Today I’m going back to my roots to break down my expenses. It’s not until I really have to take a long hard look do I start to pare down my expenses. So, here we are. First, a look at the big picture:
|||June 2021||May 2021|
|Net Worth Total||$74,234||$67,523|
A breakdown of my most of my expenses
Ahhh, finally, breakdown time, which I haven’t done in a long time now, and it’s time to get back on track.
|Car||$413.25||Last time I tracked this, it was $910 because I was making Mr. H’s car payments as well. I also have less than a year left on my loan which is extremely exciting. I’m resisting the urge to pay it off in one fell swoop 🙂|
|Restaurants||$572||Up from $219 the last time I tracked this. This includes three sushi dinners and lots of…coffee..and gelato. Sadly, this does not include the $250 I spent at a steakhouse in July sooo yeah.|
|Personal Care||$251||Orangetheory membership, and some other personal care purchases.|
|Clothing||$829||I… have no excuse. I probably shouldn’t put off buying clothing though, and need to buy as I see things. On the plus side, I have absolutely no reason to buy clothes for the next six months+. I also am hoping to make some returns so this should improve.|
|Home Improvement||$425||This includes $200+ at The Home Depot, but technically we get $100 back through Amex. This also includes a new desk for Mr. H, who has been using a folding table for the last year.|
|Entertainment||$49||Kindle and Hulu|
|Travel||$615||Ahhh yes, that second $500 Airbnb charge and priority boarding for Southwest.|
|Groceries||$290||It is what it is|
|Hobbies||$206||Dropbox, Nytimes, planters from joann and a course for pinterest/etsy|
|Gas||$194||Not bad considering we now own a truck that average 11.5 miles/gallon…|
The Life Part:
I also want to document some general life wins, because it’s easy to forget all the good things that happened:
Some wins from June:
- I TOOK A VACATION!!!!! With a friend! And while I missed Mr. H, it was truly amazing getting 10 blissful days in California with no expectations. So relaxing.
- That is it, that’s the highlight.
