Shopping: 12.96

Total Spending $954.32

*My condo is paid in full, no mortgage.
*My car is paid off, no car payment
*No Credit card debt

Some notes: My Verizon Bundle includes a premium sports package (not giving it up)

Condo fee includes: water, trash removal, snow removal, all outside building maintenance, and landscaping

Groceries: Still too high! Working on this. This is only food. I pay for all paper goods, personal goods etc. from swagbucks earnings.

Savings: I put $500 a month into my "escrow account" From this I pay yearly property taxes, condo insurance and car insurance.

I also put $2500 a month into a retirement savings account.

I am thrilled to be below $1000 a month in expenses! Next month should be less as I work on lowering the grocery spending, and health expenses should be much lower.

    That's great to be below $1,000! I'm curious though, do you not have car/home insurance?
