Expenses For April 2006

"Beware of little expenses: a small leak will sink a great ship." - Ben Franklin

In continuing to monitor our net worth and our monthly expenses, we are using this post to discuss the expenses of April 2006. As discuss in our March Expense report, our goal is to lower our everyday bills as best as possible month to month. Here is our expense report for April:

We are still looking to see some of the benefits of our 'cutting the fat' from our bills over the next few months. So far we have seen the results in:

Our hope is to create a post showing 20% decrease in many of our bills in the near future. Our next goal is try to lower our monthly expenses to under $3,000.
