Notes: Spending was up (mostly the treadmill purchase) but income was also up. I did not receive the full $1400 stimulus as they used my 2019 tax return earnings. They have still not processed my 2020 return even though it was electronically sent the beginning of March. 


I totally blew my grocery budget. I try to stay at or around $200.

    I'm sure you'll do better on the grocery budget next time. You didn't spend any on take out food though, so that might be why your grocery budget is higher. Plus, I think some of our grocery prices are starting to creep up.
