Budget of 2008

In my previous post, I was a little bit weird being happy after 2 days in depression due to the crazy fuel hiked. Not that I'm ok now, am still in depress and I think i need to re-evaluate my household expenses given the budget allocated by hubby for me *Bang my head on the wall*. Nevermind, let see how much I actually spend in one month. I hope nobody going to faint after seeing my list :
  1. Average groceries for a week - RM200 x 4 weeks = RM800
  2. Utility Bill - TNB - RM65 Water - RM60 = RM135
  3. Gas for cooking - RM27
  4. Dining outside (Dinner for every monday) - RM25 (average) x 4 weeks = RM100 (Only if we eat the normal food)
  5. Breakfast - RM2 (average) x 25 days = RM60 (including son's breakfast to school)
  6. Broadband connection (start next month) - RM68
  7. My domestic helper's salary - RM400
  8. Others (in case I forgot to list them out) - RM50 (cheap already oh)
  9. TOTAL = RM1630.00

That expenses not even included the cost of Formula / milk, diapers, wet tissues, kids shower gel. Let see how much the additional cost we have to cover :

  1. Kids milk - RM22.20/1 box x 11 box a month = RM244.20
  2. Diapers - RM78
  3. Wet tissues / shower gel / shampoo - RM30
  4. Total = RM352.20

I haven't even list down my credit payment, car installment, my vacation club (I took 4 years ago), fuel consumption, in case car rosak (which cost me a bomb whenever it happend), study loan...etc etc etc!!! Now that fuel price already increased, i'm expecting my expenses to increase at least 20%!

*Faint and wake up again*

Did you guys hear that the current fuel price might be increased in another 2 months from now??? if naik again??? What you are going to do??

Start growing vegetables and rearing chickens in your house compound? If the price is going to increase after this, I think we should get kereta lembu or kuda...

New Kid on the Blog said...

as i said, with this fuel hike, lots of people like us suffering. we can't go anywhere without proper planning. and most of the time keep staying at home isn't a good as well.. cuz, you need to step out and do some out door activities.... and once you step out, you will tend to spend too... so, that's all money... sigh.... sigh.... sigh.... sigh... sigh...

Shemah said...

Kadus_Mama said...

New kid on the blog ~ Hi!! thanx for dropping in my blog..as you've mentioned, everything needs money..what we can do..limit our time out..
