After the huge spending month in January, I am happy to see this lower one in February. This is every penny we spent this month. If there is something you don't see, it is HERE .
Gas and Electric $ 210.13
CableTV, Tel., Int. 138.34
Alarm Monitoring 30.90
Household Goods 287.43
Car Wash 8.00
Personal Care 105.00
Total Expenses $1577.80
Household goods this month was a couple of kitchen and bathroom organizers, glass containers for leftovers, a keyboard, microfiber cloths, light bulbs, silicone sealer, and foodsaver bag rolls, etc.
Groceries was low because we are eating from the pantry and freezers.
I purchased 3 pairs of shoes for me from DSW on clearance this month. I now have a pair of black flats so that I don't have to borrow them from my DIL. I also got a pair of red flats and a pair of loafers.
Restaurants and take out was submarines( $2.00 after using a gift card and trying a new sub place) and frozen yogurt. We went out with our family to Applebee's but that was all paid with a giftcard I got a deal on last year. We also had a couple of Burger King lunches also paid with a giftcard gotten on a deal last year.
Liquor was to replenish Hubby's Southern Comfort.
Medical was our health insurance, 4 prescriptions co-pays, and 1 doctor appointment co-pay. It was a good month because of very few appointments.
Personal care was haircuts for us and color for me.
Gifts were for Valentines Day and another occasion.
It was a very good month so we were able to invest $5,000. into our index funds.
Did you keep your spending low this month and invest some money or pay off debt?
