monthly percentage budget

My brother Chris is getting married in five months, and he asked me what percentage of our money we spend on different things. There are many other things to spend money on too (we spent 10% at home improvement stores in the last month for example), but these are the basics. Any advice for him or us? Hope it helps!


  1. Where are your savings? Don't forget to pay your future self!

    1. All the left over gets saved, but we don't save a specific percentage like we did before we got our house (mostly because we spend too much at Lowes and Home Depot these days). We should get back to it though, great reminder!


I adore your lovely comments!
