Post Meeting Notes

  • Current "extra" money we have the ability to expend is $195.83 / mo
    • From this we should consider budgeting for:
    • A safety net equal to 3 months of expenditures (at our current state this is a long term goal)
    • Increased lease amount
    • Increased insurance amount
    • Increased increased utility bill

What needs to be taken from this is that we cannot afford a lease increase of $150, but it seems like we could do $100. If the money is not available we may have to sacrifice things like air conditioning and heat.
