Another busy month is in the books! The March results are roooooough. However, I think things can only go up from here. Right?? 🙂
Click on the thumbnails to see the full budget photos:
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?

I was pretty pleased with March’s results, but I’m pretty sure April will be considerably shakier.
I also had a miserable March! Check it out, I bet I “win”: http://thesingledollar.com/march-2015-net-worth-update/
However, April is looking much better; I’ve seriously buckled down on spending in an attempt to wrench the train back onto the tracks. I’m sure the same will be true for you.
