Last month I proclaimed that I would keep my expenses for the month of April under $2500.
I should have been more specific but, even still, I’m happy to report that my expenses for the month totalled exactly $2500.00.
I’ve put my wallet away until Friday so this is where the number will stay.
Here’s the breakdown for the month April:
So, after just three months of paying attention to my spending, I’ve taken my expenses (that were previously an unknown grey area) from $4133 all the way down to $2500.
That’s a difference of over $1600!
Basically, I was blowing $400 per week on non-essentials… and thought I was doing a great job.
And really, even this month, I *still* managed to “blow” roughly $175 on Smurf dolls, some eBay junk, and a tie dye t-shirt.
That means that there’s still room for improvement…
