February 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. Gas & Fuel

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

3. Groceries

 

Overall budget

+$133

The Verdict?

Great!  Wedding planning & putting down deposits for vendors has really made me conscious about my spending.  

Next months plans:

  • Keep on saving!
  • Get rid of more things around the house, I love the minimalist look but can’t seem to achieve that.
  • Doing a lot of DIY crafting for the wedding decor.  Currently making paper and tissue paper garlands :)
