March Saving/Spending

March 29th, 2020 at 02:07 pm

Posting a little early but everything is paid for the month, and I won't be going out.

Total Spending: $1432.24
Total Savings: $7300.00 (includes a tax refund)
Additional Income: Swagbucks earnings: $104.75 (odd amount due to a $4.75 payout from a reoccurring panel survey)

Fixed Expenses:
Verizon bundle (internet, cable, home phone): 159.16
Cell phone: 61.33
HVAC and water heater contract: 27.95
Condo Fee (includes water) 190.00

Utilities: 83.92
Gasoline: 26.01
Groceries: 386.90 (stocked up)
Health:40.02 (scripts refills, vitamins and personal health care items)
Dining Out: 61.56
Shopping and Entertainment: 95.39
Hair: 130.00 (cut, color, style, tip)
Tax prep fee: 95.00
AAA yearly renewal: 75.00

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

*The grocery category was way high due to stocking up. April will be much lower!

*Dining out occurred very early in the month.

*Shopping included purchasing a new air circulator (Vornado floor fan). My old one that I know I had for probably ten years finally died. I got a larger size this time and using this in the summer really cools well, so I don’t need the central AC as much.

*I had my taxes done by my CPA friend and received a $3800 refund. This is why my savings was so high this month.

*I’m glad I had my hair done because this won’t be happening again for a while!

    Staying in meant I cut my hair a little bit myself. This is not good!

    One of my friends started a Facebook group about recipes during the 2020 Pandemic since we are all cooking a whole lot more.

    Glad your savings went up!
