September Spending and Saving

October 5th, 2019 at 12:35 pm

Total Spending $1277.18
Total Savings: $2000
Other income: $100 swagbucks

Here is a breakdown of September spending.

Fixed Expenses:
Verizon Bundle: 159.53 (Internet, home phone, cable)
Monthly Condo Fee: 190.00 (includes water)
Cell Phone: 0
HVAC and water heater maintenance contract: 27.95

Utilities: 94.73
Gasoline: 32.65
Groceries: 334.57
Health: 39.30
Dining Out: 28.61
Other: 269.84
Cash Withdraw: $100.00

Groceries were high this month due to having people over every Sunday for football watching. I serve food and drinks for 4-5 people every Sunday and while this is entertainment, I also eat leftovers during the week so I don't try and separate it out.

The "other" category includes a yearly McAfee subscription, hair cut, color and tip, and some other shopping.

I was far enough ahead that my cell phone bill wasn't due until October so no payment in September. This happens sometimes.

I gave my nephew who had the stroke $100. He is struggling and has no income right now. He is waiting for a ruling on his SSDI claim.

* Condo is paid in full
* Car is paid in full (2017 Camry)
* No other debt

    You do a fine job with saving money. That was nice of you to help out our nephew. I understand that it takes a long time to process the SSDI claim. Hope that isn't the case.
