One goal I had was to do a zero based budget for July. It did not happen for two reasons.
1) With the ever increasing cost of gas, I had no idea what I would spend on transportation.
2) I was a lazy git.
I don't think I'll have a zero based budget for August, but I'm going to work on a more strict one than I've had the past few months. I like the structure of a budget. Keeps me honest and I need to start thinking about Christmas presents (yes, Christmas presents).
