Spending Report for February 2010

Spending Report for February 2010

2 1768

Double Gold for Hockey CanadaSure, February’s the shortest month of the year but I’m still inconspicuously patting myself on the back for a job well done.

This isn’t the smallest sum that I’ve ever reported but it’s pretty close.

In short, I think that this is about the best I can do without pinching pennies to the point that our standard of living takes a dip *and* still overpay on the mortgage by such a large amount.

This also marks the 12th month that I’ve been reporting my spending. I’m not so sure that it’s opened my eyes to anything new but I do think it’s helping me keep my free-spending a bit more under control as I don’t want to shame myself online at the end of each month…

Anyway, here’s where the money went:

  • $1850.00 : Mortgage
  • $274.13 : Natural Gas
  • $177.34 : Electricity
  • $175.82 : Business Expenses
  • $113.02 : Taxes
  • $111.50 : Cable/Internet
  • $101.32 : Water/Sewer
  • $76.95 : Gas
  • $49.33 : Phone
  • $40.00 : Cash
  • $20.45 : Cough/Cold Medicine
  • $8.61 : Humidifier Filter
  • $1.25 : Vending Machine

That adds up to $2999.72.

Pretty good — but we’ve got some big ticket purchases on the horizon for March…
