I Heart/Hate My Budget

I Heart/Hate My Budget

I moved to my current location a few months ago and accepted a job that pays $7,000 less a year than my last job. While it may sound crazy to some, I think most would agree with the statement "Money isn't everything". Because it isn't. I love my current job. When I am there, I'm happy. I like the people I work with, I find my actual work interesting, and I feel needed and appreciated. I leave it at the end of the day and never think about it after I drive out of the parking lot. But did I mention I barely make above minimum wage and have bare bones health insurance with a $5,000 deductible?

So I have decided to use the last two months to figure out my budget, which I need to stick to pretty closely. Here is what I've figured out so far:
