Here is a breakdown of my expenses for April.
April’s expenses were not too bad. They did total less than $1000 which is a goal I always shoot for. My expenses could have been much lower but I spent a lot in the transportation category this month. This is because I paid for six months of car insurance and I spent a lot on gas visiting my GF who lives three hours away from me. I consider that money well spent. Tracking all my expenses does help with my budgeting but I doubt I will be able to get my expenses any lower this month. I will be visiting my GF every weekend and driving my car for my job. I will be getting reimbursed for my mileage for my job. I’m not sure how I will account for that on my expenses. I will probably just count the mileage reimbursement as income and my car expenses as expenses. I did manage to keep my food expenses under $100 last month and until the end of the month when I went on a fast-food binge I was well under. I think I should be able to match or beat that this month as long as I can keep my fast-food cravings under control. My other expenses should be about the same this month.
