Cutting the Budget 2014

June 2014

Book and Author Source Price + Tax Budget Left
Casey’s Warriors by Ann Mayburn ARe credit $0.00 $22.19

left for June 2014

Week 26 of 2014

I made it with $22.19 left! And you say there are still a couple of days left to this month so slow down Shari…well, I am in New York right now and won’t be home before the last few days of June wind down. I will be so busy I will be surprised if I get to read let alone buy a book. June’s closing out with a lot left over and that means it’s time to cut the budget again! So July I need to keep my spending below $30 and only use the credit I have left at All Romance eBooks and my audio credits I haven’t be using.

Half way through the year! So have you cut your budget? Living within that budget? Let me know!

How was your week?

Cutting the budget again? That’s impressive. I cut mine a few months ago so that I make mine $25 a month. I’m down to $13 for this month, but I probably won’t spend the rest either with all those July review books needing my attention. I bought a 7 book box set, Tall Dark and Deadly for $.99 and got another $.99 book. I was thrilled to find a wish list book as a freebie so of course I snabbled that one up.

Enjoy NYC and your new book if you have time!


Nice! very very nice. I’m thinking about lowering mines too. Will probably take it down to $25 bucks a month since I’ve been doing really well so far.
