I budgeted $500 for my vacation. Aside from my fixed costs, I usually have $480 set aside for variable costs which include things like groceries and eating out. So the goal I had in mind was to spend $980 or less during the time period of May 1 until the end of my vacation on June 4. Here is a more detailed version of the actual spending that took place during this time frame.
|Food and Restaurants||$186.86|
|What my brother Owes Me||-$62|
|Left over Cash||-$35|
Remember this vacation was funded through extra income I earned at work which totaled about $500. It seems I planned the vacation costs perfectly!
