MARCH 2015 WRAP-UP! (WITH BUDGET PICTURES!)

Another busy month is in the books! The March results are roooooough. However, I think things can only go up from here. Right?? 🙂

This PearBudget spreadsheet really makes it easy to see where I’m spending money. Also of note, some individual things like rent, insurance, etc. aren’t listed here – but are all conglomerated under “regular expenses” in the second picture.

Here’s how it all went down in March!

Housecare: UNDER $29.02 – Yup! A little warmer weather means less electric heat! I’ll take it!

Groceries: UNDER $26.22 – This has to be simply because I spent ALL of my money eating out last month. 

Dining Out: OVER -$209.98 – I’m pretty shocked at the sheer amount I ran over my budget here. I had a whole three days off last month, so maybe I’m not AS shocked. The precious time I did have off was obviously NOT spent cooking and prepping meals at home.

Car Gas: UNDER $62.80 – I was able to walk a lot of places this month! Good for the budget, good for my booty!

Miscellaneous: OVER -$586.69 – This whole area accounts for my car malfunction that happened at the end of February/top of March. I’m still glad my bonus check turned up when it did or this could have been absolutely horrendous. 

Credit Card Payments: UNDER $60.00 – I need to get better at breaking even here in this area of my budget. I boosted this area so that I could get closer to one of my 2015 money goals of paying the cards off. Right now, this just reflects me paying the minimums. 

Got a couple different posts in the pipeline for all of you this week! Looking forward to getting some things out before I go on vacation! 🙂

How did March turn out for all of you?
