- Look for ways to increase our monthly income. I started my job the end of this month! This will generate about $94 a month. Yippee!
- Get caught up on all bills. Nope, nothing. We are further behind. I am very disappointed in our lack of progress.
- Purchase at least half of the necessary items for Baby #2. Nope. We have been saving for this, but so far we have only purchased a pack n' play (with the bassinet attachment) and an infant carseat. We still have a crib, mattress, and new diaper bag to purchase. But, this will be completed by the end of September.
- Stock up on non-perishable food items so I can reduce our grocery spending for the month of September. I have been stocking up on items, when they are on sale. But, I think this is part of the reason that I have been going over my intended budget for the week. So, not really working well with the budget. I have to learn that just because the item is on sale does not mean that I need to purchase it.

August Goals Recap
Okay, so I have really not been looking forward to posting this. We did HORRIBLE this month, and there really is no reason for our lack of payments, etc. I just don't know were all the money went....but, each time I went to pay a bill we didn't have the money in the bank to pay the full amount. We have to get this under control.
