Grateful Dead Tie Dye T-ShirtLast 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:

  • $1653.90 : Mortgage
  • $153.59 : Natural Gas
  • $124.01 : Business Expenses
  • $112.91 : Electricity
  • $109.26 : Cable/Internet
  • $99.99 : Frivolous eBay Purchase
  • $66.05 : Phone
  • $66.04 : Gas
  • $47.67 : Smurf Dolls
  • $40.00 : Cash
  • $26.58 : Grateful Dead T-Shirt

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…
