March 2015 Budget

March 2015 Budget
1 / 2 / 3 / 4 / 5 / 6 / 7 / 8

Purchased


Gifted

Money Earned from Clothing Sales
$58

Total Spent in the March
$54.31

Total Spent in the First Quarter
$390.06 out of $500

My first quarter of the budget is complete! I'm really enjoying this quarterly budget system so far. It's helped me try harder to save on certain items and think about what I really want. It's helped that I've also been doing massive closet clean outs and selling things (and that Old Navy product selections and deals have been getting even better). Now that the first quarter is complete, it's on to the second quarter and a fresh $500. I've decided for this budget that in an effort to save money, I'm not going to carry over the remaining amount.

For the second quarter, I'm trying to focus what I want to buy even more by making lists of holes in my closet what exactly I want to buy. I shared a few of those items in Wednesday's post. While that list had more than I'm actually planning on getting, it helped me really narrow down what I've been looking for.

Linking up with Fran for March's Budget!

Do Good
I've said it once and I'll say it again. I seriously have one of the coolest undergrads. They just announced "The Drinkable Book" project. 

This project is truly amazing, it looks like a traditional hardcover, but you can tear out a page and use that to filter dirty water. The researchers have found that "after passing water through the treated paper [there was] a reduction of greater than 99.9 percent of bacteria — a result so effective, it is comparable to tap water in the United States."

Not only does this book filter water, but the book's pages include relevant text, (printed in food grade ink) that detail basic hygiene, sanitation, and clean water practices. The plan is to be able to print this book in a number of languages to share it in communities world wide.

How can you support this project at home? Water is Life, has partnered with The Drinkable Book to help secure production funding and begin global distribution of the book. You can learn more about it on their website or donate directly to the mission. Even if you can't donate, just spreading the word and increasing knowledge can help.
