To show you all how being busy makes me forget that I have a budget.... here it is!
Shopping was a total fail as I mentioned in my last post. I did return the stuff from Zappos (Rafiki you know me too well LOL) and some items from F21 but I did love all my other stuff!
I had to pay $31 to get my license renewed.
Natural dog treats are expensive - $19, but my dog only deserves the best so I get him dried chicken. He loves it so much.
I paid for 2 months of cell phone bills since I forgot to pay last month, but it's not late, I just usually like to pay early and pay right when the statement comes out. The payments are not due until the middle of the next month so I just decided to pay for 2 cycles this time to stay on track.
As you can see, I spend A LOT on food. This includes Starbucks (which has been making me go bankrupt!), snacks (which I eat a lot of), meals out with the BF (we eat out a lot since we do not have a kitchen), and me buying lunch or breakfast during work because I've had no time to prepare healthy stuff myself. Since I'm on round 2 of my prep course, I figure I will have more time to do this for October and November. I need to, because that is WAY too much money to spend on eating out.
I also spent a lot on gas this month...possibly from driving to and from class, the library, Starbucks, food places, the gym, my new pilates studio, etc. Hope to bring that down next month.
I wish I had time to do weekly spending and workout recaps again but until I have more time, looks like the monthly budget overview will have to do.
The good news is I transferred over $1,300 to savings in Sept. My down payment fund is complete so now it's time to bulk up that emergency fund, travel fund, and gift fund.
I'm also debating on whether to get myself an iPad 2 as a gift for my bday (in Nov)/Xmas/applying to law school probably in December.
