The last two weeks have been crazy busy. In fact, last week I did not even post a Spending Report for October week 2. So this week, I will try to get back on track and keep myself accountable. Here is a look at our Monthly budget
Last week was a bit spendy. We had to purchase new uniforms for my husband and we did eat out a lot last week. Stress will do that to ya!
Sunday: Gas 75.00 ( day trip to St. Augustine included)
Eat Out: 23.00
Monday: Gas (husband) 43.00
Tuesday: Grocery 57.00
Wednesday: Lunch for me and mom $18.00
Thursday: Starbucks: for a friend an myself 8.00
Personal: Haircut 30.00
Friday: Grocery 58.00
Shower Gift 52.00
Saturday: Too Soon To Tell
Operation Christmas Child 25.00
The grocery category is currently at 385.00 I did budget 600.00 for the month ( and yes that is high). We both took our lunches to work again this week. The eating out category is inching its way up. Right now we have spent about 150.00 on eating out. Will have to keep an eye on that. We budgeted 200.00
Gas is a necessary expense. I budgeted 500.00 for the month and so far we have spent 400.00 this month. Unfortunately we both live about 25 to 35 miles from our jobs, but on the plus side, we at least both have jobs :)
For personal spending, I have gone over the set amount. I budgeted 100.00 and I currently have spent 300.00 !!
Our Personal Spending is up this month but for good reason. Hubs needed new work uniforms. To outfit him for a week of uniforms it cost us 195.00 and that is with a 20% discount. We have to spend this amount on uniforms for him about every 18 months. These costs were incurred last week.
How was your week? Did you stay on course with your budget or do you have to make adjustments?
