July is finally over! I’m taking nearly 2 weeks off of work in August for my upcoming Vegas birthday trip so I’m crazy excited.
Anyway here is the damage for July:
I spent nearly half of my budget on a pair of Uth 8ighty grey jeans, a Beautiful People lightning shirt, and a Silence and Noise Chiffon vest. (pics here)
|JUL||The Face Shop||Toiletries/Cosme…||–$34.96|
I spent nearly 100% of my budget on my The Face Shop ‘The Face’ BB cream. (review here)
$102.25 dining out cash + $108 credit/debit= $210.25. I’m overbudget by $10.25. Bleh. I must watch my spending during future summer festivals!
$95… I’ll let this slide. $5 overbudget for gas isn’t so bad.
Cash expenses for this month:
- $28 – DMV Drivers License renewal
- $30 – Korean BBQ Lunch Buffet
- $10 – Mongolian BBQ Lunch
- $15 – Food, beer at festival
- $20 – Festival games with fam
- $27.25 – Farmers market!
- $20 – Another festival, more food
Cash Total: $102.25 for food, $28 in misc, $20 for entertainment
$466.25 out of $500 for the allotted categories. I’m not including household items, rent, etc. because the spending for the above categories are the ones I can control more easily.
Not too bad, I guess. I did go over budget on a few things, but by less than $15 max. I’m going to try to watch my clothing spending (very difficult) so I can get this number down lower. Thankfully I didn’t spend much on shoes, accessories, or on decor.
Here’s hoping for August! We’ll see how my budget fares after my birthday and Las Vegas trip. Hehe.
