Well, here it is nearing the end of the month and I’ve finally got March’s numbers all ready for you to see!
If you’ve been following this blog for any amount of time now, you’ll recognize this handy-dandy budget spreadsheet that I love to use – PearBudget! This 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.
Housecare (Utilities, Internet, Netflix/Hulu, etc): UNDER $2.05 — This was an unexpected surprise, but I’ll take it.
Groceries: OVER $120.75 — Ugh. My food spending is off the charts right now!
Dining Out: OVER $115.66 — See the above.
Car Gas: UNDER $18.00 — Winning!
Miscellaneous: OVER $284.94 — This definite reflects some money that I’ve spent towards my vacation (starting MONDAY!). I didn’t adjust my budgeted amount for the month, but that might have been wise.
Credit Card Payments: UNDER $50.00 — I ended up making my big credit card payments at the top of April instead of March, so April’s report will show some higher numbers here.
Businesses: UNDER $25.00 — No major extra expenses related to any of my endeavors! Winning!
How was your March? Anything exciting happen?
One thought on “March 2016 Budget Wrap-Up!”
March was pretty good. I’m planning a big vacation for July though, which is going to derail this year’s budget a bit. I think it’s worth it though!
