I finally got around to putting my spending into my budget! I’m feeling quite proud of my work this month though, I must confess, a recent bout of illness helped keep my spending in check.
Here’s how the budget is looking:
|Bunny||$ 20.00||$ 25.10|
|Eating out||$ 60.00||$ 4.20|
|Entertainment||$ 65.00||$ 52.08|
|Groceries||$ 215.00||$ 214.13|
|Misc.||$ 45.00||$ 9.25|
|Total||$ 495.00||$ 304.76|
This means that I’ve got $190 to see me through the rest of the month. This feels like untold riches, yet every time I feel that I way I seem to blow through my budget.
To keep myself on track I wanted to detail how my spending looks for the rest of the month.
|Eating out||Breakfast with my dad||$20|
|Dinner with friends||$35|
|Work coffee runs||$10|
|Lunch with my mum||$50|
|Birthday visit with friend||$25||$140|
|Anticipated Spending||$ 180.00|
I’m hopeful that my Eating Out costs are significantly lower than I’m projecting, however, I’d rather guess generously and have more money leftover than be too conservative and find myself in the red.
How are you keeping on track with your goals this month?
