Welcome back to the budget breakdown here at True Good and Beautiful!
An expensive time of the year is rapidly approaching and here in this post, we want to help you get your budget ready for what lies ahead. The holiday season is one of the best times of the year but without planning it can wreak havoc on any income level.
With that, let’s dive into November’s budget post.
In these posts we will write-up typical expenses that may get overlooked for the particular month.
So, what expenses might you expect in the month of November:
- All Saints Day
- Party or gathering supplies
- Saint costume(s)
- Holidays Travel (get ready to break the bank if you are booking this late)
- New Year’s
- Fall Activities
- Football games
- Baseball games (World Series anyone?)
- Football parties
- More food
- Even more food
- Family activities (football, movies, games)
- Black Friday Shopping (Not-so-secretly our favorite day to shop for Christmas…gotta get them deals y’all!)
- Cyber Monday Shopping (introverted version of Black Friday)
- Spiritual reading or retreat fees
- Christmas (It’s coming faster than you can imagine!!!)
- Special Outfits
- Winter Clothing
- Ski or Snow boarding gear
- Other accessories
- Winter Fun!

Again, these are some expenses we’ve found ourselves budgeting for this month, so they might be applicable to you or not. Some of these expenses are best budgeted for as a sinking fund...like car maintenance or Christmas.
Happy budgeting y’all!
