Here goes another month in my budgeting adventures. I feel like I’m sort of getting the hang of this whole things. It seems so easy in theory, but when I am living it, it’s a whole other story.
I seems easy to “only spend as much as you allocate”, but in reality, it’s hard to stop buying things. As well, things always come up, as much as I try to plan ahead- I always forget something.
Let’s see how September went for me:
For one person, I eat out WAYY too much. My coffee intake was not bad, but I need to work to bring it down to.. let’s say once a week, so 2.68*4 (10.72). In general, I don’t think it’s a bad idea to have an allowance of $5.00 a week for snacks or coffee, but right now, I want to minimize absolutely all expenses.
I’m very pleased I came under budget for gifts, but the hotel killed me. If I didn’t have to pay for that, I would’ve actually been under budget!
I managed to pay some debt off, so that’s always excellent 🙂
How did your month go? Better or worse than expected?
