This is the second month in a row I’ve diligently tracked my spending so can I get a holler? *waits patiently for you to holler*
Okay, so this is the second month in a row that I’ve diligently tracked my spending down to the T and I am so happy I started doing this again. Yes, it’s frustrating to see where I waste money but I am loving the fact that I know where my money is going and areas I definitely need to cut back in. So, let’s get to it!
My spending overall decreased from last month by $375.09! That’s a major improvement! Especially since I spent 9 days on the east coast on vacation. The amount spent does not include any additional money I was able to sock away in savings but does however, include debt repayments to my student loans. I am currently on the public service forgiveness program in regards to my payment amount and payment schedule. If anyone would be interested in learning more, please let me know and I can touch base in a future post.
Although I spent too much in my personal category and in daily life, I am happy with the amount I spent while on vacation. I included the spending I did while in Las Vegas in my daily life category instead of vacations since it was basically just like a weekend out here. I also am pleased with transportation since $130 of that is actually car insurance and I drove all the way to Vegas and back.
Other than that, not too much to report. My spending in April has already been drastically different than it’s been the past two months due to trying to make a conscious effort of saving 25% of my income. It’s April 12 as of writing this so I’m hoping I can keep it up!
How did tracking your spending go last month?
