So i am finally going to go through my June transactions to see how far i went over budget. I’m only using transactions that occurred outside of my vacation.
|Fixed Expenses||$64/$70 ✓|
|Everything Else||$763/$280 ✗|
I spent quite a bit extra on food, probably due to returning from vacation and to an empty fridge. I also was sick, so that tends to lead to an increase in convenience food consumption. Where I really went overboard was n the everything else category. My unexpected expenses included but was not limited to the following:
- $140 – Renter’s Insurance
- $100 – Gifts
- $100 – Clothing
- $300 – Amazon Purchases
The amazon purchases are really what got me. I actually hadn’t been keeping tabs on my amazon spending because I had an Amazon gift card for many months. I really need to pay attention to my spending online.
