December 2013 Budget Recap

(Taken from my budget on Mint.com)

The Verdict?

Oops.  Lots of spending this month… I couldn’t resist with all of the holiday sales going on.  :\   I’m going to hold off on clothes this year… plus I need to save up for the wedding!  Happy New Year everyone :) 

Next months plans:

  • Save money!  Shop less!  Donate and get rid of excess stuff!
