July was a good month for me. In spite of some extra expenses for my annual Zoo pass renewal and the impending birth of my first great-grandchild (wherein great-grandma was seduced by the multitude of cute outfits for baby girls, not to mention the combination baby carrier/stroller/bassinette that apparently every newborn must have--whatever happened to putting the kid in a dresser drawer?), I ended the month $21 under budget.
Better yet, I lowered my debt by $1072.17.
Of course, the roofing bill for my rental house hasn't come in yet.
But so far, so good.
