First month on the "retirement" budget

If one eliminates extra expenses for moving daughter's family
we were right on track for the budget!
Even with the family move- we were close.
I like pulling out a set amount of money
monthly for taxes and insurance
That way there isn't a scramble for money
when those become due.
We also have a pull out for
the once or twice a year things
(vet bills, dental bills, pest control)
It doesn't leave much in the swish bucket
but enough to simply enjoy being retired.
After the family leaves
I will be looking into
what type of volunteer work I can
do - but still have time to just
be me:>)
