I used to keep a really detailed budget, but now it’s more general categories.

Rent-electric, water, sewer

Food- Groceries, toiletries and out to eat

Car expenses- Gas, tolls, maintenance

Entertainment- Netflix, Hulu, Magazines, Books, Movie going, etc.

Savings

Travel, gifts

We have it split in threes- variable expenses, fixed, and annual.

Variable = gas, groceries, eating out, medical, car, work-related

Fixed = mortgage, utilities, taxes, retirement, insurance (life, disability, etc), student loans, and things like Netflix/Hulu.

Annual = car insurance & registration, home insurance, our CSA share.

I have spreadsheets and whatnot to figure it all out, and multiple checking/savings accounts dedicated to each one 🙂
