February Spending

March 4th, 2017 at 04:01 pm

Fixed Expenses:
Condo Fee: 185.00
Verizon bundle: 173.52
Cell Phone: 65.34
Pocket $: 20.00

Utilities: 94.40
Gasoline: 65.34 (had to fill up 3 times)
Groceries: 161.76
Hair Cut and color: 43.00
health: 19.03
dining out: 97.05

Total spending: 923.38

Some notes: I spent an additional 30.43 on groceries (not included in above total), but I used a Walmart gift card from swagbucks to pay for it. I also used a $100.00 gift card to pay for part of my hair appointment expense. My dining out category was very high last month, But I had several occasions (birthdays, co-worker retired, etc.) so this was not unexpected. Should be much lower this month.

I also contributed the usual to savings:
Escrow: 500.00
Retirement savings: $2500

If I can continue to live well on less then $1000 per month I am very happy!
