Dont Forget About Transportation When choosing a place to live, consider transportation costs--fuel, commute, and the wear-and-tear on your vehicle. As a general rule, living within 15 or 20 minutes of the workplace and doctors office can save a lot of fuel, travel time and lengthen the life of your vehicle. Lastly, include an estimate on the monthly budget spreadsheet of how much youre planning to allot for entertainment. That way, you can save up your "entertainment funds" for something bigger (like a vacation) or spend it on smaller perks. Its also important to save some for emergency funds as well, because cars break down and people do become ill. All of this and anything else you can think of as a potential cost should be included on the spreadsheet so youll have some idea of what youre going to spend before you have to spend it. As each month passes, simply update the spreadsheet to reflect actual costs.
