August 2014 Budget Recap

(Taken from my budget on Mint.com)

*NOTE: This budget is for shopping/food/gas only, or expense that I can control fully. I’m not including fixed expenses (mortgage, utilities, medical bills) because they’re fixed and honestly pretty boring to talk about. My TOTAL spending is not reflected in this budget. “Food & Dining” = Eating Out + Groceries *

Blown Budgets:

1. Food & Dining  (this category is eating out PLUS groceries together)

2. Gas & Fuel

3. Clothing

Bralette, Ebay – $3.49

Tie dye kimono, Ebay – $15.64

Black fringe kimono, Ebay – $18.43

2 bralettes and 1 pair of gym capris, F21 – $36.81

1 t shirt, and two other t shirts that are still in process of being returned, ASOS $33.20

2 muscle T’s, H&M – $6.43

 

Overall budget

-$126

The Verdict?

We ate out A LOT during our LA trip, and as a result the dining costs were high and the grocery costs were low.  

Next months plans:

  • Hawaii!  We’ll be going to Maui (my first time to that island) and Kauai for a little vacation.. meanwhile I have to prepare some YT work so I can schedule some videos and finally relax for a bit!
