but is where I'd like it to be. I've got a long row to hoe.
