March Expenses- $989.20

Here is a breakdown of my expenses for March.

Household $491.15
Transportation $16.50
Food $46.43
Entertainment $222.95
Debt/Education $116.00
Phone $34.51
Medical/Dental $61.66
Total $989.20

My expenses were up a little from the previous month due to purchasing a plane ticket to Atlanta to start my hike next month and school expenses. My food expense was too high last month and I’m going to cut that back down this month.  My entertainment expense was also a little high even without my plane ticket so I’ll look at those expenses a little more closely this month.  My school expenses should go down this month since I don’t have any graduation expenses or books to buy this month.  Everything else should be about the same.

I barely met my goal of keeping my monthly expenses under $1000.  To meet my goal of having my yearly expenses under $10,000 I need to cut my monthly budget even more.  That should happen once I start hiking.
